» Listings for January 2020

  1. When we revamped the website one thing we wanted was to make it easier to see which products led to a donation to charity.

    So now you’ll see this in the shop.

     

    You’ll find all of the information about how much is being donated on the listing for each item. We think it’s clearer – and we hope you do to.

    Shoots of Hope

    There are yarns which are raising money for Foodbank Australia.

    Cassowary

    The first batch of Cassowary sold out fast, so we’re taking preorders for batch 2.

    Wool Felt Bag with Crochet Print

    There are bags which are raising money for the Trussell Trust.

    Have a look, and tell us what you think.

  2. Yesterday we talked about the four colourways which will be in the shop at 1900 this evening to raise money for Foodbank Australia.

    As well as yarn we’re also selling bags.

    Made from screen printed wool felt and lined with linen our bags are designed to hold up to four 100 gram skeins of yarn. We’ve designed these to be broad at the base, so they sit nicely. The wool felt is fantastically sturdy stuff – so in the photos the bags don’t have anything in them to make them stand up.

    You might have noticed that the tags have the Bobbie & Joy logo on them. Going forward all of our bags will be labelled that way. There’s a new website on the way, so until then we’ll have these on The Knitting Goddess website.

    We wanted to do something to celebrate getting the first bags for Bobbie and Joy made, so we’ll be donating £15 from the sale of each to the Trussell Trust. The Trust is behind many of the food banks in the UK. They’re a brilliant charity who gave out 1.6 million emergency food parcels last year.

    The bags will be in the shop at 1900 this evening, so if you are browsing before then you won’t see them.
