Welcome to Retreat Yarn and Pattern Club 2021
In 2019 I ran the Blooming Lovely Yarn Club. I thoroughly enjoyed running the club; over the course of the year I released patterns and yarns - many of them hand dyed all with a botanical theme and the end of the year the patterns and accompanying essays were put together into the Blooming Lovely Club patterns and words publication.
I had planned to run this again in 2020 and was just about to launch when the pandemic struck and with it came huge uncertainty as to how to continue running a small mail order business in such a difficult situation. And so I shelved the 2020 club. In 2019 I also hosted my first retreats based around the area where I live. I loved running the retreats and again had plans in 2020 to host retreats on and around our farm. Of course, I have been unable to do so and sadly, the situation regarding travel and holidaying in the UK remains uncertain in 2021 and so I have decided instead to launch the RETREAT yarn and pattern club, bringing the farm, the sheep and the landscape to you.
The club is going to be somewhat different to that of 2019. There will be four installments, commencing in Spring and each will be accompanied by its own Retreat magazine published (see a sample cover image below) and created by myself and my daughter, Charlie.
