We’re getting ready and really excited for the Yarn Bombing display to start now.
In June this year we asked for your help to decorate the town this Christmas…. task was to knit or crochet 10.5 inch squares. At first we panicked thinking we had probably asked for too much (we needed hundreds of squares)…….however you have proved us wrong. We have reached our target and more.
As we speak we are joining them together to make tree blankets.
These will go on display every day until December 20th, so please pop down and have a look.
A huge thank you to everyone that has donated their time and skills.
The kids have been busy too this week. Christmas gnomes are in the process of being made, Christmas stockings being cut, gifts are being planned and more bunting was finished …… all in all a very successful and enjoyable week.
We have also opened up the diary for the birthday parties for next year. So if your child would like a creative party please take a look at the website for more details.
On Wednesday evening we had a full class for our Free Motion Workshop. This workshop is designed for beginners and is a great chance to join others and have fun…
And that spurred me on to get creating……pencil to stitch.
That’s it for this week…….I’ll catch up with you next week.
Since the Sewing Studio opened upstairs in February this year we have been able to offer a range of workshops ranging from beginners sewing to quilting, drawing with a sewing machine to textile arts, bunting to cushions and of course the knicker party.
Its been an amazing to see so much creativity. So it’s time to start thinking about next year…
Back to this year though and still plenty happening….
The kids are still preparing for Christmas and so far they have produced over 30 metres of bunting between them…….
And a huge achievement for one of my groups that have designed and made their own patterns for a mermaid tail. They have been left to their own devices on this project …..I just supervised.
We had our wool delivered at last yesterday which has been a huge relief after it seems to taken a life time to arrive….
We have stocked up on the essentials but have also had a couple of new contenders arrive which are new to the Stylecraft range.
Firstly their new sock yarn ..Head Over Heals.
And then it was time to unpack to beautiful new Chunky Tweed along with the patterns ….
And a few more patterns for good measure ….
Our new vouchers have arrived …..perfect for Christmas gifts.
This week I’ve been doodling and thread painting this week….. it’s nice to hand stitch for a change.
And on that note a have two spaces left on the Free Motion Embroidery class….contact me to book.
That the lot for this week, have a great bonfire night…..stay safe.
