REVEAL…

We’re open again!

The move went really well and we are back open again this morning. I’m really pleased with how the studio is looking and how remarkably easy I’m finding it to remember where the beads and findings are!

Here’s how the studio is looking this morning…

Now I’m off to pack up the last week of orders!

Studio Life

This year sees us moving the design studio to a new home. It’s not going to be straightforward, there’s been so far a lot of sorting, labelling and a sale for surplus stock.

They’ll have to be two moves (oh joy!) so that we can keep the business running and so the first move will happen in early June, to temporary premises with the bare essentials to keep turning over orders, creating new products and running the clubs.

During the remainder of June and July, I intend on taking some time to plan out the new studio space, together with new plans for updated and new product ranges in the Autumn.

The second half of the move should happen in late August and we should be back up and running in September.

The temporary premises are set up ready to move straight into and I’m looking forward to the calm and tranquillity that this will bring.

Want to copy the studio styling above? IKEA have a great range of units that we mix and match to create our studio space.

  • 3 x Alex drawers £50 each
  • 4 x Besta units £15 each with shelves £5 each
  • 1 x Lilltrask worktop £30 each
  • 2 x retro style chairs, similar can be found here

Can’t wait to move in!

A time out

We’re going to be taking a little break for a few days next week and the studio will be closed. The website will remain open and orders can be placed at any time whilst the studio is closed. All orders placed after Wednesday 6th June will be dispatched on Wednesday 13th June.

Our June Mystery Club sign up will commence in mid June – don’t forget to sign up here to be the first to receive the secret link to the limited edition club.

No show, this year!

Normally at this point on the Friday before Wonderwool Wales, I’m frantically checking I have everything packed into the car! Sadly this year, Atomic Knitting is not exhibiting at Wonderwool and after a lot of thought we chose to have a fallow year (a bit like the Glastonbury Festival)! It’s our first year off in over 10 years and I’ll miss seeing you all.

We were lucky enough to supply an item for this year’s goody bag for the Flock Gathering, so I feel like we are there in spirit at least. It’s a rather strange feeling, missing out on one of my favourite shows though.

As we like to be part of it all, there’s 15% off all orders placed on the website until midnight 1st May and free shipping on UK orders over £10!

Have a fantastic show if you’re going, and we’ll see you at the next one.

REVEAL – Spring Flowers March Club

Our March Mystery Stitch Marker club was themed around spring flowers, although the weather at the start of the month had been anything but spring-like! The Beast From The East met Storm Emma and unleashed almost total shut down for at least 2 days in the UK, despite not that much snow falling. In some areas, there were some huge drifts and there was a great deal of black ice. In the UK we simply aren’t equipped for such weather events, so everything stops. In Wales, we had a red weather warning, for snow, wind and ice, and as such, I ventured out a few hours before the storm was due and shipped the March club a day early. I later discovered that the local village Post Office did not have a collection that day due to the forecast, ah well! I tried…

There are still a couple of sets left on the website at the club price of £10. Hurry if you want a set, as once these have sold there won’t be any more made.

Here’s the REVEAL!!!

march-club-1

The theme of the club was lime green and purple. The colours, in particular, remind me of the first shoots of spring (green and yellow) and the first flowers of late winter/early spring with crocuses and anemones (purple). Don’t they contrast nicely with the colours of my knitted shawl?
