Postcard: March


Postcard: March

 

Welcome to our monthly series - Postcard! We hope to inspire, encourage, and educate you about our company and take a little behind-the-scenes peek at what's happening in Woolberry!

What is in the postcard series? I'm glad you asked! Each month your postcard will include:
 
Our Month in Review - This will be a place where we share a little behind the scenes peek at the family behind Woolberry and I'll share what's been on my needles this month.
Happenings - This is where all shop news will be listed included shop updates and any KALs joining on. As well we will chat about any new products that will be coming to the shop.
Woolberry Wardrobe - Each month we will show you what the Wardrobe box will include for that month including a photo of the sample knit up for you to visualize!
Spotlight - This section will range from some of our favorite projects knit in our yarn by our lovely customers to our favorite products to really anything we feel is worth sharing!
Self-Care Challenge - This section is truly my favorite. Each month I will share a different little challenge that I hope you will join me in. Make 2019 a year where you care for your soul, mind, and body. Please do not feel pressured to join along, but I would love if you did!

Our Shop
Our Month In Review:
 
February was one of the biggest months in the shop and we cannot help but be overjoyed and so thankful to all of you for your continued support of our small family business! From the very bottom of our hearts...THANK YOU!!! Apart from the shop, we were able to go on a date (YES!) for the first time in about 9 months. It was a wild night consisting of The Lego 2 Movie and a dance party in the car on the way home. Isn't that the best though? Those simple little moments together that you remember for years. Other than that, February was pretty uneventful...those long winter days. We have shoveled, scraped, and dug our way out of our driveway one too many times this winter, so I am hoping next month's review will include...IT FINALLY FEELS LIKE SPRING! Fingers crossed...at least it means I get to wear all my warm knitwear for a little while longer. Silver lining!

March Happenings


KAL news: #woolberryscrapalong is over! The winners of the KAL were announced over in our Raverly Group so make sure to check in to see if you were one of the winners! Thank you so much for everyone who joined in, it was so fun seeing all those scrappy projects finished!
 
March 7: UPDATE: Woolberry Wardrobe - Piece of Silver Release

March 14: UPDATE: Gilmore Girls Club, Very Berry Club, and a BRAND NEW club (more details to come...but it is SO FUN! Rhys plays quite a role in this club....hint, hint.)

March 21: UPDATE: In-Stock Update: NEW Spring Collection on all lace weight and fingering weight bases, NEW sock sets, RESTOCK of Berry Suri, Berry Mohair, Berry Sock, and Berry Merino.

Wondering why we only have ONE In-Stock Update now? We have switched to a more stream-lined update system so that we can create really high-quality products for all of you (and not lose our sanity while doing it!). Make sure to mark your calendars!
 

Woolberry Wardrobe

The idea behind Woolberry Wardrobe is to create timeless garments that will be staples in your wardrobe. Items you will reach for everyday. And items that make you feel truly beautiful. 
March's Wardrobe will be Piece of Silver by Veera Välimäki

There will be two box options:

1. Essential Box: Includes yarn to create the garment and a pattern info card.
2. Complete Box: Essential box PLUS Woolberry-Exclusive stitch markers, darning needle, Lavender + Magnolia wool wash, Hand-Roasted Single-Origin Coffee, "Me Made" garment labels by Kylie and The Machine. AND a Knitter's Best Friend neck and shoulder relief roller ball.

All items have been hand-selected by us to ensure the perfect knitting experience. Each month there will be a special curated item included in the box that has been hand-selected by us. Our curated item for this month is our in-house made Knitter's Best Friend neck and shoulder relief roller ball. This roller ball is features a special blend of peppermint, wintergreen, clove bud, and helichrysum  perfect for those aches and pains we all get when we knit. In addition this blend of oils can also help boost energy and help ward off those winter blues. It's truly a magical blend! Like always, we only use high-quality 100% therapeutic-grade essential oils. 

All sizes will be available on a dyed-to-order basis. Keep an eye out on Instagram to see the official reveal of the Complete Box items including what colorways will be available. 

*Pattern is not included in the boxes so that the designers receive 100% compensation for their hard work.
 

Self-Care Challenge

Okay makers, we had two pretty intense self-care challenges for January and February, so this month I think we should do something fun and simple!

For March, my challenge to you is to take one hour each week purely for your own enjoyment! Maybe you love to bake, but haven't had the time OR you have a dress you have been wanting to sew, but keep putting off. Maybe there is a class at your local craft shop that you have been wanting to take OR a social knit night you've been eyeing! Maybe it's even as simple as treating yourself to a cup of coffee at your local coffee shop and spending some time just in the quiet - knitting and taking in the sights and smells. Whatever it may be, take a little time for yourself. Let loose, go crazy, just be willing to be kind to yourself.

Until next time,

Bethany and the Woolberry Fiber Crew
