Poplar Gifts launched in January 2015 as a mother and daughter team, with a target of creating an item a week, and attending a Spring and Christmas Fete
The idea sprang from a visit to a school Christmas fair. The range of craft and skills on show started us thinking that we could also ‘have a go’. Knitting and Crochet run in the family as skills practised by both grandmothers and a great-great aunt too. From knitting dolls clothes, crocheting ‘new baby’ gifts and creating our own Christmas cards for over ten years, we have always enjoyed craft.
Over 300 different items have been created from patterns and imagination. These are generally grouped as Accessories, Bags & Purses, Chocolate Covers, Clothing, Cushions, Decoration, Key Rings, Mobiles, and Toys. There are favourites, with the most popular item seeming to be the knitted Koala, though the crocheted Christmas Pudding People have been a big hit at Christmas.
