Quilting & Sewing Gift Ideas

A Maker’s Gift Guide

It’s that time of year – time to start planning for your holiday gift giving! 


The holidays are such a heart warming time of year. Gifts made by a maker for a special someone have a unique magic. They are made with love and that love is woven into each piece of fabric,  stitched in with each stitch and  gives that hand made gift its magical powers of speech.

The gift says, I love you.

While I love making gifts, sometimes finding the right ideas for the gifts is a struggle. 

To help you with your gift giving plan, I have teamed up with Kris Poor (Poorhouse Quilts) and Joanne Hillestad  (Fat Quarter Gypsy and Swirly Girls Designs) to bring you A Maker’s Guide to Gift Giving!




We are going to be posting ideas for you of gifts you can make for family, friends and yes, even co-workers over the next few weeks to get those creative juices flowing and get you in the spirit of the holidays.

And while it is always better to give than to receive, we will even have suggestions for gift ideas for you! We all deserve a little pampering, right?



Follow Kris, Joanne and me on Instagram: @fatquartergypsy, @poorhousequilts, @swirlygirlsdesign and @seamslikeadreamquilts for inspiration 2 x week from October 19th until Thanksgiving! We will be posting every Tuesday and Saturday with some great ideas for gift giving.

And if you can’t remember all those accounts- look for the hashtag #amakersgiftguide!



Not on Instagram? You can follow along on Facebook too!



But don’t worry if you are not on Instagram or Facebook. I have created a page on my website (and so has Joanne and Kris!) so you can follow along there as well. Click here to go to the page… though I haven’t yet added the fun stuff! But keep checking back!

Be sure to look for our post in the next issue of the AQS magazine to see some of our gift ideas!

happy quilting,
