We're not just good for yarn

March 16, 2010

Wow, what a couple of weeks! We've been completely overwhelmed by all the good wishes from our lovely new customers. Thank you so much to everyone who has come in (some of you many times) and spent some time with us.

We have lots of new things in stock. Brittany needles have come in and virtually gone again - they've been so popular with SW London knitters. I wanted to let you know about some of the other things that we have in stock ... we're not just for knitters.

We've loads of haberdashery including beautiful VV Rouleaux ribbons - from classic satins and velvets to giant bobbles and wired organza. Clothkits have brought squeals of delight from those who remember wearing them as well as those who remember making them and there is a wholenew generation out there about to get kitted up in their designs.

Clothkits also have some Liberty print bias binding that has been a real favourite as well as giant ric rac... what couldn't be improved by giant ric rac?

Kid's gifts from Buttonbag and Blueberry Park are very popular and we're in the process of putting together Mrs Moon kid's kits for inspired Christmas presents. Also Mrs Moon kid's kits for inspired Christmas presents. Also for smaller kids (well, babies) we've got lots of Anne-Claire Petit toys and have treated ourselves to the rather luxurious crocheted Bird Cage... see our window....

We had a lovely visit from Jane Brocket yesterday. We love her books and blog and hope that she liked our little bit of St Margarets heaven.

We've been busy busy busy over the last few weeks so apologies for the silence... Our online shop is nearly ready to go live so we've got a few hectic weeks ahead trying to upload all our stock so that we can start to ship around the country and world...! Lots of lovely new things have appeared with new shades in Spud & Chloe and Blue Sky, Louisa Harding's gorgeous Mulberry silk and latest Chinoiserie patterns, sock yarns, kits and loads more besides. Do pop by if you haven't been in for a while .. if you get in quick you might manage to get your hands on some lovely knitted bunnies and chicks with cream eggs inside that have been knitted for the Shooting Star Hospice in Hampton... we're on our second batch so hurry if you want to get some. We've got lots of new classes planned and up and running. Lovely Lydia is braving the world of teaching children and has designed some beautiful felt bunnies, chickens, cats and spiders (?!) for kids classes on Saturday 20th March and Saturday 3rd April... more to follow.. great for children's parties...! We've also got lots of beginners knitting and crochet classes in the coming weeks plus sock knitting courses, and workshops in colourwork, lace and cable knitting. Dates of classes are available in the shop or email [email protected] and we'll be happy to let you know what's going on when.
