National Handmade Day recognizes all those who put forth their creative talents into gifts that warm the heart and leave us awe.
Whether its baked goods, beauty products or woodcraft, quilts, toys or artwork, those who create handmade gifts do so with an eye toward craftsmanship. Some carry on traditions from one generation to the next and others transfer skills learned in a trade making it an art form. From artisans to craftsman, tinkerers and those with eclectic style who create beautiful, functional works of art and scrumptious delights, each shares a bit of their passion.
For anyone who has ever received a handmade gift, we delight in these one-of-a-kind treasures. Baked goods, bath and skin products are savored, and we can’t wait for more. Pottery, jewelry and other designs become heirlooms, handed down from generation to generation, gathering history wherever they go. We marvel at each stitch in a quilt or notch in a carving, the care taken to make just the right cut or to pair scents or colors. Custom pieces carry even more meaning.
From inspiration to finished piece, those who have a passion for handmade crafts delight in their projects. It brings pleasure to their lives, and they enjoy bringing them to you.
