This time last year I was making grand plans for Bluebell Yarns. While there were various circumstances that caused a lot of these plans not to come to fruition I can still say that it has been a good year for the company.
This year’s advent calendars sold a record amount – 48! I’d initially only made 42 so that’s an amazing result. I’ve loved seeing pictures and videos of people opening their little silver packages. Everyone seems to have enjoyed them and that makes the somewhat stressful experience of putting them together very much worth while. I’ve definitely got to work out a more efficient way to make them next year.
I’ve recently learned a new dye technique. I’m enjoying experimenting with it and it has lovely results so expect to see a lot more of that.
I’m going to be trying to update the shop at least once a month. Look out on social media to hear about exact dates.
Finally, I am happy to announce that my yarn is now available in Fairy Chic Emporium in Wimborne, Dorset. There’s only a small selection at the moment but we’re hoping to grow that over the next few months.
