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

Day Fourteen

It’s day fourteen of the Crimson Tate Fireside Holiday Gift Guide and this one is a doozie! We’re celebrating www.crimsontate.com today and the brand spanking new e-Gift card! You read it right, y’all. You can now purchase e-Gift cards online that will be emailed to the recipient (or to yourself to be printed and given…TO YOURSELF?! No judgement). You can use the e-Giftcard online and also in our brick and mortar for all fabrics, notions, classes, and gift items! Gift cards from Crimson Tate don’t say, “I had no clue what to get you,” but rather, “I knew you would want to coordinate your own fabrics, dearie-lou!”

We’re also starting curbside pick-up today through Christmas eve. Yep. You read that right. We’ll bring your online order out to you! Just let us know when you’ll be down and we’ll throw your bag of goodies right into your car. You barely have to slow down. #crimsontate #FiresideHolidayGiftGuide#wehavefun#ireallywantsomeonetochoosecurbsidepickupsoicanbringitouttoyou#imserious #goodstuffhappeningatcrimsontate #handmadeholidays#suchprettythings #somuchfun #sewmuchfun

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

It’s day eighteen of the Crimson Tate Fireside Holiday Gift Guide and the temperatures in the midwest are dropping! My dogs spend all of their time sitting by the radiators. So in honor of old man winter, might we suggest this amazing bundle of Shetland Flannel in all the vintagey right colors. Swooooon. Don’t tell David, I think this is what he’s getting for Christmas. #crimsontate #firesideholidaygiftguide #shetlandflannel#cotton #houndstooth #projectstarters #bundles crimsontate.com –> project starters –> bundles

We’ve cut these dudies into the perfect sized pieces to make infinity scarves (1/2 and 1 yard cuts) or choose bundles if you want to do a little English paper piecing by the fire.

How To Make A WISH LIST @ CrimsonTate.com

Here’s a photo tutorial on how to create your wishlist at crimsontate.com!!  Please don’t hesitate to email us if you have questions on how to accomplish this!

First things first.  You’ll need to register for an account at crimsontate.comImage

Once you’ve registered, you’ll see that you can create a wishlist.  If you’ve already registered, login and head over to MY ACCOUNT.

 Image

Click on MY WISH LISTS:  (note, it doesn’t change color so it doesn’t necessarily look like a link)  This is what you’ll see.  Click the black bar that says NEW WISH LIST.

Image

 

Only you and whomever you choose to share your Wish List with will be able to see what you’ve been dreaming of at crimsontate.com.  You’ll create a name and password for the Wish List.  If you’d like different people to buy or see what projects you’re working on, create multiple Wish Lists based on projects.  For example: Mail Sack Wish List would have all of the components that I want to create a new mail sack bag.  Another Wish List might be an array of Harriet Headbands I’ve been dreaming of, so I’ll create a separate Wish List for that.  You decide.  Should all of your dreams live together in one list?  Or do you want to create separate lists based on projects, and quantities? 

 

Image

 

We find that giving a description to your gift-givers will help them understand your obsessions er I mean, desires.

Image

 

 

 

This is what it will look like once you’ve saved your Wish List. 

Image

 

Now it’s time to browse around crimsontate.com and gather all of the items you’re dreaming of.  Here we headed to Melody Miller fabric.  Select a specific quantity and ADD TO WISH LIST.

 

Image

 

Don’t forget about all the other players that go into projects such as thread, patterns, seam rippers.  Notions make great gifts.

 

Image

 

Image

 

You can select specific quantities that you’ll need.

 

Image

 

Image

 

Once you’ve filled up your Wish List basket, head to MY ACCOUNT and click on MY WISH LISTS and select the specific list you want to send out into the world.

Image

 

Here you can edit quantities or take away items you’ve decided are for later.

 

Image

 

Click ADD INVITEE and start adding names and email addresses of the loves you’d like to share your Wish List with.

 

Image

 

Here’s the gang I’m adding to my list.  At this point, you can send it to everyone by clicking SEND MAIL TO ALL or you can re-send the email individually by clicking on the teeny tiny envelope.

 

Image

 

So.  What happens next?  I’m curious about what the INVITEE will receive.  They will get an email that looks like this.

 

Image

 

And when they click on the link, they’ll be taken to a screen at crimsontate.com that asks them for your super special Wish List Password.

Image

When they enter the PASSWORD they’ll then be able to see your list. With your super nice note.  They can make their purchases from this screen, clicking BUY NOW button to right of product.  They can also decide what quantity they will purchase the item.  If you need continuous yardage, you might caution your INVITEES that it would be most helpful for you if they buy fabric to buy all quantity requested.

Image

 

Once they click on their cart, they can proceed with the checkout and purchase your items there.
