After owning a yarn shop for nearly 9 years I thought that I knew a lot about knitting and crochet. Then a lovely friend of mine presented me with this pattern for Comet Mittens by Tanja Osswald. This very original form of crochet is totally new to me and really rather lovely. If you fancy a day of learning a new crochet technique we have two places left. It’s £20 for the day plus £3 for the pattern and you will need 100g of sock yarn and a selection of hooks from 3mm -4mm depending on your tension. It would be lovely if you could make it. x
I have finally arranged the Manfield Crafts workshops for the rest of the year. Not only will you be learning new knitting and crochet techniques with lovely projects it will also be an excellent excuse for a bit of “me time”. Have a look here 2016 Workshops and let me know if you would like to come along. As always there is enough tea and coffee to float a ship and a bottomless biscuits tin.
As part of my Epilepsy Fund Raising Day this Saturday I will also be running a Easter Felting Workshop in the afternoon from 1pm to 5pm. The workshop will be £10 of which £5 will go to the Purple Day fund. So if you would like to join us in making your very own Easter Bunny then please let me know to reserve your place.
Don’t forget that the shop will be open all day for tea, coffee and cake and all proceeds go to Epilepsy Action.
HOPE YOU CAN COME.
So I happened to be doing a bit English Paper Piecing at Knitting Club last week and was bombarded with requests to run a little workshop. If you fancy an afternoon of hand sewing then come along on Saturday 20th from 1pm-5pm and learn the basics. It’s £10 for the afternoon and you’ll need some patchwork cotton fabric. A charm pack would be great but why not use up all your bits, bobs and scraps. All paper, cotton and needles are included. Let me know if you can make it.
With the increasing competition from the internet Manfield Crafts has now ceased trading as a yarn shop. On a positive note we will still be running our knitting groups, workshops and lessons. I will still be holding stock of Rowan yarns and Knit Pro needles so if you would like to purchase any of these please do knock on the door if you see the lights on or give me a call or email before you come. I will still be offering services such as making up and blocking so please email or call to arrange these. I will also still be running Manfield Crafts online and am looking forward to exhibiting at Fibre East, Yarndale, Woolfest and the Bakewell Wool Festival. You can keep up to date with everything that is going on at Manfield Crafts via this website or Facebook page.
I would like to say a massive thank you to my loyal customers (you know who you are!). I know that the news was a bit of a shock but I am so happy that I can still keep in touch with the friends that I have made at my clubs and workshops. I’m feeling very positive about this decision and it means that I still get to design and work in a field that I love. Keep in touch everyone.
