Holiday gift ideas - part 1

We hope your Thanksgiving holiday was as nice as ours.  In just a few short weeks we will be celebrating the Christmas holiday.  Since there's so few shopping days between now and then we thought we'd help you with your shopping by sharing items we think would make great gifts.

If you have someone on your list who you'd love to make happy all year long, how about enrolling them in a block of the month program?  We have several available but the most economical option would be Blackwork Sheep.  It's only $10 a month for 12 months.  For a few dollars more each month, you can add the thread kit.  What a nice way to let your loved one know you're thinking of them all year long.

We are betting you like needle cases as much as us.  We have one in each stitching bag, one by each of our favorite stitching spots, one in the get the idea.  Debby designed a darling, yet practical case.  It includes a pocket for the tiny scissors that are included in the kit.  Your $9.95 Penny Pocket kit includes the pattern and everything you need to make the case (a vintage button is also included).  We are also including a pair of small scissors.  Although the scissors are small, they're surprisingly sharp.  We love the fact that the sheath is attached because we are the world's worst when it comes to misplacing scissors sheaths.

Each kit is different so you can buy several for friends and each will be unique.

We also have extra scissors if you'd like to tuck a pair in a special someone's stocking.  They would also look cute tied to a gift bag.  At only $2.75 a pair, you can afford to buy several.

Assorted colors:  pink, yellow, and green.......sorry they don't make them in our dirty primitive colors but we can make do with bright in this case.

If you're looking for a unique gift, we have only one "My Psalms" kit left.  The backgrounds are cotton and the applique is wool.  This is our design so you can be sure it's not something your friend has in his or her stash.  The quilt finishes 42" x 42".  Your $62.95 kit includes the pattern, all fabric and wool to make the top, and binding.  Since we have only one kit, first come, first served -- e-mail us at info@sewgracefulquilting to reserve your kit.

Our shipment of Simply Moderne from Quiltmania arrived last week.  As is usual with Quiltmania publications, it's a beautiful magazine.  14 projects for $17.99

We also received our shipment of Simply Vintage but sold out as soon as the boxes were unpacked.  If you missed out and would like to reserve a copy, please let us know.  We have more on the way.  21 projects for $17.99

We have lots more to share but know you probably need to get back to your activities.  We'll be back next week with more gift ideas.

See you soon!

Darlene and Debby
