My Mama Knits is Moving!

We will be moving over the holidays, so the etsy shop is taking a hiatus and will be shut after 30th November 2016 until the New Year.

If you are in the Glasgow area you can still catch me at the Etsy Made Local event 3rd Dec at The Briggat. Until then I hope everyone has holidays filled with joy and look forward to dyeing up new colourways in the new digs. I’d also like to give a big thanks to everyone who supported my fibre adventures this year through purchases, kind comments and encouragement in general. It really has meant so much to me.


So many indie dyers. One email.
