Welcome to this month's bumper newsletter. We have quite a lot to tell you about this month - if you want to see my quick video that summarises the theme of the newsletter then click here or on the image below.
I have also recorded a technique video as a response to your questions from last month. The video focusses on crochet techniques for joining blocks, as this was the most popular question. In the video I talk about my preferred joining technique and also cover a few other common joins. You can find the video here.
We have received a lot of requests for me to show other techniques, but are open to more suggestions, so if there is something you want to know about please get in touch and we will add it to the list of things to be featured in the future. You can ask a crochet related question or something more relevant to me and my design work (although you may find an answer to one of these type of questions has already been covered in my key note speech). You might want to ask me something more personal, like what is my favourite chocolate bar (Double Decker) or how old my children are (25 &22) for example. It is up to you!
A few of you have asked about how I select my yarn shades to use in projects. Sometimes I have a clear idea of a palette before I start and other times I just swatch and swatch until I am happy with my choices. You can find more information about how I choose a palette lower down this email as it ties in brilliantly with the theme for this months newsletter which is the 2020/21 Autumn/Winter trend forecast, but before Gemma, Sarah and myself launch into that I just want to update you on a few other things, so please stay tuned....
