Quick Knit Gifts:
Still want to knit a gift for someone?
We have the perfect yarn for a last minute project...
Super Bulky Riviera
absolutely yummy!
Check out this free pattern on Ravelry:

You'll have a gorgeous Luxury Cowl in no time.

Quick Felt Gifts:
I'm addicted to cute felt crafts.
Probably because it's so easy to make
something that looks pretty darned good.
Have a family craft night making ornaments,
gift tags...cute little whatevers.
We've got felt and embroidery floss...or you can use glue.
Check out Pinterest if you need some ideas. 
Know someone crafty who needs a gift?
WoolPets Needle Felting Kits are fabulous
and fun.  Each kit comes with wool roving, felting needles
and directions for making adorable felted animals.
We have kits for Foxes, Penguins, Pigs, Owls
and Bluebirds (at the moment).

 Really cool new fabric from Riley Blake:
Union Jack Squares
Each panel has eight unique Union Jack flags.
Amy Smart made a fabulous quilt:
 Look for her Union Jack Crib Quilt tutorial on her Blog:

Of course, there's no time for making quilts,
but there is time to make a few cute bags.

 Laminated cottons make great totes too.

Deck the Halls

The days are short, we've just stuffed ourselves silly with turkey and pies.....
 what a fine time to be rushing about in preparation for
"The Most Wonderful Time of the Year"!  Right?

Don't want to shop at the Mall?
Come visit us!

Fabulous stocking stuffers too!

Making last minute-ish gifts?
 We have lots of new fabrics for your projects!
Here are a few:
 "Fox Playground"
Sweet new collection Dena Designs
Make a fun pillowcase for a girl or boy...
or a quick quilt backed with flannel.

PJs for the holidays?
Check out this sweet flannel collection from Riley Blake:
 "A Merry Little Christmas"

My personal fave this year...
"Betty the Yeti" from Robert Kaufman.
All of the flannels we carry are of superior quality.
They have a wonderful weight to them, are soft
and have very little shrinkage when washed.

Kaffe Fassett
Some new designs and more of his classics

No time to create?
A Franklin Mill Store
Gift Certificate is always a great gift!
