TAFA’s Gift Guide: Christmas Decorations
We have been doing a series of posts on ideas of what would make great holiday gifts from our Member products. We’ve shown you great handmade scarves, hats and gloves, gifts for kids, stocking stuffers and created a DIY guide of supplies and tools. Most of what we offer is handmade, one-of-a-kind and when you buy from our members, you get that feel-good satisfaction of supporting the handmade lifestyle and small businesses. Almost all of our members are women, and although we love our manly members, too, you might find an extra value to supporting the talent and labor of these women-owned businesses.
For this post, we will point you to some of our members who offer specific, Christmas-themed decorations. For those of you who go all out in decorating, choosing handmade ornaments, stockings, nativities and table top settings adds warmth, richness, and a unique voice. Christmas decorations are also a great way to get the young people in your family started on their personal collections. I love attaching an ornament to my gifts. A handmade one, of course!

From there, you can go to their shops and see all of their products.
Are you filled with the Christmas spirit? We hope that you will explore these shops as well as our other members and think outside of the box! I find inspiration in what our TAFA members are making every day and it gives me a warm thinking to think of all of them, working away at what they live, all over the world! We have over 500 members in 44 countries and our common language is this love for textiles and fiber art. Some are rooted in traditional techniques and designs while others push their methods to the limits of their imagination! It’s a great community and I love being a part of it. You are also invited to join in the excitement by connecting with and supporting them.
Most importantly, if you celebrate Christmas, we wish you a wonderful one with the most important gifts of all: meaning, love, charity, and good will.
