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
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.
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
It’s been a very busy month so many apologies for the lack of activity on the Manfield blog. This Saturday we are looking forward to seeing, the excellent teacher, Michele Marshal and learning everything there is to know about Toe Up Sock knitting. The day runs from 10am to 4pm and is just £30. If you fancy a lovely day with lovely company then drop us a line to book a place.
Promise to update more regularly from now.
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
Hi Everyone. Following the success of our Alpaca Balls kits last year we have designed our new Alpaca Hearts to coordinate. Each kit contains 2 skeins of Artesano Alpaca DK, 3 pretty heart buttons and 3 ribbons but I bet you could knit maybe 6-7 hearts in total. Great for a teacher gift or a secret Santa. Available from the shop the kits are £13 and if you give me a call I can send them out right away. I’ve got some more Christmas ideas so keep an eye on the site and Facebook and I’ll be squeezing in one more project before the big day. x
person is the designer from Boo-Biloo. Check out her website, it’s really lovely. Lucky us, her pattern are now available from her website or from Manfield Crafts. She has also agreed to allow us to put together kits using her patterns and Rowan Cotton Glace. Each kit is £11.99 and contains enough yarn, ribbon and pom poms to make three Santa Claus, Snowmen or Reindeer. Now available from the shop so give us a call (01933 314920) or drop by and say hello.
