Happy Holidays! How is your gift shopping going? Have you remembered to treat yourself to something nice too? Here at Parris House Wool Works, we want to help. First, be aware that between now and December 15th, we are running a coupon code in the Etsy shop. You can save 15% off any order of $50 or more by simply using coupon code HOLIDAY2017 at check out.
Second, here are some great ideas for gifts, for you and your winter hooking/crafting, or for someone on your gift list. While these are our top ten recommendations, remember that the coupon code is good for anything in the Etsy shop.
So let’s do our top ten! Just click on the item title to find it in the Etsy shop. Please note where quantities and time frames are limited.
Holiday Wool Fat Quarter Quad
Holiday colors, 1 fat quarter each, hand dyed, cut or uncut – your choice. This is a great selection of wool to hook last minute ornaments for teachers’ gifts, hostess/party gifts, or just for your own tree.
Complete Beginner Rug Hooking Kit
We have two versions of this, so make sure you check the shop for both. One comes with our 10 x 12 box frame and the other with our 12 x 12 folding frame. Fantastic and economical way to get someone you love in to the craft you love. You can also customize it with a different pattern if you so choose. Limited number available.
Americana Baker’s Dozen Stash
Only one available! This stash is a great way to start off a new hooker or augment the stash of someone experienced! Also works well for applique, felting, stitching, or other crafts.
10″ x 12″ Rug Hooking Lap Frame
This is a favorite frame of mine. Almost everything I hook that is not really large is hooked on this frame. I love its simplicity and portability. This frame is hand crafted by Bear Pond Wood Works in Hartford, Maine in solid, quality, no-knot pine. A great beginner frame, but also a great frame period. Limited number available.
12″ x 12″ Folding Lap Frame
Another solid and super popular pine frame by Bear Pond Wood Works, this one folds nicely when you take the base off to fit in to your hooking tote. Limited number available.
Hand Dyed Tie Dye Wool Scarf
Only one available! Need something for someone who doesn’t hook or craft but loves wool? Hand dyed tie dye scarf with hand fringed ends. Toasty warm and a good length to tuck in to a coat collar.
Reach for the Stars Snowman Pillow Kit
Great winter project! Reach for the Stars snowman pillow (or wall hanging, table mat) with all the wool you need to hook it!
Gossip in the Pines Pattern
Gossiping cardinals. We see them every winter. Who says females are the biggest gossips? These two gentlemen chatter away all winter long.
7″ Snowman Ornament Kit
Need to hook something quick? This kit is for you. Cute snowman can be easily finished by using fabric bonding material for the back. No sewing required.
Antique Hair Receiver
Only one available! I pick our local antique shops for the prettiest, most unusual Maine items I can find. I love this antique hair receiver. Originally used to hold hair from combs and brushes, this could also be a jewelry holder, contain small silk flowers, or whatever your imagination comes up with.
So those are our top ten recommendations, but again, HOLIDAY2017 gets you 15% off any order of $50 or more on ANYTHING in the Etsy shop.
Please note that this sale runs through Friday, December 15th. Some of these items need to be made and/or assembled so anything ordered after the 15th is not guaranteed for holiday delivery. If we have an unexpected number of orders on the frames, it may also be difficult to have those in time for holiday delivery as well, so if a frame or a kit that includes a frame looks like the thing for you, please order right away. First come, first served.
Thank you and I hope you have a holiday filled with happy memories and happy hooking! – Beth
