Exciting news! Dear Ewe my little fledgling business has turned ONE!! And we are doing a big ole sale to celebrate it! It’s often said that more than half of new businesses fail during the first year but we’ve made it and that’s another reason to celebrate too I think!
It’s super scary trying something new – fear, uncertainty and self-doubt all the way! And that step into the unknown was a BIG step, especially for me, but I’m proud of the fact that I took a step out of my comfort zone to try something new. And thankfully you all seem to love our mugs, bags, prints, photo prop cards, greetings cards, patterns and kits – for which we are so very thankful and grateful!
So we wanted to say a big thank you for all the support that everyone out there has given Dear Ewe in it’s first year! Which meant we had to line up some treats!
There’s a 30% discount running on all items sitewide – so if you’re thinking of presents for a crafty friend or as a treat for yourself now is the time to grab them – but get them whilst you can, offer ends 21 July 2019.
Are you an avid writer and reader and perhaps have an aspiring dream to see yourself in print? Fancied writing fiction but never had the confidence to give it a go? Love crochet and/or knitting? Well now you can combine both passions by entering Let’s Get Crafting Magazine’sannual short story competition – The Woolly Writer.
Entering is easy! You just have to pick a starting sentence from those below:
A) She slowly turned the ball of bright red yarn over in her hands, imagining all the wonderful things she could make, but before she could pop it into her basket, she felt a tapping on her shoulder…
B) The noise of the circus faded as he entered the mystic’s tent, and the only audible sounds were his laboured breathing and the click-clacking of the strange woman’s knitting needles…
C) No ordinary couple would admit to meeting at a knitting club, but Shaun and Carolyn were no ordinary couple…
They open up a world of possibilities right! From the starting sentence you then have to write a 1000 word story (which is roughly around two sheets of A4 paper). For inspiration you can read last year’s two runner-up entries here and here.
First prize is a yarn bundle from Cygnet, a £100 Search Press voucher, and a one year subscription to Let’s Get Crafting. The two runners-up prizes are a £50 Search Press voucher for each winner. The winning story will also be published in Issue 95 of the magazine, on sale 28th September 2017, as well as on the topcrochetpatterns.com website!
Deadline for entries is 14th August 2017. Click here for more details and the entry form.
Until next time; keep calm and crochet on my friends xx
