SQ Blog

Welcome one and all February 03 2014, 4 Comments

Come in, come in - have a good browse round.

The doors of the new shop are open to give you time to get your bearings, maybe set up your new account and to see where everything is kept. Once you're in and settled and it's starting to look familiar, I'll then add a little new hand-dyed yarn.

If you're a regular SQ shopper, you may notice some differences to the old shop.

  • it brings together the old website, shop and blog to one place. Don't forget to reset your Favorites or Bookmarks to the new website domain name - www.skeinqueenyarns.co.uk.
  • the photos are bigger and clearer, so you can better see what you're buying. They can be easily pinned to Pinterest, so please do.
  • if you click on Hand-dyed Yarn, you'll find a list of the yarn bases and prices but also Origin of Yarns information.
  • if you're interested in where to squidge the yarn in person, there's a Forthcoming Shows page under the Information tab.
  • can I politely suggest that initial caps are preferable to lower case when completing addresses in the new account.
  • if you hold a gift voucher for the old shop, please do get in touch and I will issue you with a new code for the new shop.
  • you'll notice that the new shop is set up to accept pounds sterling as Skein Queen is based in the UK. PayPal will do all the hard work if you're paying in another currency - check out Terms and Conditions for more info. on how it works.

There is a small amount of new hand-dyed yarn being added to the shop this Sunday at noon - and as it is less than two weeks until Unravel and I haven't started dyeing for it yet - the next shop update will be after that.

Huge thanks goes to Mr Orr for his stupendous effort and extra hours worked in getting the website up and running and thank you for bearing with us while we decorated and stocked up the new shop.

Please feel free to shower us with comments so that I don't get all lonely on this new, airy, spacious blog.

So all that remains is for me to cut the ribbon and I'm cracking an imaginary bottle of champagne on the nearest doorframe.
