Modern yarn craft kits for Mother's Day 2020

Struggling for present inspiration for Mother's Day?

It can be hard to think of original gift ideas for Mother's Day, and sure, who doesn't love flowers and chocolates, but wouldn't it be nice to give something with a little more individuality? One of the best gifts you can give (in our opinion) is the gift of learning, because it's the gift that keeps on giving. Where better place to start than with a craft kit, from a small independent maker.

The craft movement is strong and there are a range of delightful yarn kits for the modern crafter, for all levels of abilities.
