Saturday Spring Workshop

April 23, 2014


Due to popular demand we have slightly changed our Saturday workshop this weekend.  I think the sun has gone to our heads and everyone wants to be in the garden or bring it inside.  Bring your stash and we’ll have loads of patterns, beads and buttons available to inspire you to make a posy, a spring wreath, an Attic 24 Birdy, a pretty jam jar cover or anything to bring a bit of colour in to your home.  It’s £10 for the afternoon.  Knitters and Crocheters welcome.

Knit A Long for Spring

Knit Along week 1

Well Spring has definitely sprung at Manfield Crafts and as usual it’s all about the colour.  We have been eagerly awaiting the fabulous Pure Wool Worsted collection from Rowan and look what arrived during the week.  From this vast range we will be stocking 18 colours all carefully chosen so you can Knit Along with the FREE Martin Storey Rowan Blanket.  Each week there will be a new square using different techniques and all supported on the Rowan website.  All the colours are now available from HERE from Manfield Crafts so get clicking. x



Easter Chickens

April 1, 2014

Esther Ernie Enid


I don’t know about you but with Easter fast approaching I could do with a nice relaxing day just sitting knitting at Manfield Crafts and creating the Rowan Esther Ernie and Enid Chickens.  Come along this Saturday and you can do just that.  We’ve put together a kit of Rowan Pure Wool DK in Easter colours so it couldn’t be easier.  It’s £5 from 10am-5pm and as much tea, coffee and biscuits as you muster (oh and bring your lunch).  If you fancy just the afternoon then come along at 1pm.  Let us know if you are coming and we’ll make you up a kit.  See you there. Emma. x

Busy, busy, busy

We’ve had a very busy few weeks  with lots of deliveries and busy, busy knitting clubs.  

Sirdar’s new Summer yarn, Soukie had been a massive hit.  It’s a great price at £2.99 and has great pattern support.   The Rowan Chenille also arrived and my mind is popping with ideas  for that.  The colours are fabulous and work so well together.

Inspiration Knits are also allowing us to stock their patterns.  I’ve already finished a Knit Night and started a Stay Awhile and have Song of the Sea next on my list.   Such well written patterns with a little sparkle of beads


We are also looking forward to seeing Suzie Johnson next Saturday for a fun workshop knitting Erin’s Head.  If you would like to come along we still have a few places available and, I promise, it will be a day full of laughter.

LASTLY.  Check Manfield Crafts out on Facebook.  We have lots of posts, comments and inspiration from our lovely customers.

Spring is in the air.

Jug Cover


So I came across these most gorgeous beads and just had to find a project to use them.  I remembered that my Grandma always had a Maltese crochet cover over her glass of water by her bed and this inspired me to get my hook out.  Once again, which colour, which colour, aw just use all of them.  

So for this week’s Saturday Afternoon Workshop we will be making these pretty crochet jug and glass covers.   You can choose one of these three colour combination but personally I think the blue and white are going to be a winner.  We start at 1pm so if you fancy it then give me a call.  

I’ll be putting the kits for sale on line very soon so keep an eye on the blog.  x

Happy New Year. Lets Get Busy.

Short Row Pin Cushion

Happy New Year Everyone.  

After a fabulous break we’ve opened the shop to 2014 and are raring to go.  First job on the agenda was arranging workshops.  So many ideas.  We are so lucky that Jane Crowfoot, Suzie Johnson and Debbie Abrahams squeeze us into their busy schedules to come to Manfield Crafts.  Also our Saturday afternoon workshops were so popular last year we’ve planed a range of fun projects that, hopefully, include lots of new techniques and ideas for both knitting and crochet.  

On our first workshop on Saturday 18th January we will be making this pretty pin cushions.  The project includes short row shaping, intarsia and lace work.  Fancy it ? Then drop us a line and book a place.

Keep an eye on our WORKSHOP AND EVENTS  as we will be updating us all through the year.  Looking forward to 2014. xxxx
