Thought I would do a few posts linking to some local makers and designers (I live in North Yorkshire in the UK).
Saw a page in the most recent issue of Mollie Makes which just so happens to be showcasing Yorkshire as it’s monthly county and well, I totally nicked the idea from them!
Only, I don’t need to do a different county each month, coz there’s more than enough talent in Yorkshire to last a lifetime you know?!
I have to say though, I did like the designs on the bottom right corner of page 80 of Mollie Makes (issue 79). Starry night skies with black trees silhouetted.
So, to start off the first link share we will have a look at that one! The shop’s name is Studio Factotum and the designer is based in York.
Check out this link to her shop in Etsy for a look at some gorgeous cards…
Hope you found something you like! 🙂
Just a quick post today. Was looking for some local groups on Ravelry to join and I came across this one and thought I had to share.
The group is called Yorkshire Wildlife Trust – Wool For Wildlife.
There is a link to their etsy shop which I will give you here https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/YorkshireWildlife?ref=l2-shopheader-name
They sell 50g balls of DK wool with a mixture of wool and alpaca, they are all in natural colours – no artificial dyes used. I love the colours – greys, creams, dark greys, blacks. All very autumn-ish and warm looking!
The Wildlife Trust uses a mixture of Hebridean and Charollais sheep to graze their land (or some of it) in an environmentally friendly way, and the wool from the sheep makes a little extra profit which can be put back into their conservation efforts.
So if you want to buy some very warm and snuggly looking yarn and help the environment at the same time, then definitely join the group on Ravelry (there is a code for an extra discount there too!) and have a look at their shop on etsy. And if you’re in the UK also check out the Wildlife Trust’s website and see if there is any event or something you can take part in – they do a lot of good for the environment!! 🙂
Wool + Charity + Environment = A Good Mix!!!
Just a quick post now.
I came across this website and this post about selling on Etsy and thought I would share it with you. I think it is the first in a series about selling on Etsy and looks quite good. Check it out!
Also…Black Friday and I have bought….NOTHING! YAYYY!
