Great Gifts For Crafters
I’ve been sewing my whole life, and I love creating sewing projects for our home. A few months ago I bought this exact sewing machine (Singer Heavy Duty 4411) because my old home machine just wasn’t cutting it anymore. My new sewing machine has been great for those sewing projects that don’t need to be made with my industrial sewing machines. This sewing machine is heavier than a lot of the home sewing machines on the market right now. Which is good, because it doesn’t shake if I’m sewing fast. It also sews faster than the typical home machine. It makes a great buttonhole, much better than my old home sewing machine. I’m really happy with my purchase.
I recently discovered these yarn bowls, and I just love them. They’re a practical gift for the crafter who loves to knit or crochet, and they’re also a work of art! Just beautiful! The bowl holds the yarn so that it doesn’t roll away, and the carved curve allows the yarn to unwind perfectly.
These necklaces are perfect for the crafter in your life! I love the that they’re personalized with an initial. If your loved on is not into sewing or knitting, they have many more crafts to choose from.
In last year’s gift guide for the crafty DIY’er, I recommended the Cricut Explore. I was lucky enough to use my next door neighbor’s Cricut Explore for my address sign. It was a life saver! The machine cut out all of the letters for me out of vinyl. I could pick which fonts I wanted to use, and also the font size. Well, this year Cricut has come out with a fabulous new machine called the Maker. I don’t have one, but I would love to have one! What’s special about this Cricut machine is that it comes with a rotary blade, and makes beautiful fabric cuts!
A fellow blogger, Angie Holden from the Country Chic Cottage, has created a fabulous video showing the features of the new Cricut Maker. I was amazed at the cuts she was getting with the Cricut! I know that if I had one, my grandkids and I could make some really fun craft projects! Here’s Angie’s video:
You can gift your favorite crafter with a Craftsy class. I’ve been a big fan of Craftsy for a long time. (I was thrilled to get to teach one of their sewing classes a few years ago, but I loved them even before I taught my class.) They have hundreds of on-line classes that any crafter would love to receive. Craftsy does a great job creating detailed classes on many topics. Like knitting, crocheting, sewing, quilting and many more! You can purchase a Craftsy class for someone else, and Craftsy will notify the recipient via e-mail (on the date specified by the gifter) that someone purchased a class for them.

What crafter wouldn’t love this 10 drawer organization cart? One of the best things about this one is that it has a small footprint. It has ten drawers that take up vertical space instead of precious floor space. I love the bright colors!
If you have kiddos who want to learn how to sew, this sewing book will be the perfect gift for them. I don’t have this book, but it’s on my list to buy! I love helping my grandchildren with sewing projects, and I think this book will be great for us to get ideas.
These Fiskar Softouch scissors are my absolute favorite scissors to use for sewing or crafts. The handles are soft and very comfortable to use. They have a spring in the handle which helps keep your hand from getting tired if you’re cutting a lot at one time. I have a bit of carpel tunnel in my hands, so these scissors really help my hands from hurting.
If you have little ones who like to do projects, these Sew Softies are the perfect gift! I gave my granddaughter this one for Christmas last year. (She was almost 5 at the time). We worked on it a little bit at a time, and she loved doing the sewing herself. Here she is with her finished bird. They also have several other animals to choose from. Each kit comes with everything you need – including a needle, thread, fabric and stuffing. The fabric comes with the shapes already cut out, and also has the holes punched for sewing the pieces together. I was impressed with the quality of the project. I was worried that the holes wouldn’t line up, but they all did. The kits have great, easy to understand instructions.
I hope this list of great gifts crafters will love was helpful!
