This holiday season, we’ve asked some of our favourite creatives, bloggers, makers and OMHG members to join us in rounding up great gift ideas. First up, great gifts for creative people.
“I’m a huge fan of DIY kits, especially if they include top notch materials and a beautifully designed finished product. That’s why these Pin Loom Coaster Kits from Purl Soho are so fantastic. They’re useful, simple, elegant and a great intro to basic weaving. They also have a handy tutorial for the project with images on their blog, The Purl Bee. ” – Michelle is a printmaker and the owner of Kiriki Press. She makes embroidered doll kits and other handcrafted goods, which you can see at www.kirikipress.com
