Black Friday: A Maker’s Guide


I think everyone has an opinion on Black Friday. Some people love it and look forward to facing the crowds and scoring awesome deals, others love it but choose to shop from their couch via the internet and yet others hate the idea of commercialism and avoid the whole thing.


No matter how you feel about it, the fact is some great deals are definitely available! Mostly in tech, toys and clothing, but my list is all (well almost) about fabric, patterns, notions!!! What isn’t sewing related is hand made creations from fellow makers. I love supporting small businesses so the majority of my list will be indie makers.

I’ll be updating this list through Friday!

Dutch Label Shop


Have you been wanting your own personal labels for your handmade items? If so grab them TODAY while Dutch Label Shop is offering 30% off everything! (code blackfriday30) This is where I order my labels and I love them.

PictureI have three Caheez satin lined hats and I love them. She and her team custom make each hat/wrap to order which can result in up to 8 weeks for delivery. Thankfully during her Black Friday sale  she will have a limited supply of “ready to ship” hats, so if you’re impatient like me NOW is the time to order. Also save 20%  from 6-10am Friday (code THANKS) on your knit hat order or select free shipping (code CYBERSALE) all weekend.
