JANIE'S FRIDAY FEATURE
Welcome to this week's Friday Feature Newsletter - the Janie Crow equivalent of a Sunday supplement magazine....
I am so excited to be able to tell you that the JANIE CROW web shop is finally up and running! Can you believe it? It's only taken 3 months! You can find a link to the shop here.
The shop features paper pattern brochures for my designs, download patterns and my books and I have also added some lovely shawl pins, clasps and closures made by a company called Jul, who create beautiful accessories, bags and housewares in leather and metal. I will be adding to this range over the next month or so, so do keep an eye on it.
I am also hoping to add more third party products to the site over the forthcoming weeks. I really like the idea of project bags and lovely accessories and Julie from Tilly Flop Designs has already agreed to let me have stock of her fabulous greeting cards on the site, so I will try and get this sorted soon.
Some areas of the site are still under construction and not everything has the right links yet (if any at all) so do bear with me while these final things are sorted. Hopefully everything is on schedule to be finished by the end of the month and then I can finally stop apologising for being so behind!
We have already received lots of votes in the Delft competition and the voting is open for another week, so if you haven't had a chance to look at the finalists already, you can find more information lower down this email.
I have a new design this week too - it is a hand knit cushion cover called Streymoythat I designed for last year's cruise trip around the UK and to the Faroe Islands that I tutored for Stitchtopia. The cover is knitted in the round using the fairisle technique and the design is based on traditional Faroese designs. I am hoping that some of the Janie Crow stockists will have kits for this within the next few weeks, so I will let you know if any do in case you want to purchase a yarn pack to accompany the project.
We are really looking forward to the Easter break. The forecast here in North London is looking lovely, so I am really looking forward to the break, especially as we rarely get more than one or two days at home at a time. I am not sure what I will do with myself with a whole 4 days off!
Whatever you are planning to do I hope you all have a fabulous time and, as always, if you have anything you want to tell us about, please hit reply....
