Shop Local! Christmassy Craft Supplies
A treasury of craft supplies shops on Etsy that are all based in the UK and all currently stocking Christmas ribbons, buttons, bakers twine and lots of lovely festive supplies - browse them all here - Christmas Craft Supplies Treasury.
I've created a list here too which has even more Christmas supplies I have my eye on and it's growing daily!
My particular favourite are these antique wooden bobbins which would actually make a lovely Christmas decoration all by themselves.
I'm always on the look out for Craft Supplies shops from the UK, especially those that specialise in some really good quality supplies, or even handmake them. I've just discovered Sew Stick It which has some lovely 100% Natural biodegradable hemp cord in Christmas colours and lots more.
These antique looking *but actually new* spools are available from Paper Fish - a very well establish craft supplies shop from the UK (currently with over 6,500 sales). I think I'm a bit obsessed with wooden spools and bobbins at the moment, maybe it's a Christmassy thing. Kirsty also sells these little wooden spools below which are very sweet!
I hope all your Christmas prep is going well and if you are selling at any fairs and markets be sure to take a look at this huge list of Craft Fair Display Ideas - it's not too late to perfect your stall! Antique Spools would look great as little props alongside your handsewn items!
