The Dream Weaver Top Ten
Our Best Selling Products of 2011

Last week we tallied our best-selling projects of 2011. This week we present our best-selling products.

Here they are! The Top 10 products of 2011. These are the products most purchased by Dream Weaver knitters, crocheters and crafters this past year. These stylish adornments, tools-of-the-trade, and yarns are your favorites.

10. Practical, portable, and the perfect traveling companion, The Knit Kit holds all your essential notions in a cute little compact case, and it is TSA approved. Included in this handy compact are a tape measure, stitch counter, thread cutter, scissors, crochet hook, stitch holders, a darning needle, and tip protectors. That's a lot of goodies!
9. Bring on the beads! Artyarns Beaded Pearl with Sequins is 100% silk embellished with a silk strand that carries gold or silver glass beads and sequins. This is glitter. This is glamour. This is luxury knitting. And this is what makes spending hours creating by hand worth every minute.
8. Block to perfection, store with ease. Block n Roll makes your beautiful projects look even better. The generous surface area of Block n Roll can accommodate projects of many sizes for knitting, crochet, quilting, sewing, needlepoint, cross stitch, and even scrapbooking. Projects can be pinned directly to the surface of the mat, and the Teflon coated surface is heat and water resistant.
7. This past year, knitters treated themselves to Skacel’s Addi Click Interchangeable Needles in Bamboo, Lace, and the original Turbos. These sets include a range of needle sizes and cord lengths, conveniently stored in a toteable case. Knitting doesn’t get better than this!
6. Puffin Notions, including Gauge Checks, a Magnetic Pattern Keeper and Ruler, Scissor Fobs and Stitch Marker Sets, are as functional as they are fanciful. Featuring laser-cut wood embellished with handcrafted metal art, these pieces are pretty and practical additions to the knitting bag.
5. Shepherd's Wool is a luxurious handknitting yarn. It is made from the softest sheep's wool, lovingly dyed in brilliant colors. It is perfect for heirloom projects. This yarn felts beautifully (including white), and is recommended by Nora Bellows of Noni for all her patterns calling for worsted weight feltable yarn.
4. Crafted in France, Sajou Scissors are the crème-de-la-crème. They are the finest luxury scissors you will find anywhere, carefully hand-crafted in small workshops. The quality of Sajou Scissors is unsurpassed.
3. Sooner or later every knitter needs to fix a stitch, and Dream Weaver knitters are ready! Fix-a-Stitch is easy for both beginning and advanced knitters to use. Knit and Purl repairs from the front of a garter stitch fabric and seed stitch corrections are simple. Small and light, Fix-a-Stitch parks on your work, and can be used as a cable needle too! Three sizes are included in each package.
2. JUL Purse Handles make hand-crafting purses and totes a truly artistic endeavor. JUL’s hardware finishes a bag like no other purse hardware on the market, and crafters choose JUL to add polish and style to their handmade creations.

And – drum roll . . .
1. Our Number 1, best-selling product of 2011 is the Atenti Overnighter! Featuring exciting blends of color, texture, and patterns, Atenti's creators, natives of Buenos Aires, branded their bags Atenti. "Atenti" is slang in Argentina for "attention," and that is exactly what these unique and imaginative bags command. This mega bag is the most popular product of the year.

We are thrilled that we were able to offer these incredible products to you this year, and we thank you for making them our Top 10. Look for amazing new products coming your way in 2012. And thank you for shopping

Happy Holidays!
Craft Merry and Bright,
