Significant Seams Gift Guide: Gifts for New Makers
Searching for a few last-minute gift ideas? We've got you covered, with lots of gifts for the makers, aspiring makers, and non-makers in your life. And, in addition to these gift ideas, we've got a great sale on this week: all yarn is £2.50 per skein, and fabric on the bolt is marked down 30 percent.
Today I've got a round-up of gifts for the beginner (or aspiring) maker.
Gutermann thread and scissors set: Every new maker needs to stock up on the basics, like thread and sharp scissors for trimming stray threads. But just because they're basic, they don't have to be boring or low-quality. (£15.50)
Jar of beads, beading needles, beading thread: For the aspiring maker who isn't quite sure what to take up, here's a new hobby in three small gifts. (£10, £1.95, £1.90)
Wood inlay pincushion: We found this treasure from a local maker. It's the perfect gift for someone who believes that crafting doesn't have to equal twee or “girly” (whatever that means). £12
Baby Block Kit: Handmade baby gifts are the best. I think most expectant mothers discover a hitherto hidden desire to make something for their baby, and this kit is ideal for a beginner. Just remember to get her something that's just for her as well, okay? (£15, includes everything down to needles and stuffing)
