A great start to 2017
Starting the new year off by exhibiting at the Waltham Abbey Wool Show on January 15th http://www.walthamabbeywoolshow.co.uk/ Woolly Chic met lots of lovely people and gained some great feedback on our new Hexie Handbag kit!
I had a fantastic time at the wonderful MK Handmade & Vintage fair on 5th and 6th November selling our British wool, knitting and crochet kits and some handmade woolly creations!
Lovely to see everyone who stopped by to say hello, I am always happy to talk about wool, knitting and crochet!
For more information on this fantastic event visit:
The trees in St. Mary's Churchyard were once again adorned with wool as part of the Hitchin Festival.
Taking place during the month of July, therewas lots to surprise and delight people - as we put on a tree-mendous fashion show!
Woolly Chic reached the finals of the Muddy Stilettos Awards!
Thank you to everyone who voted. It was brilliant to get such fantastic support and Woolly Chic came a very close second in the best Local Producer (non-food) category.
Woolly Chic was proud to have been selected to exhibit at Kirstie Allsopp's first Handmade Fair!
We joined Kirstie in her campaign to Get Britain Crafting at what proved to be a wonderful and inspiring event packed full with lots of talented craftspeople and lovely visitors who all seemed to enjoy getting stuck in to learning some new crafts.
Lovely to meet so many fantastic people at Fibre East - and the sun shone all weekend!
The highlight of the weekend for me though, was when a customer stopped by with a beautiful cardigan she had made with Woolly Chic wool. She also let me put it on display on my stall!
Woolly Chic wool and sheep on display at Wonderwool Wales - 27th & 28th April 2013

Woolly Chic on show at the unravel festival in Farnham

It was fantastic to take part in the unravel wool festival. Huge thanks to the organisers and I hope to do it again next year!
Crochet Pattern Corrections
We make every effort to ensure that our patterns are correct, but occasionally something does slip through! A mistake has been picked up in the Sheep Tea Cosy Pattern.
Please take note if you have bought a kit before 14 December 2012
For the tea cosy sides, the pattern should not say repeat row 6 as it would suggest continuing to increase. The pattern should say:
Row 7 1 ch, 1 loop st in each st to the end (30 sts)
Row 8 1 ch, 1 dc st in each st to the end (30 sts)
Rows 9 - 13 repeat rows 7 and 8
