Spring & Summer | Design & Dream

Posted on - 26/04/2021

It is exciting to be creating a Blog about looking forward through Spring to Summer, rather than the dreaded COVID.

As we move ahead to May and ability to be more out and about, small spring and summer projects are great to have in the pocket. Boho Crochet, or light tops and jackets in bright and fresh colours, as well as small designs for summer babies are perfect to fit the season.

Bessie May creation is a lovely crochet blanket for a precious newborn due in July, made in the softest Bessie May SNIKEL, 4ply, extra fine merino – so fine and soft and perfect for a precious newly awaited baby.

Enjoy whatever you are working on, and planning next of course…. and the sunshine

Happy Days ~ Spring is Springing

Posted on - 30/03/2021

At last Spring is Springing & we slowly move a step forward out of lockdown.

We continue to stay open and sending out lovely parcels of yarn to be created into special things. Thanks to all who have been busy with their Bessie May Yarn purchases, and I hope many hours of happiness have been spent knitting and crocheting while we have all been inside.

We know for sure that there have been many more new knitters and crocheters who have been learning this lovely craft, and many taking up their needles again, in some cases after decades of not doing so, during our months of lockdown, and that at least provides a happy thought from the last year. This has led to many receiving lovely hand made gifts from their friends and loved ones, so the joy has been shared.

It is good to report that the postal service, which has done an amazing job in the last year getting parcels to the right homes, is working swiftly and smoothly again, so no more warnings of delays required, which is of course vital when knitting is needing doing.

Best wishes to all from us, and happy Spring creating, as well as hopefully some precious time with family and friends in the sunshine.

Bessie May Update | Lockdown 3

Posted on - 05/02/2021

Just to share we are still busy busy busy and sending out orders of beautiful yarn during this third lockdown. It is lovely to think lots of creating is still going ahead while we are locked in again at home and the weather keeps us inside.

All orders we send go via Royal Mail, and seem to be getting to their new homes safely. Things in some areas at the current time may be taking a little longer than usual, as Royal Mail has reduced staffing at some distribution offices and on some rounds at the current time, but does not seem to have stopped parcels getting to their destinations safely.

Please browse and enjoy planning your next design challenge, and don’t hesitate to get in touch if we can be of any help.

Best wishes to our lovely customers, and keep, keeping on creating beautiful things…. x

 

WELCOME 2021 | We Are Open ……

Posted on - 06/01/2021

Welcome to 2021 and unfortunately a further lockdown.

We continue to be open and are as busy as ever posting parcels of lovely yarn to their new homes.

Postal services were really strained before Christmas and are still running slower due to reduced staffing and opening times at some distribution centres and on some rounds, but yarn is still getting through at yet another critical time for those who just have to have a new project to keep themselves busy and allow some peaceful time to create and enjoy designing.

We send best wishes for this year to all our lovely customers, and please don’t let anything put us all off our secret pleasure of knitting and crocheting.

Best wishes xxx
