It’s just over two years since I wrote my blog about giving up the day job – and today I’m really excited to let you know about my new day job!
After working for Coats Crafts for 6 years, I hugely missed visiting lovely retailers and of course I missed receiving all the advanced information and Rowan samples. I’ve been a fan of Rowan for years and the Fyne slipover opposite is almost entirely responsible for my Felted Tweed addiction! But the job wasn’t allowing me time to work on projects outside of work and giving up the day job was definitely the right decision for me at the time.
I’m very happy to say that I now have a part-time job with Mez crafts (who own Rowan) and as of Monday 15th August I will be working as a Brand Account Manager. I can’t wait to work with my Rowan family again and I’m really looking forward to getting started and visiting our lovely Rowan stockists.
As the job is part-time, it means I will have time outside of work to continue my freelance work – so you will still see me at shows and workshops and I have plenty of new designs planned as well as a knit-along for 2017!
My first day coincides beautifully with an event celebrating Rowan’s 60th magazine! Kaffe Fasset will be will be hosting a talk on his career and the history of his association with Rowan. Hopefully I’ll see some of you there?
