Winter has arrived
I hope this post finds everyone well and not too battered after the storms. Ophelia and Brian certainly shook a few things up and the children enjoyed a couple of days off. Now with them out of the way, you can tell that the cold weather has definitely set in and this crafter’s mind has turned to what crafty things we can do sitting in front of the fire.
To help you with that our new knitting and crocheting patterns and their yarns have arrived in and this year’s winter colours are super rich and almost look like jewels in a sea of misty grey and green.
Hayfield’s new Spirit range is just that – rich and colourful but soft to the touch. This self striping variegated yarn is easy to knit into a variety of items and the colour range is sure to break up the sea of black and grey that seems to descend at this time of year.
However if yarn crafts are not your thing and you prefer to be at the sewing machine, do not worry we have you sorted too. Our Christmas fabrics continue to arrive in and this year it sees a much more muted palette but still based on the traditional reds and greens. As you would expect from us at Elizabeth Rose NI, our fabrics are all 100% cotton and come in an extensive range of colours and designs. The Nutcracker series though is my personal favourite.
Our Autumn/Winter workshops are also in full swing with great craic had at both our Sock Knitting Masterclasses and Quilting days. and the next ones for your calendar are our Christmas Wreath
and Christmas Table decoration workshops.
In these Charlene will be leading you through how to make and creation fit for your front door or table and also how to keep them looking fabulous throughout the Christmas period.
Places are limited for these workshops so book early to avoid disappointment. http://www.elizabethroseni.com/product/christmas-wreath-workshop/ and http://www.elizabethroseni.com/product/christmas-table-arragement/ will take you to the website shop to book or alternatively call into the shop and book in person.
As always we look forward to seeing you soon and keep an eye out on our Facebook and Instagram pages for all our new fabrics, yarns and more.
