• Happy Anniversary

    Posted by Catherine Tough

    Textile terminology is woven into our everyday language and sayings, I thought it was interesting how cotton and wool are used to represent 2nd and 7th wedding anniversaries.

    Cotton is made from many threads and symbolises the longer you are married the more your life is intertwined.  As a second-year anniversary gift you could go all matchy with his and hers Flamingo socks.

    2nd anniversary gifts

    Wool and copper might seem like an odd combination to celebrate seven years of marriage but they are chosen for their ability to conduct heat. After seven years together your marriage should be seen as warm and comforting so choose gifts based on wool or copper to recognise this.

    Here are our top seven woolly gifts

  • Craft Your Own...

    Posted by Catherine Tough

    March sees the launch of our exciting new studio workshops and one-to-one design and knit classes.

    We are starting with a craft your own chick class on the 18th of March, giving you the chance to create a one-off lavender filled chick at Catherine's studio.  With an amazing selection of soft lambswool fabrics and haberdashery to choose from it should be great fun.

    If you have a more challenging project in mind we are now offering one-to-one classes, where you can design and make your own products.  The lovely Ragnhild spent a couple of half days with us recently and made a bespoke dragonfly cushion and a scarf for her husband.

    Here's what she had to say about her time with us!

    "I took a one to one design and knit class with Catherine and Chloe. I designed my own dragonfly pattern and made two cushions and a scarf.  They showed me the whole process from designing, knitting, felting and sewing.  It was an intensive course with help at hand at all times and a friendly atmosphere.  If you want to learn from professionals I really want to recommend a course by them.  Thank you so much for a lovely time at your studio! The cushions has found their place in our sofa…and the scarf was so soft."
