Makers are notoriously difficult people to buy gifts for, because they would always rather make it themselves! Never fear, we at EWE have just the thing for that special maker in your life — a gift that will keep on giving as they put it to use making more beautiful things. See some of our go-to gifts here, or stop by the shop to get ideas in person!
Ritual Dyes knitters backpacks, pouches, and moon belt bags
These ever-popular bags are handmade in Portland, Oregon from durable canvas with leather accents. We love how thoughtfully designed the knitters backpack and the moon belt bag are — both bags allow you to pull from yarn held in the bag without any snagging or resistance, while still keeping the yarn secure enough that it won't pull out. There truly is nothing better for keeping your knitting neat on-the-go!
See all our Ritual Dyes bags, including the small notions pouches and optional leather straps for the moon bags, here.
Long Island Livestock Co. lanolin body products
We are obsessed with these lanolin-based products that are just the thing for knit-ready fingertips all winter. The shepherdess body butter is a rich, unique blend of lanolin, moringa oil, and horsetail extract that makes a great all-over cream for all seasons. The shepherdess salve has a high concentration of lanolin and is perfect for dry hands, cuticles, cracked heels, and any other areas that need extra love in the driest months of the year! Last but not least, the lanolin lippy is the perfect stocking stuffer for everyone — knitters and non-knitters alike! — on your list.
Leather notions kits
We love these sweet leather goods imported from a small Canadian company! The leather is supple and rich, and it will age beautifully with a natural patina. Each notions kit comes equipped with yarn snips, a 60" tape measure, a tiny pencil, and a darning needle.
Coco Knits Knitting Tools
The blocking kit is only available in-store.
Coco Knits makes all our favorite go-to knitting notions, from stitch markers and stitch holders to the all-inclusive blocking kit. The kit is a great price for what it includes: 18 (more than any other blocking kit) rubber blocking mat pieces — carpeted on one side to be grippy for blocking wet wool, these are the best blocking mats! — a gingham cloth with squares measuring exactly 1x1" for projects that require measuring during blocking, and a tin of t-pins. We also love the new stitch marker set, which includes every variety of markers you could ever need!
Twig & Horn Waxed Canvas Crossbody Bags
These bags are only available in-store. Stop by to see them in person!
These crossbody bags from Twig & Horn have been a long-time favorite of our shop staff, and T&H redesigned them this year to feature more durable leather straps and hefty, water resistant waxed canvas. We particularly love the new charcoal color!
Just in from Denmark, leather Cocoons
You may have seen Jacqui walking around the shop with one of these clever tools. A leather cocoon for your yarn which you can wear with a leather wristlet (or hang). Keeps your yarn from tangling and you on your feet.
Lykke Interchangeable Needle Sets
Lykke interchangeable needle sets are wildly popular because they are a great price point for high quality needles in a streamlined, stylish case. We carry the 5" and the 3.5" sets in "Driftwood" and "Indigo," and also the crochet hook set. These sets make great gifts for knitters!
Janome Sewing Machines
We stock a few models of Janome sewing machines and serger. These are the machines we use in the studio everyday and at a great price!
And if all else fails...
