Good tidings, friends! Sometimes Monday can sneak up on us, so I thought it would be fun to start the week off with an introduction to our Holiday Gift Guide sponsors. Nothing like a little eye candy ;) Have you met our sponsors yet? They are a wonderful bunch of artisans — mostly handmade, and their wares are truly great for gift giving. I love sharing shops with you that allow you to gift those dear to you with something of superb quality and uniqueness. Some of the below sponsors we’ve worked with before, but many are new to the Gussy Sews community. I’m excited for you to browse the shops that are in our 2013 Holiday Gift Guide :) Be sure to bookmark this post so you can refer to it throughout the upcoming holiday season. xo
