Makers traditionally are generous with their time and skills. Why do you embroider gifts?
Giving handmade ornaments is a tradition in my family. Although I once feared that making such gifts fed a selfish satisfaction on my part, I found that they were genuinely treasured year after year.
Anyone can go out and buy a present but when you make one, it is truly a gift of heart. Special care is taken to choose just the right project and customize fabrics and threads to the recipient.
Makers put time, talent, and passion into everything that they create because they truly care about the person for whom the gift is being made.
Most of us have been separated from family and friends at one point or another this year. In the process, we were reminded of just what is important.
This, of all years, is the one to make something special and start a new tradition. Be it for someone that you love, community heroes, or those who have been sequestered in nursing homes and care facilities.
