This has been a really fun blog hop. I enjoyed the responses from the Sew News Blog post and browsing what the others on the tour had to say and show.
Today I have a few more fun ideas for gifts for the seamstress, the quilter and the embroidery lover. And, it should go without saying that any of these gift ideas would make a pretty great present for yourself! Indulge!
It may be difficult to bring 3 different hobbies together under one gift guide. But, what seamstress, quilter or embroiderist doesn’t love fabric as a gift?
My favorite collection thus far is the Downton Abbey Collection. I am a huge Downton Abbey and Walking Dead fan. Fortunately for us they don’t have a WD Collection. Instead we have this collection of absolute stunners. As a garment sewer, I can’t wait to get my hands on this and see what I can do with it. What would a quilter do with this gift? Hmmm.
Second I adore this little gift box of fabric squares. I could see myself just taking the fabric out, playing around with it putting it back, taking it out, putting it back…
We all need, use and cherish our pin cushions. I think this sweet pin cushion charm is all the bomb and a $10.00 it would be great as a gift for a new quilter or sewist. Check out the sewing machine and quilt block too.
The little charm is featured in Editor-in-Chief, Ellen March’s favorites list, please check out what other great gift ideas she has and get 25% off to boot.
Books! Books! Books!
I’m old school. I still love going into a bookstore and I usually head straight to the craft section. Nothing beats an actual book in my opinion. If you’re still into books, there are so many great ones, its hard to choose one. Plus, we’ve got titles for any level of seamstress plus e-books make easy gifts, no shipping.
It’s no joke that we love to organize. I love these bigger Buddy Cases now in a bigger size.
If you haven’t checked out the latest CME Embroidery Collection, don’t miss out. These designs are perfect for the holiday season. And you can get the cupcake design for free until December 31, 2014.
Be sure to download these free gift tags templates for whatever makes it into Santa’s sack.
