With the last postage dates before Christmas looming I have popped into your inbox with a list of lovely things that I think would make the perfect gift, either for a friend, a loved one, or just for you!
SPIRIT OF FLORA - STARTER PACK
INDIGO AND CRIMSON DREAMS BLANKET KITS
PERSIAN TILES - SANDALWOOD BLANKET KIT
DELLA Q MAKERS RANGE
The Della Q range of makers accessories are a stylish way to carry around all you need to knit or crochet on the go! I have made my mini messenger my go-to bag for everyday as, not only can I fit my every day items into it, but I can also pack in my yarn and hooks. With pockets, yarn guides and cutters an integral part of the bag, and stitch markers also added in, the bag provides all I need to craft on the go!

FESTIVE DECORATIONS TO MAKE
If you have a little bit of spare crafty time and some left over odds and ends of yarn in your stash maybe you would like to have a look at all the festive decoration patterns we have in store. You can choose a paper copy or, if you want to opt for a download version, you can visit the Janie Crow stores on Ravelry and Etsy.
BEADED CROCHET DECORATIONS
FESTIVE MINI STOCKINGS
My friend Rosemary made this fabulous bunting using the Mystical Lanterns Blanket pattern. Isn't it wonderful! Rosemary used bells and little elephant charms to make it so special.
I just love the Cohana thread snips and itsy bitsy, teeny weeny scissors we have in stock. The thread snips make the best present for any crafter and come in a choice of colours in a lovely presentation box. The mini scissors are just adorable and are perfect for travelling - be sure to take a look at all the images on the web site before ordering so that you are aware just how tiddly they are!
We have a few other smart accessories in stock, such as pendant embroidery scissors and JUL shawl pins. Check out our accessories page for more information.
THINKING OF OTHERS
When the nights are really cold and frosty I am very lucky to be able to curl up on the settee with my crochet for a warm and cosy evening. I know that I am in a very privileged position to be able to do this and often find myself thinking about those who are not so fortunate, especially those who are displaced or homeless, at this time of year.
Gift giving also comes from this point of privilege, so if you are in a position where you can find a little extra money, I urge you to make a donation to our two chosen charities this festive season. We are supporting UNHCR, who tirelessly support refugees the world over, and CRISIS who support the homeless. I know it's a tough time for many with all that is going on with energy bills and the cost of living, but even the smallest donation will help these worthy causes.
