Dear Ewe | 1 Year Birthday SALE and Giveaway!

Dear Ewe 1st Birthday Sale! 30% Discount to all items in store.

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!

Dear Ewe Being Creative Tote Bag for crocheters and knitters

This year, we’ve had some truly epic experiences! From actually starting our business in the first place and then welcoming our first stockist, to having our products featured in some amazing magazines and had the pleasure of collaborating on some exciting products.

Dear Ewe Crochet Chart themed mugs

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!

Dear Ewe creative prop cards - home is where the yarn is!

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!

Dear Ewe Just for Ewe greetings card

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.

And if you pop on over to either the Dear Ewe Instagram Page or our Facebook page you could enter our giveaway to win 5 of our fun greetings cards.

Hurry for that one as it finishes on 17 July!

There’s also a free crochet pattern coming up on the Dear Ewe blog too that’s birthday themed so you might want to look out for that one.

Well that’s it from me! Until next time folks! Happy hooking, keep calm and crochet on my friends xx


Crochet Short Story Competition | The Woolly Writer


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’s annual 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 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
