Isn't technology wonderful?

Not always.

We've got a wee problem with our auto-email system, so DON'T PANIC if you don't recieve your normal confirmation email when you make an order. We are still recieving your orders but we'll need to send you a manual email to let you know we're processing them, and we're not always as quick as the auto response. Your patience is appreciated.

We've disabled the 'contact us' section of the shop while we get things fixed so if you do need to contact us for anything just email us at or message us through our Facebook page. We'll get back to you as soon as we can.

Happy crocheting and knitting.
