Felted and crochet holiday ornaments are fun to create and make wonderful gifts.  They are fun, easy to pop in the post, kid friendly and bring the love, colour and beauty of hand made fibre arts to the home.

Hats and wrist warmers also make great gift ideas and our project based Beyond the Basics Intro to Colourwork and Beyond the Basics Knitting In The Round classes will provide you with skills and support for making the fabulous colourwork Clayoquot Toque by Tin Can Knits or Rebecca Glazier’s beautiful  SpinYouRound Wristwarmers.
