Day 5: Fabulous Felting Kits

Eight great needle felting kits, perfect for the holidays. Beautiful to make or give. Add a handmade touch to your home this winter. Needle felting is fast, fun, and easy. Adorable for ornaments or table top cheer… The flat felted tiles are cute sewn onto a pillow or tucked in a little frame to hang. 3-D sculptures look sweet tucked among evergreens on the table, in a wreath or hanging from the tree!

Day 6: Wonderful Weaving Kits by Emily Werner

These two kits offer beautiful twill variations in yarns we love. Each one offers a little something different than your typical twill scarf. Much like their designer, they’re beautiful classics, but with a surprising extra kick that we love!

Each scarf requires a four-shaft loom and is suitable for advanced beginners.

    I don’t do social media – guess I lose out!

      Hi Louise, We chose social media for this daily promotion since we try not to over-email people, but we don’t want to leave anyone out in the cold on this! As great as social media is for some things I completely respect not using it. Each day I’ll update this blog post with the new special so if you want to see what’s on sale just check this same link. Let us know if we can help, and thanks for your interest. Happy holidays!
