Jem Weston Shop

The Jem Weston online shop has re-opened!

You might have seen me re-launch the shop over on the virtual Yorkshire Yarn Fest last Saturday… my video is still on their page if you want to hop over for a watch. I had a couple of technical issues so apologies for the blurryness!

On the shop – I have copies of Cosy Alpaca Knits and yarn packs to knit the Alpaca Pillow, Tassel Pillow, Audrey Alpaca & Colin Cria, the Tassel Wall Hanging and Tassel Socks.

I should hopefully also have yarn packs for the Cosy Alpaca Blanket back in soon… I’m just waiting on the turquoise. Let me know if you want me to reserve a pack for you when I receive the yarn.

I also have some Cute Comfort Knits yarn packs – and don’t forget that all of those patterns are now available individually and as an Ebook from both my Ravelry and Love Knitting pattern shops.

I’ve got limited stock of The Knitted Nursery Collection left and won’t be stocking up again once they’re all sold… just a little warning!

In order to keep contact/risk low, I will be limiting my post office trips to once a week (on Tuesdays) for the time being, so apologies in advance for any delays.

All overseas orders will be posted using the Royal Mail Tracked service and you will receive a tracking number once your order is dispatched. All UK orders are still being sent via Royal Mail 1st Class – but if you want to upgrade to special delivery please just contact me for a quote.

Thank you so much to everyone who has continued to buy patterns while my online shop has been temporarily closed – I really appreciate your support!

Happy shopping x

Are you ready for Yarndale?!

I’ve been busy getting ready for Yarndale and I know some of you are as well. I hope your pre-Yarndale knitting is going better than mine… I might be wearing half a cardigan!

From now until Wednesday at 2pm, you can order any of my books to be collected at Yarndale. To remove the postage cost simply enter the code YARNDALE19 at the checkout and I will have it ready for you at the show.

Don’t forget to let me know in the ‘notes’ section if you would like the book to be signed to yourself or someone in particular.

This year I have a double stand – so hopefully you’ll all fit on! You can find me at H109 which is almost directly opposite where we’ve been for the last few years so you should be able to find me easily.

I will be announcing a little Yarndale giveaway in my newsletter this week so make sure you’re signed up!

Farewell 2017

2017 has been such an exciting year for me – in August I launched my third book Cute Comfort Knits and the response has been amazing!

Cute Comfort Knits by Jem Weston

Like me – you seem to enjoy knitting small projects for the house and little toys for gifts or yourselves. Thank you to everyone who has bought a copy of Cute Comfort Knits I really love seeing your finished projects over on Instagram!

Yarn packs and books are still available over on my shop, where you can also find copies of my second book The Knitted Nursery Collection and yarn packs for your favourite projects from there.

My highlights of 2017 were (as always) the yarn shows! It was my third year exhibiting at Yarndale and I love it a little bit more every year. I also exhibited at the first ever Nottingham Yarn Expo and really enjoyed having a show in my home town.

Thank you for all your support in 2017 and a very Happy New Year! x

 

Yarn Expo 2017

Last weekend was the first ever Nottingham Yarn Expo and it was so good to do a show in my home town! There were lots of local people – both stallholders and customers and I met so many lovely people. Thank you to everyone who came to say hello!

The open plan stands worked really well. I have to admit – I did panic when I found out there were no walls! But it made the space feel really open and I got to know my lovely stand neighbours.

The Pheasant Cushion from Cute Comfort Knits was the star of the show and Ollie Elephant from The Knitted Nursery Collection got a huge amount of cuddles! Both books and the accompanying yarn packs are available from my shop and would make lovely Christmas gifts!

I got in early on the Sunday so that I could have a mooch around before the show opened and there were so many gorgeous hand-dyed yarns. My favourite stand was Moel-Veiw Yarn. Gorgeous yarns, beautiful display – and the best project bag ever!

You’ll be pleased to hear that I was very well behaved and only treated myself to one skein of sock yarn (for my sockdrobe challenge next year) from my lovely stand neighbours Skein Queen.

Thank you Dad, Steph, Rich and Andrew for helping me get everything to and from the show and helping me to set-up x

Yarn Expo

I’m so excited to be exhibiting at Yarn Expo next weekend – the first yarn show in my home town of Nottingham!

I will be bringing copies of The Knitted Nursery Collection and my new book Cute Comfort Knits.

I will also have yarn packs for some of the most popular projects in The Knitted Nursery Collection

And yarn packs for some of your favourite projects in Cute Comfort Knits

Perfect for Christmas gifts or Christmas day knitting projects!

I will also have some old favourites, including kits for the Triangle Hat, Bobby Scarf & Hat, the Dice Cowl, Twinkly Beaded Collar and the Lazy Lace Cowl.

So make sure you get to me nice and early before I run out!

I’ve also done a big shop update, so if you can’t make it to Yarn Expo you can still join in with the shopping here.

While you’re in town – make sure you pop in to Knit Nottingham as well! Just a stones throw from the show.

See you there! x

 

Yarndale 2017

I had such a wonderful time at Yarndale!

Thank you so much to everyone who came to see us and bought a copies of Cute Comfort Knits, The Knitted Nursery Collection, knit kits and yarn packs. I absolutely loved meeting you all and your support and kind words mean so much to me x

Yarndale 2017_Jem Weston

The Deer cushion pretty much sold out on the first day! But don’t worry – I will be creating more yarn packs for Nottingham Yarn Expo. Haggis Hedgehog & Family also got a lot of love and you can now snap up a yarn pack over on my shop (they’d make great stocking fillers…).

It was lovely chatting with everyone about the Moody Blanket Knit-along! You can read more about it and buy the pattern here, and top-up packs of the yarn are available from my shop here.

I was chuffed with my new hand engraved logo! It’s a bit off-centre and not perfect, but I enjoyed doing a bit of woodwork and I’m now pondering what else I can engrave before giving Dad his Dremel back!

And of course – seeing a coach load of lovely people from Nottingham is always one of the highlights of the show! Everyone was on-brand with their marvellous Knit Nottingham bags designed by the fabulous Nettynot.

A huge thank you to Rosie & Steph for helping me at the show and being wonderful company!

New Online Shop

My online shop has moved house and had a little makeover!

You can buy signed copies of Cute Comfort Knits and The Knitted Nursery Collection.

And for everyone taking part in the Moody Blanket Knit-along you can pick up your small or large top-up packs here. Just select from the drop-down menu whether you would like five or ten balls and leave me a ‘note’ with your shade choices as per usual.

Moody Blanket KAL 2017

I only have a limited number of kits/yarn packs, but don’t panic!…other kits will be available at Yarndale and Yarn Expo and I will regularly update what is available on the shop so keep your eyes peeled for new goodies.

I’m also introducing a brand new Haggis Hedgehog and Family yarn pack!
