As some of you have probably noticed I have been a bit quieter than usual this month. That’s because I have been squirreling away in the background getting our latest project off the ground!
This one is a bit of a double whammy!
NEW YARN AND ACCESSORIES STORE!
I decided to focus my blog and store on Yarn from the amazing suppliers we have here in the UK! We will be starting off with 4 brands and hopefully expanding month on month.
I have chosen to start with the amazing West Yorkshire spinners Bo peep luxury baby range
Isle Yarns amazing Dorest wool in DK
Erika Knights beautifully soft gossypium cotton
and Cygnet yarns perfect for winter seriously chunky range!
I felt this gave everyone a nice selection of yarns to choose from to start with, with the plan to add more brands in the up coming months, first on the list will be Stylecraft, The Fibre Co, and few more smaller suppliers.
In addition to that we will be stocking a huge range of accessories!
I am very pleased to support the Norfolk based family run branch of HiyaHiya Europe and I will be stocking the full HiyaHiya accessories range
I am also launching my own Beyond The Square brand of accessories and tools which will have a range of 10 + items including, Crochet hooks, Circular needles, Tunisian hooks and much more, but these are all kept under wraps until launch!
In addition to this, I will be writing a new pattern for every range I stock! These will be offered at huge discounts if you by the yarn from us, and maybe even free! The 3 patterns being released at launch will be The Luke Hat, a Fair Isle chunky knit bobble hat to get you ready for winter, The Narcissus Cowl a knitted lace cowl perfect for the colder evenings and The Fan Baby Blanket, a Tunisian crochet pattern, ideal of fiddly fingers with a great texture to keep little ones engaged.
Not only is Beyond The Square championing British Suppliers I am also opening the doors to the Hand dyed yarn community. As you have probably seen in the last few weeks I put a post out on Facebook and Instagram calling all small hand dyers, and well this is what it was for. I am giving other small business owners an alternative marketplace to sell their hand dyed yarns and other Crochet/Knitting accessories, at a fraction of the price of sites like Etsy, Ebay and Amazon.
So far I have had an amazing amount of interest with a few fantastic business lined up to join us, these will be announced as and when the stock is ready to go live on the site!
If you would like some more info on joining us have a look at our sellers information page, that tells you all you need to know!
Finally and Most Importantly 10% off
Every one who is sign up to and signs up to our newsletter before the 4th of September, the Launch date, will receive a 10% off coupon for their first order! I am also delighted to offer free UK shipping on orders over £30 and free international Shipping on orders over £50.
Thank you all for your ongoing support and I hope you all like and enjoy using my shop moving forward. Please feel free to comment suggestions of brands you would like to see in the future
