Craft2.0 is hosting some splendiferous workshops.
However, best place to find out about it is over at the Craft2.0 blog.
Yours truly is hosting a series of ‘How to Knit Socks’ workshops, complete with stash bag, yarn, needles, pattern, and all the fun things you need.
However Yours Truly is also running late, so pop over to Craft2.0 to check out the details.
Flights of Fancy Yarn Club is up on the online shop!
It looks sold out…but it most certainly isn’t. It’s waiting for Wednesday morning…
There will be 2 releases:
15 subscriptions will be released at 9.30am, and another 15 at 8pm NZ time.
Have a great weekend everyone – i’m off to play in Sydney before coming back to dye all your yarn club goodness!
Whew…what a crazy week!
Which meant i’d completely forgot to announce – Knitsch Yarns is being stocked at Knit World!
Artisan Lace has been found in Knit World stores for quite some time, and so it was a natural progression to provide them with a selection of Knitsch Yarns colourways. It did take a bit of arm twisting (mine), but i’m pleased we’ve gone with it.
It means that anyone who has yet to fondle the gorgeous merino can, and there will be some shining brightness amongst the sock range available in stores.
With wholesale inevitably comes a good hard look at costs and pricing. Another hard decision was to nudge up our prices for both the online store and bricks and mortar shops so that we can continue to provide a high quality product. Knitsch Yarns really is a labour of love (I don’t get paid!!) but it’s all for our wonderful, inspirational customers – well, friends, really. You!
So from Monday 14 June our online shop
prices for sock yarn will be edging up to $12.95 for a 50g skein. Prices at markets and fairs will remain $12 a pop, and we will still have special offers and discounts for those on our mailing list. OH, and the Flights of Fancy Yarn Club prices will stay the same – which means even more value for money!
Like I said, we really wouldn’t be here without you wonderful people! Thanks so much for all your continued support, lovely emails and photos of WIPs and FOs.
Now head on over to the online shop to place an order before the price rise! Or, if you’re local, come along to Craft2.0
Quick yarn club update!

First shipment: 1 July
Cost (all NZ $):
No postage (for if you see me regularly) $90
AUS $110 (this includes GST, so will be a bit less than this in real terms)
ROW $120 (this includes GST, so will be a bit less than this in real terms)
AND the amazing Sue of Craft2.0 and Supervery is giving me the coolest stitch markers ever to put in at least one installation of the yarn club – hooray!
I can also confirm that each month you will receive 120 grams of yarny deliciousness 😀
And I just have to share some more beautiful things with you –
Ariane over at Falling Stitches
writes about knitting so beautifully, and takes gorgeous photos, and has the most amazing blogger background EVER. Think i’m in love. Seriously.
I work at Wanda Harland
in Petone a few days a week, and Martha is the best boss ever. Seriously. Except for one thing – she keeps teasing me with this bag
. I want it. I must have it. Seriously (Really must stop using that word). I may have to mortgage like, my camera or something to buy it, but it will be mine. One day.
Happy Mother’s day everyone!
How about a little giveaway to celebrate?
Every Knitsch Yarns order from 5pm Friday 7 May to midnight Sunday 9 May receives a free stash bag! That’s along with the free set of 5 cards that already get tucked in with your order. What a treat!
Have a wonderful weekend and look after those knitting, crafting hands of yours xx
