Fall is always an exciting time for crafters. Projects that got put aside in place of spending time outside in the warm months get pulled back out, as well as blankets and sweaters that you couldn't imagine working on when the days were hot. Fall is the perfect time to take up a new hobby as the days get shorter and Christmas is right around the corner. What is better than a handmade gift? Our Christmas 2016 catalog just hit homes and we hope that you are just as excited about the new items as we are!
Our Emma Doll & Winter Outfits plastic canvas kit would make any little girl filled with joy. The kit comes with everything you need to make, which includes a 13" doll with stand, 4 outfits and accessories as shown. Emma also has many other outfit set kits available here for any season.
A fun new knit kit for Fall is our Top Down Vest. This kit is a fast cardigan to knit, it uses our Mary Maxim Aspen yarn and a 36 " circular needle, size 10.5 . This is a great beginner project, and because of the way it is knit from the top down, you will have no seams to sew. The kit comes in Small (36") up to an XL (48") so be sure to choose your size when you order. It is shown here in the color Alpine, but you can choose any color of Aspen you would like. Buttons are available separately.
We have 2 new Thomas Kinkade puzzles for Christmas, both are Disney themed. The first is The Little Mermaid; this puzzle is 750 pieces, and finishes at 24" by 18". The puzzle features Ariel and Eric along with all of their under the sea friends. The second is Beauty and the Beast Falling In Love, also 750 pieces, and finishes at 24" by 18" as well. These would be great puzzles to put together with a loved one with a warm cup of cocoa by your side.
We also have a new crocheted Christmas Tree kit available for Fall. Using Crocodile stitch, this tree finishes at 15" tall, and makes the perfect centerpiece for the holidays. Your kit will come with all the yarn you need, a cone, star and beads to make the tree as shown in the first picture. The second picture shows the tree with the addition of a strand of rice lights. You will need a size 7 (4.5 mm) hook for this project.
