A6 notebook. Approximate measurements: L = 15cm, W = 10cm, D = 0.5cm
Designed, printed and produced in Scotland. I worked with a local graphic designer and printers based less than 2 miles away from me in Edinburgh.
I donate 10% of the profit I make on each organiser to a charity, which changes every 6 months. Between now and the end of 2020 this will be donated to Stop Hate UK, who challenge all forms of Hate Crime and discrimination, based on any aspect of an individual’s identity. Stop Hate UK provides independent, confidential and accessible reporting and support for victims, witnesses and third parties.
Packaging is typically 100% cardboard/ paper based which is fully recyclable. I also occasionally use recycled and reused plastic packaging.
Getting started - my adventures in yarn journey
Finding the joy in pen, paper and yarn
As an enthusiastic crafter, I can see first-hand the benefit of finding time for creativity and making. And as a mum to young children, with a corporate job and trying to run a small business I also feel the struggle of fitting it into my everyday routine.
Prompted by loosing track of my knitting and crochet projects too many times while I was on maternity leave, I searched for a way of keeping organised so I could focus my time on the making rather than the admin. After searching around and failing to find what I needed, and thinking that others surely face similar challenges, I decided to create my own notebook to help me keep on track.
Fast forward a few years, and I have slowly established a beautiful, inspiring and practical range of stationery for yarn lovers. Designed by a yarn lover for a yarn lover, every element has been carefully crafted and tailored for people who crochet, knit, design, dye or spin. By creating practical tools that are a pleasure to use, I hope to encourage makers to see the benefits of being better organised, as well as the simple joy of putting pen to paper.
Here’s some of what you’ll find inside the organisers:
Lots of space to record your project notes, plans of what you plan to work on next or future design ideas.
Sections to attach yarn samples and reminders, and removable labels for tension squares
Pages to record to do lists, monthly reminders and goals, wish lists of yarns, patterns or accessories, your achievements, reminders of things you want to check out, and your goals
Plenty of plastic pockets for storing useful bits and pieces, anything from yarn bands, to yarn festival acquisitions!
I’ve tried to combine useful and practical features with simple, inspiring and adaptable design.
