Welcome to our new ‘Month at Sunspun’ Newsletter series. Near the beginning of each month we will send you a run down on what you can find happening in the shop, on our social media sites and any extra activities that we maybe involved in for that particular month. Wherever possible we will provide links to other places for you to find more detailed info. Of course we are always available via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or telephone (03 9830 1609) for any enquiries you may have.
So … November at Sunspun promises to be busy and a month of ‘new happenings’. We are establishing some new ways to communicate with you, namely our brand new YouTube channel and a renamed and revitalised Ravelry Group. Just some additional ways we can assist you and join you in your yarn journey.
Our Ravelry group – Sunspun Fibre Folk – has had a bit of an overhaul and if you are on Ravelry (or have been thinking of joining) why not join our group, introduce yourself and show us your lovely finished items. It is also a great place to talk to like-minded souls, ask questions and find out about ‘yarny’ things other members may have to share – we have a dedicated General Chit Chat thread for just these conversations!
Our YouTube channel is just in it’s infancy – and right now has just one tutorial but we are very excited about it and will be adding more content over time, which leads me to our last announcement which is:
We are having our first ever Shawl Along! Two beautiful shawls, one for knitters and one for crocheters. We plan to make this the first in a series of yarn alongs and hope you will help us make them fun events by participating and sharing your finished objects. We will be posting tutorials on YouTube and providing a couple of in shop help sessions as well – just in case you may like some hands-on assistance! And prizes!!! Full details will be revealed in an upcoming blog post.
Here’s a glimpse of the shawls:
