Connie Rhea said...

I begin shopping for the next year the day after Christmas. Christmas quilting goes on all year.

Needled Mom said...

With 28 grandchildren I shop all year round. If I see something that calls their name the day after Christmas I will pick it up!

Amy's Crafty Shenanigans said...

I would like to think I will start this month but realistically it will be September.

Sandy D said...

If you call making a Christmas Tree runner starting my shopping then I have started. Any Mall shopping I usually start about the first of November.

pippirose said...

I start my Christmas shopping around December 20. Not very smart, I know. I always have good intentions on starting early, but have rarely managed yet.

Rose Braun said...

I start around the time they say order by this date to receive by Christmas. So bad I know.

Marjorie's Busy Corner said...

very nice of you.....thank you! I usually start by Sept 1st. this year I have already startd

Vicki H said...

I don't like to admit it, but I don't start until November.

Linda Thompson said...

Generally the day after, I don't do toys until the last minute to make sure the newest is released...if I do toys at all for the Grans

Paula @ Sewy Stuff said...

Every year I say I am going to start early. Every year I wait til late Nov. :-)

Heidi [Banks of Frog Creek] said...

Right after Halloween!

brownj6610 said...

I think I generally start during the Hallmark ornament premier because my daughter collects Mickey Mouse ornaments and I buy them for her stocking.

Betsy said...

Lindsey I have already started making things for nieces and granddaughter. Since my kids are grown they usually want pricier things so I wait until black friday

Trisch said...

I usually start the end of November or first part of December. I even do some of my sewing last minute. I start out with good intentions but well, you know, stuff happens.

ShirleyC said...

I have no set time to start shopping, but it usually never until closer to Christmas. If I have to order things for the grandkids, I do try to get those ordered in plenty of time for Christmas.
I make a few things so I'm already working on those.

Cindy Dahlgren said...

OK, I start my Christmas MAKING in July, so I need to start this week. EEEk, not knowing what I'm making yet for my sons.

Anita said...

I usually start in the beginning of December.

GranChris said...

I must say I shop whenever I have extra cash in my budget, Sometimes that is March or April, no heating or AC bills.

Suze said...

I start when I see the first perfect gift. I see ideas for making gifts all year round. Thanks for the giveaway.

Alesha Klein said...

How fun! Thanks for a wonderful giveaway. I usually start making a few gifts (quilting) at the start of Jan. I have all my Christmas ready and wrapped by Oct.

If it's for fabric then all year long......;o) if it's for gifts then November....thanks for the giveaway love it.....

Leslie said...

Even though I tell myself every year I'm going to start early (September or October), it usually ends up starting after Thanksgiving.

Abbigail said...

I usually get started late...sometimes too late!

apple blossom said...

I never stop Christmas shopping. I find things on sale and put them away all year long. Only way to shop and save. ;P
Thanks for the giveaway

Cal said...

As early as possible. Although it has happened that sometime in summer I saw the perfet gift on sale for a family member, bought it, stash it and come christmas time could not remember where I stored it! Ended up buying a second gift in December!
So, I like to stash gifts, but have to remember very well where I keep them!

Chiska said...

I'm always shopping for Christmas. It takes the stress away from the season for me.

Mom C said...

I'm always on the lookout but mostly I give checks so I don't really stress til Thanksgiving. Love all things Santa. Thanks.

Kate said...

I start Oct. 6 (my mom's birthday is 10/5 so I wait to see what's checked off her list) and I'm done by December 1. Then I can enjoy the last minute sewing. ;)

Afquilt said...

I'm a procrastinator... don't usually start until November at the earliest.

Fort Worth Fabric Studio said...

FWFS posting for Candace A. - I start my Christmas Shopping in January.

Joyce Carter said...

Thanks for the giveaway, Lindsey. I start my Christmas shopping the day after Thanksgiving.

sandyandcosmo said...

I start my Christmas shopping in the spring or summer when I start seeing things on sale.

Kathy H said...

I shop all year round and hope to find some fun and interesting gifts.

bairdmtn said...

I usually start mine about now! I take vacation ops urging July 4 week and when that's over, I realize that it really isn't that long until Christmas! As a matter of fact, I am already thinking about the gifts I need to start making!

Anita said...

I used to start in October before I had kids but it gets pushed to December lately. Hopefully I can get a head start this year.

lsymank said...

The first of December. slmne5@Yahoo.com. Linda Symank

Susan said...

I shop all year long.

Karen Thurn said...

I keep my eyes open for gifts all year long. But then I hide them and sometimes hide them too well and have to buy or make again.

Sheltered Stitches said...

Shopping begins when I spy something I know is a great gift.. I've already got a small pile growing in the closet and plans for LOTS of home made projects that I've already started to work on!

Mara said...

I'm kind of a last minute gal, and get stuff the last week, but I do buy a few toys when I find them on sale for the kids.

Jane S. said...

I have been known to start my Christmas shopping the week after Christmas! If there's something great on clearance I'll get it and put it in my little stash. I add to the stash all year long and then I don't have to fight the crowds come the end of the year.

Anonymous said...

I start my Christmas shopping as soon as I find something that suits someone on my list.

Cecilia said...

Usually the first of December. :-). I tend to procrastinate.

Karen Rowland said...

I'm a procrastinator too. I don't start until after Thanksgiving.

Sharon Collins said...

I have already started. My grandbabies were all born between Oct & Jan. My kids Dec & Feb. Dec baby is Christmas Eve baby.

Kathy said...

right after the last Christmas - I am always on the look out for treasures that fit someone

Anonymous said...

I want to start earlier but it's always the same every year. December! I always want to get my Xmas cards out first. I do photo cards. It's hard to get the family together for current pictures. Then I have to order them. That takes another week. By now it's usually the 10th of December. Ugh!! Maybe this is the year I can do everything sooner, or at least I will try!

Bunny Ryan said...

Actual Christmas shopping, I do in November. And that's for 13 grandchildren and 1 great. But sewing for Christmas, I start in June.

Margaret Doro said...

Sewing for Christmas I start about September and shopping about October.

gpc said...

I pick things up all year if I see something special. For instance, I have a friend named Robin who collects Robin-themed items, so I am always on the lookout for those. And I sew little projects, like pot holders, as I have time. So I guess it's Christmas all year long at my house, lol. :)

valerie boudier said...

Any time I see something suitable for a present during the year valerie.boudier@ntlworld.com

VickiT said...

Anytime during the year when there is a really good sale on something I'll pick it up for a gift for someone on my Christmas list. And sometimes if a really great sale, I'll even grab a second one. SCORE for me now. LOL

KathleenD said...

I don't have a big Christmas gift list. I usually make lots of Christmas cookies as gifts for our neighbors and friends and we go door-to-door delivering them in our Santa hats in mid-December. All our family members are adults and live in other states, so we tend to send them gift certificates. IF I shop for something specific, I usually start 1 to 2 months ahead of the occasion.

Tabitha Keener said...

I try to hunt for Christmas all year long and catch bargains. This year probably some handmade items to offset my bargains. Thanks for the giveaway!

Maree in NC ☺ said...

Every year, I want to be finished before Thanksgiving, but somehow that has never happened. I haven't bought anything yet, but I do have some ideas. ☺ Thanks a bunch for the chance to win your giveaway!

I usually start in December, but I start my Christmas "making" the end of October, and buy things for those I haven't had a chance to make anything for. sarah@forrussia.org

Early December, but every once in a while I start in November. If I'm lucky!

Actually I started fall 2013 for Christmas 2014.
I purchased some wonderful Christmas makes for last year and never got them out of their sacks. So maybe I''ll get some done for this year!
