We are living in chaos and the house is filled with workmen, all clattering, banging, drilling and bantering. They are cheerful chaps, but they are very noisy. In fact, the cat won't go in the house when they are there, unless she is accompanied.
As I keep getting evicted from my favourite crafting/surfing locations I have taken to running away to Mary Clare's. Clare hasn't once told me to get lost, and has kept me sane whilst my home is in disarray. As I have been camped in the shop, I have picked up some various bits and pieces of information that I thought I would pass on.
If you live in the Leicester area, you might be interested to know that Mary Clare is hosting a Rowan evening on 17th September at 7pm. The evening is going to be very informal with new Rowan yarns on display and some examples of finished garments to examine. Also, any yarn purchased (or ordered) on the night will have a 10% discount applied!
Mary Clare is now stocking copies of my patterns, for purchase. She also has an offer to get a free copy of one of my hat patterns, when you buy 2 skeins of Mirasol Akapana, which is gorgeous yarn to work with. This is a saving of £1.50!
Also, I overheard that there are a couple of places left on the beading workshop on 3rd October. If you fancy giving beading, or jewellery making, a go, then give Mary Clare a ring on 0116 255 1866, and see if you can nab one of those places. They are usually snapped up as the tutor is very gifted and the day is very enjoyable.
And finally in Mary Clare news, if you are on Facebook, there is a group you can join, which gives all the current news of events in store. Go and join it, if you want to be kept updated!
If you didn't know already, Mary Clare is located at 4 Shaftesbury Road, Leicester.
