I realised that I was a multipassionate crafter a few years ago, and since then I have been trying to help other crafters like me get the most joy out of their many passions. One of the things that helps is having tools, supplies and books on hand that you love. We don’t have to have many, but what makes us happy is owning quality things we can turn to when we need them. If you have a multipassionate crafter in your life, here are my best ideas on what she or he will love to unwrap come Christmas morning.
Basic Tools & Supplies
We LOVE tools. Tools are our lifeline. With a good basic set of craft tools we can do anything. Anything I tell you!
Retractable Craft Knife & Fingertip knife
Paints – Acrylic, gouache, and watercolour
Inks – India inks and acrylic inks
Paper – mixed media, and watercolour
Adhesive – all purpose, PVA, tape runner
Creative books help us fuel our passion. Sometimes (rarely) we don’t feel like actually crafting, but reading about crafting is also good!
Big Magic and Creative You for creative inspiration
Vogue Knitting for knitters
Handmade Books for Everyday Adventures
Monthly Kits + Subscriptions
There’s nothing more exciting than receiving brand new materials in the mail. It’s like Christmas every morning! And having a trusted online source to go to for ideas and instructions is always a good thing.
Creative Bug – hands down my favourite site for crafty classes
Seamwork – for the sewists
With just under a week left you can still make some of these happen! Your crafter will thank you.
