So, we’ve got great news.  Our IT guy has surprised us and is updating our website!  Wahooo!!!  But that means for a few days, our website is not functional.  What does this mean for you?  It means you’re gonna have to come in to Crimson Tate, downtown Indianapolis to pick up these amazing goods!  If that’s not an option, feel free to call us and we can place your order over the phone.  It’s so old school!  I love it!!!

Here are the first six days of our gift giving guide:

Day One


It’s Day One of Crimson Tate’s Fireside Holiday Gift Guide. Can you believe it?! It’s like Oprah’s favorite things, only Heather’s!! From now until Santa arrives, we’ll be sharing our best gift ideas for allllllll of the sewy loved ones in your life. You’ll make them sing with glee, laugh, cry, etc. when you shower them with all of the awesome prezzies we’ve recommended.

Today’s gift? The perfect stocking stuffer or tree ornament… it’s a gorgeous spool of Aurifil thread. Choose a large 1400-yd spool (or two, or seven) in a variety of beautiful colors. 100% Cotton. 100% Lovely. We’ll send it ready to be hung with care. #aurifilament

Day Two


Well by golly-sparkle-jolly-twinkle-jingley, you’ve landed on Crimson Tate’s Fireside Holiday Gift Guide!! Each day leading up to Santa’s big day, we are showcasing our very favorite things (just like Oprah), and it’s Day Two! Did you catch yesterday’s cutie-tootie Aurifil ornaments?!

In keeping with the tree theme, today’s perfect prezzie for your favorite quilter is the O’ Christmas Tree Quilt Kit. We’ve kitted this beloved quilt pattern designed by our pal, local gal Amanda Castor. It’s a holly jolly feel-good project that can hang over the mantle of your toasty fireplace, literally putting the tree topper on your holiday decor!! #ochristmastree

Day Three


Day Three of the Crimson Tate Fireside Holiday Gift Guide!! For the next few weeks, we’ll be sharing our best gift ideas for the sewy people in your life. You’ll make them sing with glee, laugh, cry, etc. when you surprise them with any of the awesome prezzies we’ve curated.

The third gift selection is a lil’ combo pack: the awesome Clutched Pattern by May Chappell and the corresponding Metal Clutch Frames. It’s a quick project with a clean finish, and doubles as a gift for a sewist in need of a small project, or once it’s sewn, a great little handmade present for your bestie. We have the frames in Nickel and Gunmetal. Just add a few fat quarters (Rifle Paper, anyone?) and a hunk of fusible fleece! Then put a bow on it! #putabowonit
