Amaranth Designs  - December Newsletter/Blog

With American Thanksgiving over, it looks like the holiday season is in full swing. We’ve made it through Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and Christmas is in sight. Are you ready?

If you’re still shopping, I offer gift cards—in paper format if you want to have something to tuck into the card, or online (perfect for staying safe and treating those loved ones who live further afield). For a paper gift card, just send me a message and we’ll arrange all the details. You can grab the online versions any time, available on my website in $50 denominations. These are delivered by email, so if the shopping days slip by you, I’ve got you covered right up to Christmas Day.

For those who are here for their own holiday treats, I have you covered too!

This holiday season we have even more reason to keep our fashion simple—but simple doesn’t have to mean boring! I always design clothes to work in a variety of settings, so my shop is full of pieces that will work for virtual holiday parties and a cozy Christmas morning with your family around the tree.

Usually at this time of year, I am constructing samples and preparing for a photo shoot for the next fall and holiday season, but right now I am in the middle of a deep dive into comfortable designs that are both easy to wear and easy to take care of. I suppose that applies to most of my designs, but it feels especially important as we head into this winter season to make sure getting dressed and looking great is as easy as possible.

One of the new things this fall (it’s not officially winter until December 21!) is small batches of Christmas sweaters. I have several designs in varying degrees of festivity, from a fully decked-out tree to simple pine print sleeves. You can even make sure you’re covered for Poinsettia Day on December 12 without having to worry about keeping it watered!

  

Maybe you like to layer so much you can’t commit to a whole sweater. Then I’ve got you covered with three short-sleeved tops in subtle Christmas prints. I used a super soft rib-knit to make a top and a longer tunic, so you’ve got the choice of hemline without sacrificing comfort. Plus, a cap sleeve top in a festive French Terry that’s perfect on its own or under a cardigan.

 

If you want to avoid outright Christmas prints, I’ve also got loads of tunics and dresses that combine stylish, comfy, cozy, and convertible. You might buy them for Christmas, but they will work all year! For those who like the raglan style of the holiday sweaters, there’s a gorgeous navy tunic with mustard leaves on the sleeves. If your leggings don’t have pockets, the colour-sleeve tunic has you covered, and for those who want to keep it neutral, there’s a grey heart-sleeve dress that works whenever, wherever!

  

Whether you’re treating yourself or giving the gift of comfort and style, I appreciate your support. As a small business owner, every order means so much to me, and I can’t help but feel the celebration of the season with every package I prepare for the best customers on the prairies.

I’m wishing you and yours a safe and healthy holiday, and I look forward to what the new year brings us all. (I think…)

It's important to me that Amaranth Designs reduce its environmental impact wherever possible. In celebration of Earth Day later this month, I thought I should share the three main ways I do that in my business.

Let’s start with price: Most people assume custom design is outrageously expensive, but it’s often the same price as buying a mediocre garment off the rack and then altering it. Sure, you can make that work, but why not spend your money on something that is made for you with care, dedication, and detail at every step?
