handcraftedgifts' Shop Announcement


See my hand-painted spindles in the Get This! section of Spring 2015 Spin-Off magazine!

In this shop you will find my Russian decorative painting and unique handspun yarns.

For centuries, Russians used folk art to decorate everyday items, to make them feel special. I feel that some of that is lost today, in our age of mass production. I want to do what my ancestors have done, to make everyday items feel special, to change the relationship that we have with the "everyday" object.

I am passionate about using only the best fleeces from sheep that are loved and well looked after. By purchasing from my shop you are helping to support the small farmers that raise rare and heritage breeds of sheep.

You can see some more of my yarn on Ravelry. My yarn brand is called Unique Handspun and my username is Handcraftedgifts.

This shop accepts Etsy Gift Cards.
