Self-isolation has brought out the maker in many of us. From sourdough bread to knitting, weaving to woodworking, people are exploring their creative sides and, in many cases, finding success. Unfortunately, some of us have discovered through trial and error that we are not makers.
It’s still possible, however, to fulfill your gift-giving needs with authentic, handmade products from people who were makers long before a pandemic rearranged our world. Just in time to help you check off your holiday shopping list, here are seven of our favorite regional makers. Shop in person or online; either way, you’ll find a great selection of gifts.
