It's a Fiber Lover's Fa La La!
No matter who's on your list this holiday season, it can be challenging to shop for family and friends. Maybe they have everything or you're just plain bad at anticipating what the best gift might be. (I can't be the only one who struggles to find the perfect items!) Either way, if you have fiber lovers on your gift list this year or just those who admire the craft for afar, Created by Elsie B has you covered! We have a wide variety of products across a broad range of prices so you can find just the right thing for the special someone in your life - even if that special fiber lover is yourself! Settle in with a nice hot cup of holiday cheer while we unwrap our very favorite items to put under your tree this year.
If you have someone in your life who constantly admires your spins and leans toward the crafty side, gift them with their own beginner's spinning kit. Our Elsie B drop spindle is ridiculously affordable at only $10, giving you plenty of budget room to pick up a braid of fiber to learn on. (Falkland, Blue Faced Leicester, Polwarth and Targhee are our recommendations for beginners.) The drop spindle is beautifully crafted and comes with an instruction sheet that will have your friends and family spinning away in no time. We particularly love gifting this item to children as it is such an accessible introduction to the craft.
It doesn't matter whether you're a spinner or not or even have the slightest clue what to do with fiber, we think everyone will love our 2020 calendar. If your friends admire your work but don't spin, a calendar is the perfect gift. Or, for introducing your spinning friends to Created by Elsie B without breaking the bank, this will do the trick! With a visual explosion of color and pattern, the Year of Fiber calendar is both useful and breathtaking. This product is a mere 36.50 which includes shipping! What's not to love? Of course, if you want to splurge for yourself or a friend, we have a plethora of options to bring home all the featured fibers.
What is a cute, functional and extremely affordable fiber lover's gift? Our Created by Elsie B sheep notions bags, of course! These handcrafted zippered bags are designed to hold stitch markers, needles and small projects, but the truth is that they are extremely versatile. Notions bags can hold art supplies, makeup or change, to name just a few non-fiber uses, which makes them an ideal gift for anyone on your list. At just $24, you can easily give them everyone you love. (P.S. They have a pocket inside to keep everything organized and neat!)
This Elsie B gift item is definitely a splurge, but our handwoven scarves are well worth the cost! (They range from $125 to $175 depending on the yarns used and the size and width of each piece.) Each one is unique, handmade with artisan yarns and one of a kind. From the cheerful tones of Citrus Grove to the deep moodiness of Smoke on the Water, there is a perfect scarf for all your favorite people. This is another Created by Elsie B product that can be adored and enjoyed by anyone, regardless of their level of craftiness and creativity. Gift a handwoven scarf to your mom, your sister or yourself!
Whether you're just getting started or have been enamored with fiber crafts for a while, there is always something you could add to your supplies to make your life easier. At Created by Elsie B, we have a wide variety of spinning accessories to take it up a notch. We carry Spinolution wheels that make truly high-impact gifts. (We're a bit partial to the Firefly!) For affordable add-ons that would make any spinner swoon, we recommend our Niddy Noddy or skein winder. We also can't seem to get enough extra bobbins (starting at just $39!) with capacities from 4 ounces all the way to our giant 64-ounce Spinolution bobbin.
The holidays are a magical time! While traditions and family are what truly bring meaning to the season, there is just something about giving the perfect gift that makes our hearts sing, isn't there? We have something for everyone on your list. In addition to these recommendations, you can grab a Created by Elsie B gift card starting at just $25, so your fiber aficionado can make their own selection.
