Albany --While many of us plan to hit the malls to buy Christmas gifts,crafters are preparing to create their own.

Workers at Jo Ann's Craft shop in Albany say the hot materials this holiday are fleece for making blankets and fun fur for shawls and decorative hats. And, patterns for making elaborate purses are also popular this season

"To me, a personalized gift is better than anything in the world that you could buy for me. I put my time in, I think about the person I'm making it for. I hope they love it as much as I enjoyed making it for them," says crafter Karen Reiley.

Workers say like mall-goers, crafters usually crowd the store the days following Thanksgiving.
