For many people, holiday gift shopping is an enjoyable experience. Thanks to the Internet, many of the hurdles traditionally associated with holiday shopping, including long lines at the mall and tireless searches for the perfect parking space, are a thing of the past.

It seems, however, there's always that one pesky loved one who is nearly impossible to shop for, both online and off — the one who appears to have everything or insists she wants nothing at all. Such family members and friends often prove puzzling for gift buyers at every special occasion.

Enter: stitch'T, the company that creates quilts, duvets, pillows, and more from people's prized collection of t-shirts. This holiday season, thanks to the team at stitch'T, shoppers can give that hard-to-shop-for person a thoughtful gift he or she almost certainly doesn't already have by turning their old t-shirts into a useful and creative present. And as an added bonus, they'll get the gift of clutter-free closets and tidy drawers. For those living in cramped quarters, the quickly approaching winter season may just be the opportune time for an early spring cleaning!

A tribute to two American icons, stitch'T products blend the rich history of traditional quilting with a contemporary classic: the t-shirt. Inspired both by a desire to clear their closets of clutter and by their passion for preservation and design, the founders of stitch'T started by creating one-of-a-kind, handmade compositions from authentic vintage tshirts.

"stitch'T was created as a clever solution to a common problem: too many t-shirts amassed over the years, and not enough space to contain them," said Jason Friedman, the company's founder and owner. "We are thrilled to provide this special service to our customers by giving new life to old t-shirts and preserving memories from their personal histories." stitch'T invites customers — gift givers and gift recipients, alike — to turn their own collection of treasured t-shirts and special memories into custom keepsakes for all occasions. This clever concept makes the ideal gift for that husband, wife, child, sibling, girlfriend, or boyfriend who simply won't give up their beloved tshirts even though they might be long past wearable.

"All my old t-shirts were hidden away in drawers, and I couldn't wear them any more but I also couldn't bear to throw them out," said one satisfied stitch'T customer. "Each t-shirt tells a story, each one is a part of my life. My stitch'T quilt makes me laugh and remember — and that's the best part."

Adding to their aesthetic appeal, stitch'T designs also take all the work out of the holiday shopper's hands. Customers simply send in their t-shirts and wait for the finished product to arrive. Additionally, they can personalize these custom keepsakes by selecting color, size and layout — ensuring each gift is as unique as the person receiving it.
