I’m pausing the knitwear side of my business….
After considerable thought, agonising and debate I have decided that after Christmas 2023, I will be shutting down the knitwear side of my business for an indeterminate amount of time.
I have come to this conclusion following a difficult couple of years running a business whilst also looking after my son. We don’t have childcare so have been balancing work and looking after our son between my husband and I and it just isn’t sustainable any longer. I simply do not have the time or the energy to continue on in this way. Coupled with my second pregancy it feels like the right time to take a step back, rethink, reset and most importantly rest.
I will continue to take made to order items until 10th November 2023 and will continue accepting orders from the ready to ship section of the website until 11th December 2023. After this all items will be taken from the website and I don’t yet have a plan as to when I will return with them. (I may reopen the ready to ship for a short time in January if the demand is there).
After Christmas I will be working on some new online workshops, adding to what I already offer. Workshops will still be available during this time of change.
I will also be selling my wares at the Made in Bristol Gift Fair at the Bristol Beacon on 9th December between 10-4. I’ll have a limited amount of stock so come down early to get first dibs.
I want to take this opportunity to say thank you to all my customers and for all the support I have had over the past few years. I am incredibly proud of all that I have achieved with my knits, and look forward to coming back to it all with some new ideas, better working conditions for myself and some new systems in place. Thanks for sticking by me and loving my knits as much as I do, it has been a true pleasure making them for you all.
All the best,
