New Knitting shop is Open!

At last the new shop at Broadwindsor Craft Centre is now open, and busily selling wool, needles and knitting kits to real customers. (As opposed to online customers that is!)

Let me take you on a tour…..Picture 009Lots of lovely wool of course from Woolyknit, Jillybean, Rosies Moments and Eden Cottage.

Picture 006Handmade super duper knitting bags, with lots of space for needles, and they stand up on their own too.

Picture 007Lovely British yarn knitting kits.

Picture 010Oodles of beaded needles.

Picture 008Gorgeous handmade woolly goodies.

Picture 011And, oh yes, did I mention, lots of lovely wool!

All the goodies will be going on the website in due course, (when I have finsihed ooohing and aaahing and touching stuff) but if you see anything you like in the meantime, do let me know!

Visitors, especially blog readers, very welcome!  I am based at a lovely craft centre with a good coffee shop, open 11ish to 4ish every day except Wed and Thursday.



About madebyewe

Hello, and welcome to my blog, where I talk about the ups and downs of running a crafty business, knitting and life. I learnt to knit when I was a child in the 1970s. I think my Mum taught me, though it may have been one of my Nans. Both Nans were great crafters and my Mum knitted, when she had time. My childhood was full of wearing Mum's warm and cosy handknit jumpers to school and playing with yarn by the fire, making presents for my family and clothes for my toys. When I grew up, I started a business designing children's handknitted jumpers. Now I spend some of my time desgining gardens, as well as designing knitting. The garden design business is well established; the knitting design business is just starting out. I love the rhythmic quality of knitting, the feel of woolly yarn in my hands and the way a project grows beneath my fingers. It is relaxing and productive at the same time. I especially love vintage knitted toys and the quirky simplicity of the patterns. They were often made in times of austerity, when money and supplies were short, but the desire to create something fun inspite of this, shines through. I am a supporter of the Campaign for Wool, supporting the British wool industry, and using British yarn for my kits. Where would we be without fields of fluffy sheep to admire? Baa Humbug to acrylic!
