Well it has arrived; Christmas 2018 launched this morning at midnight. For a first collection it’s small, but loved. We’ve already taken orders for kids Santa hats and are excited that we’ve teamed with Illustries who are stocking our hats on their website and Not On The High Street. I often need to remind myself that The Chunky Needle only opened shop eight months ago and every day that turns over is a new learning experience on what to do (and not do) in the year ahead. I definitely know that Christmas needs planning months ahead. As soon as January rolls over, planning for 2019 needs to take shape. There are so many things I want to make and create but time just got the better of me this year. With that said, the goodies on offer I think are lovely and festive.
The days keep ticking over and I’m busier than ever prepping for Stonor Park. I’m nervous, not going to lie. I had three dreams about it last night and everything always goes wrong in each of them. I’m terrified I’m going to forget something vital and won’t be able to reach it. I’m travelling two hours from home for this show and won’t have any family support until the last two days of the show! Yikes! I’ll be able to take a super deep breath come Monday November 26th - I can’t wait!
I held two great workshops last week as well. Inside Out in Cheltenham and Craft Coop in Maidenhead on Saturday. Beautiful cushions and blankets were made, I was super thrilled with the outcomes.
The Chunky Needle has so many workshops coming up, so do make sure you keep an eye on our Events page to make sure you don’t miss out on an opportunity coming to your region.
So there you have it. I hope you’ll enjoy the Christmas collection. Don’t delay on Christmas orders, the last day to order wool in time for Christmas delivery is 10th December. Santa is on his way!
Have a good week everyone.
