Our Annual (issue one) has been out for a few months now and we’re so thrilled with all your excitement and enthusiasm and support for this new venture. This publication is not only a nod to the Annuals of our childhood with articles on our Mill and activity pages, but also features four glorious exclusive patterns. So we thought what better way to kick off August than with a KCAL?! The Annual pattern designers will be joining us in hosting this over in our Ravelry Group (read on for more info and KCAL rules).
It has started to get rather chilly and a little rainy at the moment - Autumn is starting to peak over the horizon, so it feels like the ideal time to whip up a few woolly accessories.
Here at John Arbon Textiles, we love Fay Dashper-Hughes' approach to design – frequently offered in both crochet and knitting versions. We are amazed and enthralled at the way she creates magic using both techniques!
Fay is not only a designer, but also host of the Crochet Circle Podcast (click to see the latest episode on YouTube or hear it on Podbean).
She is also a fantastic person - it is rare that a yarn show goes by without Fay popping round for a natter, and often with homemade cake which is a welcome gift!
We hope you are all keeping safe in these troubled times. Our online shop is still open and we will continue to ship orders until further notice. But please do be patient as we are only operating with a skeleton crew, so your order will take a little longer to ship than usual.
Thank you again for your patience and we hope our woolly wares will brighten your day a little,
