Happy New Year

Happy New Year to you all! We celebrated in style with a house party and amazing fireworks.

2015 was an amazing year for Debonnaire and I am looking forward to an even better 2016. While I don’t do resolutions- I am determined to especially work on 2 areas. First, we are going  to increase our social media exposure.

While I am already on Twitter(@ehdknits) and Instagram-debonnaireyarns, I have set up new boards on pinterest-check them out and hopefully you will follow if it interests. My favourite new board is Sheepspiration. The Facebook page (Debonnaire Distinctive Yarns) will open soon.

The second area I need to improve is my back strength- seriously necessary for the amount of stuff and dye pots I lug around. Pilates here I come.

My current favourite colour is pink -at least it was one day last week:

A New Website!

At long last, our new website is open. No longer do my clients have to wade through the cumbersome Artfire site, wondering what the US dollar prices mean in real money (or euros). Check it out- although still a work in progress (and given the nature of  my hand dyeing will always be), I’m very proud of what we’ve done so far. Many thanks to Vanessa and Jimi- I promise to stop being a ruthless General/Dictator one of these days.

Quite busy preparing for the double bill this week. I set up Exeter Creative Stitches show at Westpoint on Wednesday . Here’s a glimpse almost setup.
