STASH's Super Official Gift Guide for Crafty Peeps
Did the crafty cat in your life forget to fill out a STASH wishlist, and now you don't know what the heck to get them? Don't worry, we've got your back.
Here are our 2019 picks for awesome crafty gifts!
#1.) A Ball Winder and Yarn Swift
Every knitter or crocheter who doesn't have a ball winder, wants a ball winder. Trust us. It makes life so much easier! If they already have a winder, grab them the swift (it'll save you from holding the skein while they wind!)
PS, this gift is great for knitters AND crocheters!
#2.) A Sweet Set of Needles or Hooks
If you know what kind of crafty peep you're dealing with, a nice set of needles or hooks is every crafters dream. We have interchangeable sets of needles and tunisian crochet hooks, or a nice set of crochet hooks or DPNs! If this feels overwhelming, our team of crafty peeps are happy to help you pick out a set!
#3.) An Amazing Project Bag
Every crafter needs a project bag, and we have a project bag for every style and budget. We've got bags with zippers, bags without zippers, totes, bucket bags, baggu, and the stunning new Twig & Horn waxed canvas totes.
#4.) Needle and Notion Organizers
An organized crafter is a happy crafter! These amazing needle or hook binders from CookhouseWares are our new favourite needle case. Cute containers for stitch markers and other small notions are always useful to crafty peeps, too.
#5.) Sharp Snips
Every crafter needs a good pair of scissors. Whether it's a snazzy looking yarn snip or some stylish scissors, you can't go wrong.
#6.) Nifty Notions
We're pretty obsessed with Cocoknits notions. From adorable stitch markers, to the Maker's Keep system, there are lots of crafty stocking stuffers and gifts to choose from!
#7.) Beautiful Books
Books are awesome. Got a knitter? We have knitting books. Got a crocheter? We have crochet books. We've got books for weavers, dyers, punch-needlers, and a serious selection of magazines.
#8.) Cool Kits
From cross stitch to crochet, we have some cute kits that make perfect gifts. We love the Junebug and Darlin' cross stitch kits, the adorable animal felting kits, and the always delightful Star Wars kits.
Crafty peeps always want yarn. Don't think you're doing us a favour by not buying us yarn because we "already have a so much yarn." We have a lot of yarn because we love it. ;) If you don't know what kind of yarn to buy, come see us in store or chat with us - we'll help you find something swoon-worthy.
#10.) If all else fails, get a giftcard.
If the crafty peep in your life lives in and around Calgary, pop in and grab a giftcard. Can't make it in? Call us at 403-457-0766 and we'll help you out. We can even ship it to your peep. Please keep in mind that our giftcards can only be used in store.
