Guys. These dudies are the best gift to give for your guild’s holiday exchange. Or a super nice gesture for your granny that taught you to quilt. Stash starters are budget priced but incredibly beautiful. That’s why they are the featured little lovers for day thirteen of Crimson Tate’s Fireside Holiday Gift Guide. It’s a beaute, Clark. #crimsontate #FiresideHolidayGiftGuide#itsabeauteclark #stashstarters #amybutlerdesign #joeldewberry#parsongray #annamariahorner

You can use the e-Giftcard online and also in our brick and mortar for all fabrics, notions, classes, and gift items!

Day Fifteen

I’m giggling to myself on day fifteen of Crimson Tate’s Fireside Holiday Gift Guide as we present these cutie Made with Love sewing labels by Rae Ritchie. I made ornaments, gift tags, and have reserved a few for sewing onto holiday gifts. There are 65+ tags in the panel. I would give you an exact number but we had big debates at the store yesterday as to the ACTUAL number of tags, thus the reason I’m giggling. Oy vey! OK. Give that www.crimsontate.com a try. Head over to project starters –> panels #crimsontate #FiresideHolidayGiftGuide #raeritchieillustration#handmadewithlove #quiltlabels #diyholiday #handmadeholidays

Day Sixteen

The gang’s all here!!! Who doesn’t want to curl up by the fire and thumb through a great sewing book with coffee and shortbread cookies in hand? Or Mexican wedding cakes? (My personal favorite.) These authors, precious little lovers, have created fantastic resource that will inspire your winter sewing projects. Books truly are the perfect holiday gift. That’s why on day sixteen of the Crimson Tate Fireside Holiday Gift Guide, we support your love of books and reading and encourage you to get another bookcase and some floor supports to withstand the weight because we’ve got some goodies and you’re gonna need to make some room. #realtalk #Books #crimsontate#FiresideHolidayGiftGuide
