I love sharing Indie Dyers on the blog and this week I am catching up with Yvonne from the Dublin Dye Company. You have heard me mention one or two things about her over on the podcast but today let’s hear more from the lady behind those skeins:
For today’s interview, I thought we could meet Aishling Doonan of Ruby Sasha Designs. This year, Aishling won the Guild of Irish Lacemakers Prize at the RDS National Craft Show for the second…
Ever wondered about starting your own Indie Yarn Company? Victoria from Eden Cottage Yarns answers some questions on the blog.
In this interview Woolly talks about her new Elemental collection along with yarn bending, knitwear design and inspiration. Pop over to the blog to find out more.
Robynn very kindly took some time out of her busy schedule to tell us a little bit more about her background, designs, Studio Miranda, creative inspirations and challenges as a knitwear designer. I hope you enjoy and a huge thank you to Robynn and to Armin Rüede for the wonderful photographs in today’s post. Enjoy!
Over on the blog today is an interview with Jenny Sisk of Townhouse Yarns. Come and meet the wonderfully talented lady behind those gorgeous skeins.
This week I am taking a closer look at one of Ireland’s beautiful crochet designers Aoibhe Ní Shúilleabháin. Aoibhe very kindly took the time to answer some questions for the Notebook. Today is Part I which focuses on design. Aoibhe is a talented lady with over a decade under her belt as a published crochet designer, she has inspired a new generation to pick up a hook and try their hand at a modern take on an age-old craft.
Angie has been on the Cottage Notebook from the very early episodes of the podcast and it has been fantastic to watch her yarn business, Gamer Crafting Yarns, grow. I thought that we could all get to know her a little better so I asked her to answer some questions and we could all get to know her a little better.
Today I take a look at Laura Hogan aka the person behind Ellie & Ada. If you have been following the blog for a while you would have seen lots from Laura as I personally love her work. Laura was the first hand-dyer I ever met and the first skein of hand-dyed yarn I ever used all those years ago and I hold her somewhat responsible for my descent into this yarn business.
As part of the craft section of the Notebook, I get to chat with dyers and designers that make up this amazing community of independents making their mark on the Irish craft scene. Recently I got a chance to catch up with Rachel of The Fibre Kitchen.
I love sharing insights in to the craft world and in particular Indie Dyers and Designers stories on the blog. I think it’s important to get to know the people behind those luxurious hand dyed yarns we all covet. Today on the blog I want to introduce you all to Fiona of Green Elephant Yarn.
