Welcome to the Blog!
I hope you enjoy my musings on yarn, design, life in general - and cats of course!!
I hope everyone who celebrates it enjoyed a good Christmas and like us are looking forward to a New Year. For Watercolours and Lace, it also means a new season of yarn events and we'll be busy travelling around the country again in 2015.
Our first event will be Waltham Abbey Wool Show on Sunday 18 January - a nice one-day show to kick off the New Year. We had a great day here in 2014, so really looking forward to it. Our range has expanded hugely since then, so if you came last time you'll see a big difference in what we have on display.
Several of the events we'll visit in 2015 are repeats of 2014 shows, but there are a couple of new ones booked - Edinburgh Yarn Festival in mid-March (we love Scotland, and this will be our first yarnie visit) and p-LUSH (like Crufts for alpacas!) in Coventry at the end of March.
Among new products for 2015 we're offering the first in a series of quarterly Yarn Clubs. Subscriptions for "Passion for Purple" are now available - for the next three months we'll be sending out skeins of exclusive club yarns in varying shades of purple in beautiful fibre blends from our lace and 4-ply ranges. More details here.
We're also continuing to add to our yarn range and hope to include a number of limited edition yarns in 2015 - sometimes we can only obtain a few kilos of something that isn't repeatable but we don't want our customers to miss out, so these will be listed in the webstore in due course.
In the meantime, we hope you have a wonderful New Year and that 2015 brings you peace, good health and good company - and lots of time for knitting and crochet, of course!!
