January – Newsletter/Blog
OK, here we go, my first ever Newsletter/Blog (this could take a while especially as I have lost my first draft!) I think that once you commit your thoughts to paper that’s it they are off your mind, now I just can’t remember what I wrote!!
Several people (especially my Son Gareth) have been telling me I need to get ‘with it’ and write a blog so this newsletter can double up as my first blog (a bit of a cheat I know) and then hopefully I may ‘blog’ about once a week and issue a newsletter every couple of months (or once a month if I have time!!) (you will have to get used to my exclamation marks and brackets, I definitely over use them!!!!!!!!!).
Now I had better get some news into this Newsletter. I have some great yarns in my sale at the moment:
Wendy Aran with Wool 400g Was £10.40 now £7.99
Wendy Mode DK 50gm Was £2.45 now £1.95
Wendy Hatti Was £6.30 now £4.75
Twilleys Mist DK 50gm now £1.99
Learner kits Was £5.00 now £3.75
And some great book titles greatly reduced
Twilleys Freedom Wool – This is a super chunky weight 100% wool and is great for felting (a bag will be in progress very shortly) I have never done this before and I am really looking forward to the felting part.
ARRIVING VERY SOON
New Cross-stitch kits from DMC featuring Tatty Teddy and ‘Say it with Cross-stitch
IN THE PIPE LINE
Kingcole Opium Pallette – building on the tremendous success of their Opium they have now brought out a varigated version with some beautiful colour blends and some fantastic new patterns
Kingcole Shine – some great new colours and patterns this year
Kingcole Big Value Aran – 100% Acrylic with a really lovely soft handle
I have also seen a fantastic new summer yarn from Wendy which is a blend of cotton and silk with a gorgeous marled effect (this yarn will be released later in the spring)
All of the above will be gradually filtering into the shop over the next few months!!
Next month I will be attending the Knit & Stitch Trade Show in Birmingham to seek out new and wonderful products for Owl Tree Crafts and all my fantastic customers (and me of course).
I have added a few lines in the Haberdashery Department including grosgrain ribbon, cotton bias binding, hemming web and Taylors Chalk. I also have a selection of Tartan Ribbons for all of you who celebrate Burns Night!
Kumihimo is still going down a storm and I thought I would let you know S-Lon Thread and the big eye needles are now on their way to Owl Tree Crafts.
Signing off now to get on with some knitting (what a hardship!) Hopefully I will add some photo’s next time.
Look forward to seeing you soon!
