Maker Gift Guide








The holidays are here and believe it or not....all makers don't want JUST yarn.

Here are 5 gifts I would definitely love under my tree.

And I've also included a gift that gives back - which is the only maker gift we all should be giving this season!

The best part of the holidays has always been giving back.
I am lucky to have been able to give back in a big way through my day job.
Last year we filled our TV studio with single parents.  They were overwhelmed with gifts and were so grateful that their holidays were going to be a lot less stressful that year.


Yarn Canada has teamed up with Bernat Yarn and Patons Yarn to giveaway $2000 worth of yarn to use towards good causes.

The prizes are as follows:

1 x $500 of yarn to a Canadian group who knits or crochets for a good cause
1 x $500 of yarn to an American group who knits or crochets for a good cause
10 x $100 of yarn to Canadian or American individuals or groups who knit or crochet for a good cause


All you need to do to apply is fill out the form and tell their story, click HERE to give back!



If you've made it this far, I hope I've checked a few lucky people off your list!
Happy Holidays!
