Gifts to Buy for the Quiltmaker in Your Life

We often want to show our friends how much we care during the holiday season and our quilting friends are no different! But the holidays are here before we know it and we sometimes need more hours in the day to get all of our gifts made. So we have compiled a list of even more gift ideas to help make your gift list grow shorter (and maybe your wish list a little longer…).

Whether you are looking for fresh gift-giving ideas for your best quilting friend or a small surprise for your trusty longarmer, we have a little something for every quilter, style, budget—and best of all, how much time you have before that holiday party!
