Here's the email to forward to your family and friends. The Haus of Yarn Gift Guide! We have highlighted  some of our favorite things that any knitter or crocheter would love to receive! 

Gifts under $50

Under $50

Give the gift of perfectly finished projects! Knitter's Pride Blocking Mats and Blocking Wires are essential for making your knitted and crocheted items look professionally finished. 

We can always use a new bag. Sturdy and humorous printed bags from Knerd are a great addition to any knitter's collection!

Beautiful and useful, Yarn Bowls from Pawley Studios are hand made in Russellville, KY. Keep your yarn from rolling on the floor and getting dirty!


Gifts under $25

Under $25

We have lots of gifts in the $25 range. Local artist Kim Barrick, who made the beautiful yarn painting that hangs behind our counter, dropped off packs of note cards featuring her yarn works. These are going fast!  

Make blocking easier and faster with Knit Blocker pins from Knitter's Pride. Multiple pins in one solid piece make pinning straight edges a breeze.

From Fringe Supply Co. we have a stylish and roomy tote bag. Fill the Knit and Let Knit bag with your projects or your groceries. It can hold it all!

Handmade Serendipity Needles are a fun addition to any needle collection. 

We love the 365 Knitting Stitches a Year perpetual calendar. Learn a new stitch every day. Great for beginner or advanced knitters alike!


Gifts under $15

Under $15 and Stocking Stuffers!

Obviously we love bags around here. Della Q makes perfect project bags from super soft cotton. These are great for popping in your purse or tote to keep your knitting safe from snags.  

Locally made Thistle Farms lotion is great for everyone, not just knitters! We just restocked so have plenty for everyone on your list. Want a portable lotion instead?Lo-Lo Bars are solid and come in tons of lovely scents!

From our very own Meg, owner of KnitKnotes, we have fun gift enclosure cards. Perfect for anyone who gives their hand-made items away! These are a perfect stocking stuffer!

Soak is always needed for rinse-free washing of all your fine hand-knits! 

For those times that you find a perfect yarn, but don't have a plan, Stashbot is a must. A comprehensive guide for choosing proper yardage, never get stuck wondering just how much you need for any project. 


A Note from Christina, Organizer of Threads of Kindness:

Hello everyone...I'd like to invite you to join a group that is very near to my heart as I know it is for many of you.  We are working to provide hospice patients in middle Tennessee with a blanket or shawl for a little comfort at a time when they may most need it and preemie blankets and hats to many of the Nashville's Neo-Natal units.  If you think this giving opportunity may be right for you, please reach out to us.  We are fortunate to have generous yarn donations from Haus of Yarn helping us along our way and would love to share our stash with you.
