In case you missed the memo, Easter is one month away. Can you believe it??
It seems like it was Christmas a week ago, but it wasn't.
So, to help you get back on the Roller Coaster that is 2016, we have a few suggestions for those upcoming Easter baskets. If are lucky, your home's Easter Bunny is generous with his baskets and knows to fill them with Finchy goodies. But if the Bunny needs some direction, then forward this blog post :)
So let's talk about the sweet treats for baskets....
First up, we have these Macaroon Tape Measures. These Macaroon Measurers are perfect for both knitters and sewists. One can never have too many measuring tapes laying around, especially when they look edible. Did I mention they are calorie free?
Another sweet treat idea are pre-cuts. We have Layer Cakes, Jelly Rolls, Fat Quarter bundles, and Charm Packs available. These are also calorie free, especially the Carolyn Freelander Carkai ones (not pictured).
But what about Easter Eggs? You are wondering...
Don't worry, we've got you covered; we carry darning eggs! I would argue this is a gift that keeps on giving.
And we also have an egg shaped Dropcloth Samplers that would brighten up any Easter Basket. Buy it to make it or buy it to gift! We carry hoops, thread, and the pattern too-all of these would make the perfect Easter basket stuffer.
Okay...I'm thinking some of you are the Easter Bunnies and need ideas for baskets. No worry, we at the Finch have great ideas for you as well!
Knit up a Quince and Company Doll for your little's basket; Mary, Millie, & Morgan dolls are a winner in this house. Ben and his dog? So adorable. Pick up any Finch Make + Take kit and start knitting today. If you are coveting one of these kits, hint to the Bunny; the Finch has plenty in stock.
For those of you knitters who are celebrating your Baby Bunny's or your Grand Bunny's First Easter we have just the kits in mind. We have Blue Sky Alpacas Knit Kit Animals in stock, featured above is Mr. Rhino. The second picture features a hat and baby mitten kit; perfect for a newborn baby girl. Adorbs, no?
Sewist Bunnies we have ideas for you too...
These felt kits are so fun and we only have a few left and then they will be gone. Forever. So make that Easter Basket special and one of a kind with these Fairy Felt kits.
And if you want to keep up with a whimsical theme, look no further than our Mr. and Mrs. Gnome patterns.
I think we covered the basics, but I argue there is more to share. So here are a couple more ideas for you or your bunnies' baskets or yours...
There are two things knitters and sewist constantly run out of, or always wish they had on hand: all purpose sewing needles for machines, buttons, and blunt needles for weaving in the ends of knitting projects. Needles and buttons are great basket stuffers and I promise that they will be used and greatly appreciated. Especially if there is, or you are, the quilter. And don't forget, we have Finch Gift Cards available!
Let me go ahead and mention that we still have spots available for our May 12-15, 2016 Finch Makers Retreat. That would be the ultimate gift from your Easter Bunny, and a great Easter Basket filler!!!
What will be so special about this event is that it will be small and intimate. With only 10 women, we will have a wonderful time together working on our craft, eating delicious food, enjoying the scenery from the generous porches, and so much more. Be sure to sign up or have your Easter Bunny sign you up as soon as possible. Our retreat is on focused on making bags, and that bag is for you!
And don't forget....
It is never too early to start your 2016 Finch Registry. Seriously, start that puppy now! We do plan on hosting another Girls Night and Guys Night, and with Mother's Day around the corner (!!!), we can help the hubby out even more if you have one started.
That is all for now. Be sure to check out our Instagram for more ideas for Easter Basket and new shop arrivals.
See you soon,
~Stefanie + the Finch
