Another hectic few weeks

Posted by Sally Ridgway on

 After a pretty busy time getting organised and ready for the Tasmanian Craft Fair in Deloraine in early November I jumped head first into restocking and getting ready for another busy Christmas season at the Makers Workshop in Burnie.

First up for the dye pot was some Corriedale wool from New Zealand. This is fast becoming a favourite for my lovely regular ladies. I have also started to stock The Yarn Inn at Latrobe with these versatile fibres.

After the Corriedale was done I worked on another batch of my supreme sock yarn. This yarn is at the top end for luxury in knitting. I am also always pleasantly surprised and very happy to receive feed back from knitters who have used my yarns. This lovely message was in my email inbox recently...

Dyeing up a storm this week...

                            After a very hectic week last week I continued on head first into a lengthy dyeing week this week. Phew, I am glad it almost over!

Work in Progress and website launch

Posted by Sally Ridgway on

Finally, it’s all starting to come together now.

About 12 months ago I quietly decided it was about time to think about branching out on my own and begin the slow process of launching my own website where I can have all of my felted works and my hand dyed fibres together.

After a lengthy amount of time convincing myself I just couldn’t do it I decided to jump right into it and give it a red hot go!

Temporarily I will remain on Etsy as well but in a much smaller scale. Etsy has enabled me to learn a whole heap about a lot of things around selling on line but I feel it is time for me to have my own site as well.

This whole crazy venture may not work but at least I am out there giving it a shot!

I hope everyone will come along with me and see what we all end up with. With some luck it will be a happy, colourful working website where you can find all of my fibres as well as my felted pieces under one roof at last.
