With the difficult year 2020 now behind us I simply want to thank you all so much for your support in my first full year of entrepeurship. My one-woman run business would not be here if it were not for you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, it meant the world to me to. To receive all of your messages, support and orders and to share with you the love for natural yarns to all corners of the globe. It was so exciting to see The Dutch Yarn Barn take off!
I have much to share in 2021 and despite despite numerous cancellations in 2020, I am excited about new creative projects, new Dutch yarns and the hope of a better year ahead. I am counting on your continuing support in this year to come.
To allow me a little time to recharge my batteries and to prepare for the forthcoming changes that 2021 will bring, I will be away from the office until Monday and not available until Monday 11th January. The webshop will remain open for purchasing but dispatch will not resume until Monday 4th January. I do have some announcements forthcoming though, so look out for more newsletters over the next few months.
It has been an absolute delight seeing the highlights of
2020 unfold before my eyes:
- Meeting you has been amazing, Live and online!
- TDYB yarns were sold at festivals in The Netherlands and the UK
- Eco-friendly crafting parlour Cross & Woods warmly took my yarns in!
- TDYB babies were adopted by Woolhalla Stephen & Penelope by Stephen West!
- My first Dutch heritage yarn DIJK was produced, 100% ecofriendly & local!
- I started a You Tube Channel (what a challenge!) and made 2 episodes!
- Dutch designers @LaVisch, @Amster_daph and @beauxknits collaborated with me and designed patterns with my Dutch yarns!
- TDYB's yarn & tea concept clubs sold extremely well and brought much joy!
- TDYB participated in two major online festivals: Woollinn and Barcelona Knits!
- TDYB was featured in BreiMagazine, Libelle Handmade (Netherlands)
and in the well renowed MAKING magazine no. 10 (US)!
Some postal services have been delayed by Corona-virus, but I hope any remaining Yarn Barn babies that are still in transit will find their way to their new home very soon.
I hope you are keeping warm and well for now and I wish you much happy knitting and happy crafting in 2021!
with warmest wishes
