Can’t believe I haven’t been on here for so long! Been doing lots of things including new scarves and lots of new tapestries which i’ll show you in future posts! i just couldn’t wait to show you my new royal stewart cashmere scarves and my robert burns check scarf.
The scarves are 2ply cashmere and the woven check or tartan is pure new wool woven in scotland. We’ve been selling these scarves in other tartans exclusively to Inverary castle in Argyll and a few other places! The scarves are 12 x 56 inches and are a complete bargin gift!
check them out in my etsy shop
www.jemmajo.etsy.com pardon the pun!
sorry for the lack of posts and pictures, I have been kinda overwhelmed with orders and working all spare hours in the new studio. I will try and get some pics up! I’m off to oban this friday to take some scarves to a shop who is intertested- and am possibly going to start asking other potential places too.
Hopefull I’ll manage to get the rest of my things in the studio – loom is still wrapped up in the garden awaiting transport and so is the smaller wooden one inside and also my grandfathers stand which I use to sit on when weaving.
tan agua mix with that little sparkle!
lovely lavender mix!
Today I listed 4 new wraps into my jemmajo shop, only to find that my mind went blank and I couldn’t think of good appealing titles for them! I’ve listed them under colourway in hope!
Must be the stress of this week………..
macleod silk tartan with navy and two tone green grey silk
Remember if you have any small pieces of fabric you would like to be accented on to a fine cashmere wrap just convo me at my shop on etsy…..I’d be happy to oblige……….
The craft fair at Byblos was mainly students so the cashmere wraps didn’t go down well…….infact – didn’t sell any! Had some people interested in looking and saying they are gorgeous but not willing to spend £39. Most of the stalls didn’t sell much and some like us didn’t even cover their cost of the stall…oh well it was for charity I guess….
Hopefully the one at the litehouse will be better apparently it is more of a mix of people who come….so here’s hoping … Any way at least i’ve got the stock already for it!
So that was our first craft fair!
New colours …..Blues! also our new labels came today which i can’t wait to put on our scarves!
Have pinned pinks and lilacs and blues onto the more turquoise one already!
I’ve at last opened a new shop for the j’emmajo scarves and moved them there from my knitting shop byemmajo. This may seem a little strange to do that but I’ve had so many commissions for scarves recently that it seemed to be the right thing to do and not have them mixed up with knitting and other things. Actually I named the shop back in april but couldn’t decide whether to or not…
Today I’ve pinned out a gorgeously rich chocolate brown scarf with purples and blues will get a photograph soon…I also started doing some wee cotton bags but am not sure………….will photo them when I think they are right.
hardly got any work done today…had a wonderful day yesterday at finlaystone park with all the kids…their highlight was finding a dead frog – we got rained on butit was great!
so today i sorted out all my emails- took me ages considering i get about 500 spam a day and have to fight my way through….had some great emails – including one order fort a pale pink scarf…..!
wean went to bed fairly early so hence me able to get on here to write!
If you live in the lanarkshire arera visit findlaystone park – it is wonderful….
