Handmade Holiday

MAKE-IT-TAKE-IT-2013

Here at Halcyon Yarn we’re all about handmade, whatever your craft (or crafts for many of us) might be – weaving, knitting, rug hooking, spinning, crocheting or felting. There’s something about creating an item from scratch. You can’t match the feelings it evokes, the sense of accomplishment, the relaxation, not to mention the legacy and memories that live on in the things we create.

With Halloween behind us and Thanksgiving and the season of merriment ahead, these sentiments will be gushing forth. So take the time to enjoy the craft you love. Create something special for those you care about, big or small. We’ve done a little brainstorming to come up with some handmade gift giving ideas.

First on the list is Christmas stockings, talk about a memory maker for generations to come. Several years ago I wrote a blog post “Who Made Your Christmas Stockings”. Check it out and see if you have similar sentiments or just get started creating your Christmas stockings for future memories. We have a wonderful selection of stocking kits Christmas Tree Stocking Kit, Snowman Christmas Stocking Kit Lighthouse Christmas Stocking Kit Halcyon Christmas Stocking Kit Sailboat Christmas Stocking Kit Cardinal Christmas Stocking Kit
