Thing 1 & Thing 2
Janie's Friday Feature
Welcome to this week's Friday Feature Newsletter - the Janie Crow equivalent of a Sunday supplement magazine....
I hope this newsletter finds you all well and happy and that you have some great plans for the weekend. The weather is particularly miserable here in North London today, so I hope it is a bit brighter where you are. When it is a bit grey and rainy I find it quite hard to feel motivated and I have to admit that the idea of the settee and the company of the TV is quite alluring at the moment, but this weekend is in fact set to be quite busy because of two really exciting things:
Thing One: My new JANIE CROW web site has officially gone live today! The site it is not totally up to speed, but I am so desperate to show it to you that I decided it should go live regardless - I hope you will like it! You can find more information about the new site in the 'What's New' feature lower down this email.
Thing Two: I will be taking over the Instagram feed at Simply Crochet Magazine from tomorrow morning through to Sunday evening, which means I will be busy sharing images and stories for the weekend. Please do drop by to take a look!
This week I had planned to take a look at the new fashion trends for spring and had wanted to give you an over all view of what will be in and what will be out this year. There is one key trend that I really want to write about, partly because it relates so well to my yarny world, but also because I have always been a big fan of DENIM. Sadly though, with all that has been going on with the new web sites and all the catching up that needed to be done after our trip to Vogue Knitting Live, I have decided to schedule this piece in for a future newsletter.
Don't forget that the colouring in competition closes next Friday, so you only have one more week to get your entry back to us in the post. The overall winner will receive £150, a yarn pack of their personal colour design, they will have their colourway included in a revised Delft pattern AND they will be featured in Simply Crochet magazine. The two runner up prizes are the same, but will receive £50 each. I think these are pretty great prizes, so, if you like a bit of mindful colouring in and are looking for something to do over the weekend, why not download the entry form (after reading the competition guidelines) and get colouring in!
I hope you will enjoy five minutes away from what you are doing to take a short break in my company whilst you read through this week's newsletter - as always, if you have anything you want to say or contribute please hit reply and let me know!
