It’s December 1st, and it’s time to start thinking about presents (if you haven’t already). JP Knit & Stitch is here with crafty inspiration, whether the people on your list are makers too, or all about a final product. Here are our favorite gift ideas this week.
- We love kits, and the embroidered pendants from Red Gate Stitchery are super chic. Made of laser cut bamboo, each kit comes with everything you need to stitch up a super stylish necklace that’s colorful and nature inspired. And since you’re stitching in wood instead of fabric, it’s really easy!
- If you’re looking for a gift for a knitter, how about our JP Knit & Stitch knitting kit? It comes with everything a beginning knitter needs (and all the tools an intermediate knitter like me is always losing)! Don’t want the tools? We sell just the awesome zippered pouch, make by EnviroTote and designed by Taylor McVay, too!
- We can’t get over the cuteness of these DIY Embroidered Doll Kits from Kiriki. The bear is shown here, and we also have kittens, foxes, owls, and–of course–sloths!
- It’s another amazing item from Taylor McVay: the Cabin pattern from Blueprints for Sewing! Whip up a top for your next holiday party, then make the shift dress for your favorite stylish friend. Or get the sewer on your list the pattern and a spot in our Cabin Shift + Shirt Workshop in January! (And don’t forget to come to the Blueprints for Sewing Cabin Release Party on Friday.)
- One more kit because we can’t resist! We’ve carried Threadfollower animal kits for a long time, and Charlotte Fox is the newest kit. Once she’s sewn up, grab a bit of extra felt to make her a whole wardrobe!
- And lastly, yarn! We grabbed two of our newest and most festive arrivals. Fat & Sassy Merino, our very thickest yarn, and Kin Gin, a sparkly lace weight. Hold them together to make a super-fast, super-cute cowl, or just use them as holiday decor!

We’ve carried Coastal Knits, a cross-country collaboration of knitting patterns by designers Alana Dakos and Hannah Fettig, for a long time. We love the cozy sweaters, gorgeous accessories, and dreamy details in this book, and we are so excited to host a month long trunk show of Coastal Knits samples! This is your opportunity to try on the Rocky Coast Cardigan, see the details on the Little Oak sweater, and be inspired to make your own.
So, through the month of October, as the weather gets cool and rainy, start thinking about sweaters, and stop by the shop to see the Coastal Knits Trunk Show for yourself!

We’re still reeling from a fabulous four days celebrating the Greater Boston Yarn Crawl! It was wonderful to share the excitement of knitting season with knitters of every level and from all over Greater Boston. We got to share wine (from Streetcar) and cider (just right for the season), show off yarn from Lady Dye, Dirty Water DyeWorks, and Knit Collage, try on designs by Cheryl Kubat, and tell knitting stories with author Ann Hood.
The Greater Boston Yarn Crawl is always a kick-off event for us, so just because it’s over doesn’t mean that we’re taking it easy. We have a full slate of knitting and sewing classes (new sessions for beginning knitting classes start in just a week!) and a bunch of other fun events and workshops, too. And, yes, a few surprises. If you’d like to keep up to date on all the shop happenings, don’t forget to sign up for our email newsletter. (Just scroll down a bit; it’ll be on the left under our list of classes.)
Thanks again to everyone who came out for the Yarn Crawl, and happy knitting!
