BHF Donation made

As promised, today we donated £51.18 to BHF from sales of our February club and other donations from sales since December 2018.

Thank You to everyone who supported this club and also bought our selection of knitting accessories that we designed to provide donations to this charity.

So far we’ve raised over £170 and today I increased our target amount on the JustGiving page for this year by £100 to £250. Next month we’ll be releasing some new designs that will provide donations to this charity with every product bought.

Thank again everyone!

Love Hearts Stitch Marker Club Reveal

This is one of my favourite club sets so far!

There are still a few sets available and we will continue to donate to British Heart Foundation whilst stocks last.

It’s been 13 years…

…since we sold our first set of stitch markers! Wow, that’s gone so quick!

Atomic Knitting is 13 years old

Atomic Knitting celebrates 13 years of stitch markers!

Back in 2006 we had started making few sets of stitch markers to aid knitting projects and decided to sell a few sets on eBay to test the market. At the time there were only a few plastic sets around in shops and none of the accessories that we carry today.

Later in the year we did a local craft fair (our first and last!) as we also had an online bead shop. After making a tough call to choose which business to take forward, the niche of stitch markers won! It was risky at the time but it was well worth the adventure!

The hobby became a micro business within a few months, and we had and still have many regular customers and wholesale orders.  A year or two later and we started exhibiting at multiple knitting and fibre shows every year. We’ve met lots of our lovely customers and it’s thanks to our customers that we are thriving after all these years.

The Butterfly and Swarovski Stitch Marker Set was one of the first set of stitch markers sold, and as a ‘Happy 13th Birthday to Atomic Knitting‘, we’re bringing them back for a limited time. Back in 2006, each set sold for £5 and we are going to stick at that price. Available now in limited numbers, these pretty stitch markers will be presented ribbon tied on card and they make a pretty gift or treat for yourself.
