Notice the new look? I had my design and web expert revamp the site, not only to refresh the look, but also to improve the shopping experience. You'll find that there are now two shopping pages, arranged slightly differently, which should reduce the amount of scrolling you have to do to view the products. So there is one page for deep shades, 'Brights', and one for pastels: ' Pastels' (obviously!)
More New Pastels
You will see that I have released a further four pastels - more light shades for you to enjoy! All these are based on existing colours, but not all my mixes lend themselves to 'pastellisation', so I won't be converting the full range of brights. More shades will be released over the next few weeks.
Canterbury Area Open Day - Creative Fibres
Because of the earthquake, the open day is now going to be held in Oxford - and you can come along to meet me in person, as I will be having a stall with a range of my wools and craft on display. There will be a number of merchants and an as yet undisclosed speaker to entertain us. The day will be held at the Oxford Jaycee Rooms, Main St, on the 26th May. I look forward to seeing you there!
Well it's all done and dusted - the competition is over and I've chosen a winner - Joanne Foot of Christchurch came up with 'Pukeko"! I love it, and the colour has been very popular too.
Because of the many exceptional entries, I've also decided to award a grab bag of wool to the two runner-up, Janice Eaton with 'Phosphoresence' and Karen McNair with 'Thor's Hammer'
What a clever bunch you are! It was quite a task going through the entries and choosing the finalists. Thank you so much for taking part - I am amazed by how many entries I received.
Coming up soon: I've begun dyeing new pastel shades of some of the colourways and these will appear on the site shortly. I'll try to get a new project 'thunk up' for winter - right now I'm waiting for delivery of my new video camera, which should make taking and posting videos to the web a lot easier.
In the meantime, happy crafting!
