With the first month of the year over – thank goodness it felt like it would never end!! – here at ERNI HQ we are looking forward to the rest of the year and what it could bring and, more importantly, what we could bring to you, our lovely crafty family.
Well as you can imagine the tea and coffee was brought out and the creative juices started to flow. We have the buds of ideas. Plus the seeds for a few other projects that we are really excited. So please stay tuned to both our website and Facebook pages for more on that. As per usual we will be dropping a few hints and the shop will also be full of ideas to keep you going.
But back to now.
Traditionally, February is the month of love with Valentine’s Day coming and we are no different. With Flowers, Fabric and Yarn we are sure to have everything that you love and more.
We will of course have all your floral needs taken care of for Valentine’s Day. So if you wish to be showered with roses this year, drop the hint that Elizabeth Rose NI will be on hand to take the stress out of ordering the bouquet of your dreams.
In store, our 2 products of the Month for February are sure to make you fall in love too – Sirdar Colour Wheel Yarn and Freedom Fabrics new Floral range.
Freedom Fabrics are all 100% cotton and the three floral combinations in the new ranges will compliment most colour schemes.
The Oriental Floral range shows the beauty of the Far East and takes you away on a mystical adventure.
The Arts and Crafts Floral range shows the simple patterns and shapes that made the 1920’s and 1930’s such a rich era for Home crafts and show that these classic styles have stayed the test of time.
The last part of the new range is Heritage Floral and true to it’s name taking us back in time to the Baroque period.
All three sections of this range work well together and with several colours in each range the possibilities are endless.
Call into the shop and see one of the quilts already made up in this range and get the feel for this fantastic range. It really is a stunning take on the humble flower.
The fabric in the range, ranges from £6 – £8 per metre.
This product really is fab! I am hooked. The ball is 150gm weight which is perfect for those quick projects like a scarf, shawl or hat and gloves. Which is great because the ball of wool comes with the pattern in the ball band for a scarf with at least a dozen patterns sold separately as well there is plenty for you to knit up.
But this is were I am hooked – they do crochet patterns too.
One ball of wool, either a hook or a pair of needles and one finished product. Absolutely perfect for a short month and a quick project. I plan to take a ball and a hook away with me for holidays and lie by the pool and be productive. I plan too, I may not.
Each ball is £9.99 and both the Summer 2017 and Spring 2018 colour ranges are available in store today.
Keep a look out on line here for more products of the month coming with inspirations and as hinted a few workshops to keep you busy.
