Handmade Christmas

With Christmas 2011 just 218 days away, there has been a lot of talk on Twitter amongst crafters of the plans for a “Handmade Christmas”.

The theory of which is that all cards and gifts you send are to be handmade, either by yourself, purchased from a fellow crafter or for those who like a bit of bartering there is the opportunity to trade your handcrafted items with other crafters.

The whole idea is to stay as far away from the high street and mass produced gifts as possible. Support local crafters and UK small businesses. Give something special and personal to your recipient.

Throughout the next few months we hope that there will be several crafters taking part, at the moment we know that the following are definitely participating:


Cards And Candles For All Occasions


Badger’s Woodcrafts


S L Jewellery & Accessories
