  • UKI UPDATE

    UKI UPDATE

    We will be ready to make the remaining stock of UKI Mercerised Cotton available for sale online on Saturday 25th November at 8pm.  We hope that by giving you plenty of notice and launching the sale on a Saturday it will make the sale accessible to as many customers as possible.  I appreciate some customers have not been able to access the website until after I had removed the stock from sale because of the demand. I promise that this time it will remain on sale until it is all sold. If demand is high orders will be processed in the order they are received and as before customers placing orders for non sale items will be given priority as I am sure you would all expect. The discount remains at 50% and there will be no further changes to the price regardless of the size of order or time scale.

  • UKI NEWS

    Once again we have been overwhelmed by orders for the half price UKI. Despite John's best efforts to catch up there is still a huge amount of winding to do which with one single head cone winder will take a long time. So we will process those orders placed during the past 24 hours as quickly as we can but it is likely to be early next week before they are all despatched. As before once your order is ready you will receive a despatch email.
    In the interim the remaining stock will again be removed from sale and this time we plan to manage the situation differently. The sale will be relaunched when all of the stock is wound. Given the commitments we have in the next few weeks and the fact that we still need to process orders for customers who don't want UKI this is going to take us a few weeks.
    We will keep you posted on progress and once again we thank you for your support and understanding.

  • UKI News

    Dear Customers and Friends,

    This week we received sudden and unexpected news from UKI.

    They have made significant changes to their terms of trading and they will no longer supply yarns in small quantities. We are unable to trade with them on this basis and there is no other supplier of UKI cotton.

    We are busy looking for another supplier of premium mercerised cotton in these counts.  We will keep you informed via the website and the usual social media channels.

    Our offer has been built on supplying repeatable yarns. Because  we are unable to restock UKI cotton, we have decided to offer all our remaining UKI stock at half price.

    The website has been updated with current availability. As colours become out of stock they will be removed from web shop. When ordering please make sure that you purchase sufficient for your project. We are trying to keep the numbers accurate but at present have to prioritise getting orders  processed.

    We have four planned outings in the next few weeks, where we will also be bringing our normal stock.We will bring any remaining UKI stock with us these events. If you would like to pre-order on the website we can bring your order rather than posting it. Please place your order on the website in the in the usual way. At the checkout select “collect from our office” as your delivery option and add a note to say which Guild visit you will be attending.

    UKI UPDATE.

    Orders that need winding can take up to an hour to prepare and demand is high. Orders are being packaged in the order that they are received and once you receive a delivery email your yarn will be in the post by the next working day at the latest meaning you will know that it will be with you soon. Most orders will be sent via Royal Mail although this may mean more than one parcel and some orders will need to be signed for. This gives us a longer window for posting and everything can be delivered to the sorting office. Your delivery email will tell you if a signature will be required. Most customers are opting for 2nd class post; Royal Mail's delivery standard on this service is 3 working days.

    I am sure that you will understand that customers placing full price orders will be prioritised and can expect the usual fast service MFWY normally provides. I will continue to keep you updated here and once again thank you for your support and patience.
  • We are busy getting ready for our trip to the AGSWD  Trade Fair this week. The Trade Fair is open to the public  on Saturday from 10-4, details of the other traders can be found here. http://www.wsd.org.uk/pdfs/2017_Summer_%20School_Open_Day_details.pdf

    As well as the Trade Fair  there will be a Tutors Exhibition, Certificate of Achievement Exhibition and the work rooms will be open for viewing so it is possible to see what everyone has been working on during the week.

    If you are visiting and want something in particular please et me know by Wednesday at the latest so I  can make sure it is loaded on the van. There is no obligation to purchase pre orders.

  • New Variegated Cotton

    Here are the pictures of towels woven by Valerie using all 10 colour variations of the new 8/2 variegated cotton. She warped one stripe of each colour separating each strip with Venne 8/2 Cotton in Irish Cream which was also used for the weft. The finished cloth has a lovely soft hand and there is no discernible difference in the two brands of yarn.

It is excellent value for money too, a perfect way to start learning to weave or extend your skills. Do get in touch with Anna for more information.

  • DEVON WEAVERS WORKSHOP COURSES

    I'm always pleased to be asked to share details of courses arranged by DWW. It's a lovely place to go and meet up with other weavers. It's a super place to go to learn something new, visitors are always made very welcome, I can thoroughly recommend it.

    They are hosting a 3 day course on Scandinavian Weaves taught by Jette Vandermeiden. Jette is everything you could ask for in a teacher- extremely knowledgeable, calm, kind and very very patient. It will be a splendid course I only wish I could go but I'm already spoken for that weekend! Full details on the course and contact details for booking on the attached flyer which will download if you click on the link.
