Donna Wolfe of is a good friend and a proud supporter of my books and yarns. She is part of the Kristin Omdahl Yarns Family of Designers and has made lots of cute things with my yarns. This week, she made a video review of “80 Handmade Gifts” book along with a demo of the Grace Bracelet here:

Cylinda Mathews of wrote a very detailed review of the book here: Review of “80 Handmade Gifts” book

And there have been several new reviews on Amazon:

A.R. wrote: “Was so excited when my book came!! The pictures are so crystal clear that my mouth was watering from the food pics!! I haven’t made anything from the book yet but I can already tell you that my favorite part is the large print!! So easy to read!! If I had to make a suggestion it would be that the book be ring bound so that it can be opened and laid flat while doing a project. Other than that, let the projects begin!!”

Another customer wrote: “I highly recommend this book. The photos are beautiful, the patterns are easy to follow, and the directions are super clear. As always, Kristin never disappoints! Thank you!”

S.C. wrote: “Love this book! Already used it several times for gifts! This will be my go to book for gift giving in the future as well! Thanks Kristin for creating such a beautiful book! Very easy to read, great font used. The page layouts make it easy to use.”
