Christmas is Coming

Sunday, 19 November 2017 19:15

At the time of writing it’s five weeks until Christmas. Which sounds like ages away. It’s not!

I’ve been busily putting out new stock, some very Christmassy indeed. The gallery is literally bursting with new arts and crafts and looks wonderful. However, I’m still to succomb to winterfying the window and, at the moment, it’s still autumnal on Cloud 9. 

From the inside, looking out!

I’ll get all wintery this week though I think - look out for that!

I’ve just been adding a new workshop to the calendar after a visit from the lovely Nida Kamran. Nida runs the popular Facebook page Yarn, Hook and Loop and recently moved to Dumfries. Nida paid a visit to my Yarn & Yatter drop in a few weeks back and returned offering to tutor some crochet classes. We’ve got a few planned for the new year, but we’ve popped a cheeky wee workshop in before Christmas. Nida will be teaching workshoppers how to! Book that one quickly.

Coming up soon is Small Business Saturday and I’ve got some free workshops planned at the gallery on Saturday 2nd December. If you’ve every fancied your hand at needle felting you can pop in and make a brooch under the watchful eyes of Catherine and myself! We’ll also be serving mulled wine and punch and mince pies to anyone popping in.

Lastly, my 2018 calendar has hit the shops and can be bought from my Etsy shop and at Cloud 9. It features twelve of the fifty Tiny Paintings I painted earlier in the year and comes spiral bound in A5 size at £10.
