The Quilter's Christmas Gift Guide

When it comes to Christmas gifts, crafty ones are always my favourite both to give and receive because they bring the pleasure of making as well as the end result. And truly, nothing beats handmade.

In our '12 Days of Christmas' video series, we have done a round up of the best gifts you could give to your favourite patchworker/quilter/seamstress/sewer/maker of beautiful things (and if that is you, be sure to share this with your family, friends and significant others to give them a little nudge in the right direction).

12. Sewing Essentials Gift Box

Do you have that friend who is always oohing and ahhing over your makes, saying how they wished they could create something so lovely, but never has the guts to give it a go? If this answer is yes, then this is the perfect gift for them!

With all the essentials included to kick start the first project, and the added bonus of being presented in a beautiful little basket, this Gift Box is the perfect Christmas nudge to get crafty. Now all you need to do is organise a sewing get-together!

11. EPP Essentials Gift Box

Who doesn't love English Paper Piecing?! If you are yet to try your hand at it, I warn you now, it is highly addictive!

This parcel of happiness comes with all the tools to make your next EPP project a breeze, and the basket is the perfect spot to store all your pretty little hexies!

10. Omnigrid Foldaway 

For the sew-cial sewer, who is always off to a new class or sewing group, the Omnigrid Foldaway is the perfect companion. A combo of cutting matt and pressing board in a perfectly portable size, this gift will surely score a 10/10.

9. Kaffe Fassett Books

No sewing library is complete without the glorious works of Kaffe Fassett. Each book is bursting with inspirational photography by Debbie Patterson, with the shoot locations nearly as drool-worthy as the quilts themselves!

8. O'Lipfa Ruler 

The O'Lipfa Ruler is hitting the gift list because it makes for the perfect surprise gift that very quickly become an "how did I live without this" item. The lip edge acts as a T-square against the edge of the board to ensure an accurate cut and less chance of slipping. It is a great gift for the quilter who already has (nearly) everything.

7. Needcraft Home Decor Kits

These home decor kits are a fantastic gift for any creative; young, old, experienced or newbie. They are quick and easy to make and you can make it personal by adding 50cm (or less depending on the kit) of their favourite fabric to complete the kit. Choose from different sized lampshades, a clock or waste paper basket.

6. Stocking Fillers! 

Okay, i'm kind-of cheating here, but there are so many great little gifts that any quilter would love, I couldn't chose just one! Here's my faves;
