Gift Ideas Tutorials and Cyber Monday Fun

Have you begun your holiday shopping? I have, placing a few orders online on Black Friday sales and I am still looking for a few more things for special gifts. Here are more deals for Cyber Monday from my affiliate vendors with some of my free tutorials. For those of us in the creative arts, sometimes it is hard to get a perfect gift for the friend that has a huge stash. I have found that consumable products are great gifts, things that don’t need to be dusted or stored. For the sewing artist, consider threads, new needles, and replacement rotary cutter blades. Maybe in a handmade sewing case like this one from my Christmas in July event a few years ago. Sulky Thread has a new special for Cyber Monday, so you can fill it with quilting thread! Plus free shipping on orders of $60.

Giving Gifts From The Kitchen comes from the heart. This post has my Double Dutch Chocolate Brownie mix recipe with a downloadable pdf of the recipe, along with a few more, and printable gift tags. It also has a recipe for grilling herb and spice mix for the guys. Find airtight glass jars for these gifts at Amazon – Airtight Sealing Jars and Treat Bags.

My Festive Tree Skirt Tutorial on MadamSew published in November, see the link for the free pattern. I put it under our tree for this season. While you are there, see the MadamSew Sitewide Closeout Prices and Free Gifts Sale for Cyber Monday!. Spend $30 and pick 1 free gift. Spend $50 and pick 2 free gifts. Spend $70 and pick 3 free gifts. Spend $90 and pick 4 free gifts!

Make a Wool Press Mat carrier that will fit over your wheeled crate handle or suitcase handle with my free tutorial. Click on Wool Press Mat for a good deal on a large size wool mat from MadamSew.

If you enjoy stamping, this is a fun time to get started on your cardmaking. Even if you don’t stamp, you can still make cards using elements from last year’s cards you received. On my post Stamping Christmas Cards, see how you can use a combination of both ideas to create your holiday greetings. Impression Obsession has Limited Edition Cling Sets and Clearance Deals with November featuring snowmen. Check out their new line of papers! Get 25% off sitewide with promo code THANKS22, through Cyber Monday and includes clearance items. Be sure to see the Last Chance category with new items just found in the warehouse.

See my No Waste Flying Geese tutorial, then you’ll be all set to make the Christmas Flying Geese Table Runner. Shop the sales at Fat Quarter Shop to find a great center fabric, like the designs from Susan Winget or a fun panel. Sales on Notions, Books, Patterns, and Fabric. This month get 20% off the Basic of the Month, Organic Mammoth Flannels. Sale 30% Off the Books of the month by Pat Sloan. See the Precuts of the week, and don’t forget the daily Flash Sale.

See my tutorial on Paper Piecing Basics and Tips, then you’ll be ready to make the placemats for Christmas using Lori Holt’s Vintage Christmas Book, available at Fat Quarter Shop.  It is also available on Amazon – Vintage Christmas Book at Amazon.  Then click on my category on the sidebar of Vintage Christmas Quilt Along to see my tips and notes on the patterns. Originally this was going to be six months, but it went a bit longer. We did two blocks every month. I do enjoy hosting quilt alongs, and I’m sure I’ll do something next year. I won Best of Show in the Crafting category for the set at the Mountain State Fair in 2021.

Some of my favorite books for inspiration come from C&T Publishing. Many of these books are still available in print, ebook or on-demand publishing. Find new ideas with New Releases at C&T Publishing! Today only, get 30% Off all books with code CYBERMONDAY30.

Amazon’s Holiday Gift Guide is full of fun stocking stuffers, craft deals, kitchen goodies and more. New items are on Sale for Cyber Monday! There is also a new Handmade section for small business artisans, much like Etsy used to be. Check out the deals in Arts, Crafts and Sewing! If you are a Prime member, using my links will not cost you any more, and you still use your own account. If you are not a Prime member, check out the Prime Free Trial for 30 days. Just enough to get you free delivery all through Christmas.

I really appreciate it when you can use these links to begin your holiday shopping, as they help pay the costs of the blog, keeping obnoxious ads off my posts, and funding the costs of server space, domain, photo storage, shipping prizes, materials for new designs and giveaways. Thank you!

Have fun shopping on Cyber Monday!
