Everything is going a little bit mad at the moment, My anxiety it’s of the scale at the moment over the whole situation which I am sure is the same for many, and normally when my mental health takes a knock, I tend to go in to radio silence and close myself away from the world and wait for myself to see the sunshine again. I understand that don’t help my customers at all. So, this time I am aiming to keep you all up to date. My little ones are now home from school so most of my day is spent doing fun activities and trying to make educational subjects’ fun and interesting.
So as a result of this online updates will be few and far between I am also pushing back the next shop update which I was planning for 4/4/20 so I’m going to skip April update instead I will be holding a sale on all items currently in stock, this sale will also extend to items that are made to order. Any pembrokeshire colourways items that are not currently in stock will also have a discount of up to 20% there will be a turnaround of up to 2 weeks for colourways. This sale takes effect as from today 18/3/2020 and this will continue throughout the rest of march. This is a massive sale with huge reductions. The next shop update will be June 5/5/2020. This will be a super update.
Sadly, there are no craft classes for the foreseeable future, but I don’t want my students to feel left out with no help or support. To anyone who has been coming to any of my classes recently or who are currently working on projects and need a little help or guidance please email me on email@example.com and I will do my best to help you with your projects any way I can.
Lastly everyone please stay safe, look after yourselfs and your loved ones.
love from us all from Hooks and dye.
Shop update tomorrow at 8 pm. Only a small update this month but still. Still something to shout about.
Today I have been working on the shop part of the website. so all being well hooks and dye will finally have items to sell online. I know it has taken me a long while to achieve this, and when I was close to getting it all sorted in 2018, my mental health took a turn for the worst in the beginning of 2019 and I soon realized that I had been ill for many years and had not took notice of what my mind and body was trying to tell me. sadly that resulted in a complete business stop. and this is also the reason for a lot of radio silence over the past year. so please forgive me of this.
so I am planning– all being well— fingers crossed. that I will be doing a shop launch on 2/2/2020.@ 20 hundred hours, 8pm GMT. The reason that date and not the first of February is because this is my second attempt at this ,and I feel the numbers represents this.
there will also be a giveaway coming up soon as well to promote the web page going live.
these will be taking place on my Facebook page. so keep a close eye out for that.
So the time has come where tired little people get to spend six weeks relaxing. After spending a whole year building relationships and learning new skills and just growing up. And it’s at this time of year we all just like to say thank you to the other main adult in our children’s life besides us. Yes thats it. It’s the teachers. The ones that will effect our children’s lives now, no matter how small the action.
I even now remember them special teachers that I had growing up. So we all agreed on mug of love. I had made these before for previous teachers but I had just used acrylic yarns and not put much towards it. Budget was a factor too. Also my little ones were a bit smaller and them times before it was more a thank you from me for the child care and not so much from the children.
But this year was different, they were awear and wanted to say thank you from them. So this year we really went for it and said a big thank you.
So we dyed our own wool. ” Just like mummy”. Just for our mug hugs. We then went to choose our mugs for our teachers.
buttons were hand made from the magpies eye. She has a Facebook page. She makes fantastic resin buttons she can even make clocks and all sorts of items. Check out her Facebook page. The magpie eye
These are all the little added extras I had placed in. I made some cloth make up remover pads. A bag charm or magnet and tea, coffee and hot chocolate.
The bag charms and magnets were from
tilly and muffin too.
Then for the finishing touch cello wrap to wrap up the mug which had these wonderful butterflies on them. These really were a joy to make and the huge smiles from the kids and teachers. What a amazing way to say thank you.
Now to get ready for the six weeks of fun and adventure. Wishing you all a fantastic summer. See you all on the other side
All the best
Hooks and dye.
