Handmade Gifts Guide

As you select gifts for your loved ones this holiday season, I hope you will consider the beauty, uniqueness, and character of hand-crafted gifts, made by artists and craftmakers either in your neighborhood or in a faraway corner of the world. Here is a selection of items made by artists whom I know, whose pieces I own and cherish, or whose work I admire. Happy thoughtful shopping, everyone!

Oh, and if you are up for treating yourself or a loved one to a hand-knit piece from my wearable fiber collection, please enjoy complimentary shipping, now through November 26, on all orders placed in my Online Shop (just enter code "ilovehandmade" at checkout).
