Now I am passing on the message and writing to say before you dart off to the busy mall and the bustling mainstream factory-made shops, go to your local markets or craft shop. Remember that there are local artists and designers putting in long hours to get their products out in time for holiday shopping and I implore you to support them!
There is nothing more satisfying than discussing products with the actual designer or if your lucky, commissioning matching items to make the perfect gift!
My shopping (pictured) includes holiday cards by rednellie, a project bag by mum&me, a pencil roll (improvised crochet hook roll!) by Ruby Two Shoes and our very own Ebony Crochet Hook Set available from the Fibre Arts Road shop!
Happy gift hunting!
