July 2016

Clive has managed to work on some little bits for Timbertops wheels, this month, as well as doing repeat bobbins etc. - Nothing too heavy yet. I am busy building stock for Fibre East including some nice reconditioned wheels and lots of the accessories. Also taken a number of bookings for Groups and Guilds. Wrekin Spinners for November this year and Brecknock WSD, North Cheshire WSD and Lancs & Lakes WSD for 2017, (see calendar at the side)

May/June 2016

Busy period. Clive's recovery is going well and the Physio is pleased with his exercise efforts and he is gradually spendng more time in the workshop building up his workload, but very gradually. I am also now virtually recovered from my concussion although it did go on a bit longer than i had hoped.

Wonderful visit in May to the Tynedale Spinners Gathering followed a month later by Woolfest. Strange show this year as quite a lot quieter on the Friday,but luckily more folk did turn up on the Saturday.

March/April 2016

We had a lovely visit to both the Avon and Somerset Guilds on March 12th & 19th. It was very enjoyable and they both made us very welcome. On the 31st of March I had a bit of an accident and got concussion so April was spent with Clive hobbling around with his hip and me having to rest more than I wanted. Anyway 20th April I managed to get Clive to the hospital in Bristol for his operation and then I went up to Wonderwool to set up with my lovely friend Anna as my assistant for the weekend. We had a successful Wonderwool, meeting lots of lovely old and new customers. Then I was back home Sunday night and then on the Monday 25th collected Clive from the hospital. Clive is now taking it steady & gradually recovering and after a rest I am gradually getting stock etc sorted.

January/February 2016

Started the new year with an influx of wheels to recondition and a lot of repeat bobbins to do. Beginning of February was a bit fraught but gradually settling down and some good things have happened in the later part of the month. Have heard that we have been accepted for Fibre East and then Woolfest. Some new lines will be on sale this space.

November/December 2015

Lovely shows at Bakewell and Kendal and a busy lead up to Christmas with lots of accessories being sold. Now to make more.

Wishing all our Customers a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year

October 2015

Fantastic show at Yarndale now back to the grindstone and on with more work on Timbertops and also restocking and reconditoning ready for a run of shows this month. Bakewell Wool Gathering, Kendal Wool Gathering and the All Wales Guild of WSD meeting in Llanidloes.

August / September 2015

Had a really enjoyable Fibre East with good sales and enjoyable company, now on with Timbertops and getting ready for Yarndale

June / July 2015

We had a lovely time at Woolfest meeting up with many of our 'old' customers and meeting lots of new ones.Not long before Fibre East so having recovered from one show we are now trying to get ready for the next.

May 2015

The bobbins ordered at the show have now been completed and now trying to catch up replacing the stock sold too. Couple of things Clive has to do as my lathe is not quite long enough and then he is back on with Timbertops. We have a lot to do in a very short time. At least we have a good supply of reconditioned wheels ready to go..

January 2015 / April 2015

Well the first four months went in the blink of an eye, as we were both working very hard. We had an enjoyable Wonderwool and successfully completed a Timbertops Beaver to take with us as our demo model and now have to complete the rest of the Beaver orders. The bobbins ordered at the show have now been completed and now trying to catch up replacing the stock sold too. Couple of things Clive has to do as my lathe is not quite long enough and then he is back on with Timbertops.

December 2014 / January 2015

Well as we look back on an eventful year, we have progressed but not as fast as we wanted with Timbertops but new templates to replace those destroyed in 2012 have gradually been made and progress is getting faster. In many other ways we have progressed in leaps and bounds.

We would like to wish all our Customers old and new a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year. We will be closed for Christmas Day / Boxing and again for New Years Day other than that we will be working. Then we are closed from 5th January to 11th January and will reopen on 12th. During this period we can be contacted via email or our mobile number and the main number will have an answering machine for none urgent messages, just leave your name and number and we will get back to you.

Busy in workshop with the Timbertops and also making other stock. Just added Abusson Tapestry Bobbins to our stock list.

This Sunday 7th December is the last chance to see our giftware stand (All our prices reduced as selling off a lot of giftware) when I attend the Memorial Hall in Whitchurch (near Ross on Wye) come along and get some good bargains 10am to 1pm

October / November 2014

Well we had a lovely show at Bakewell and thoroughly enjoyed our last show of the year. Now home and Clive is back in the workshop working on the Timbertops Wheels again. I will be back in the workshop shortly and working on rebuilding stock.
