Ground Walnut Shell

Our price: £4.00

If you know, you know!

If you don't, I am here to enlighten you that ground walnut shell is an excellent filler for pincushions and heat packs. Ground to approximately granulated sugar grain size, the shells have a weightiness to them so pins and needles sit upright in a filled pincushion, with the bonus that the act of pushing them in keeps them sharp. That weightiness also mean that a heat pack will shape itself to the body.

Packed in a brown paper bag, tied up with string, a pack weighs 200gm.

The pincushion shown is 12cm square and contains just under 200gm.

Early on Day Three - before the crowds
Interesting mix of people and some great new contacts made today. And the yarn supplies are shrinking 🤗
Had a grand first day at Harrogate @theknittingandstitchingshows and this is the only pic I took. The hand worked back of this lovely customer’s jacket! 

(To be fair, my phone was pretty busy being a card machine😊)
Set up and (almost) ready for Day One tomorrow.

With huge thanks to my star setter-upper who put up with my pernickety ways and took this pic.

Find us in the Textile Gallery, Hall M, together with lots of lovely artists and makers.

Almost finished packing for @theknittingandstitchingshows Harrogate but wee niggly things to sort yet. Nice to be this far long in the process though. 
Back to prep for @theknittingandstitchingshows in Harrogate next week.
Yarns of all sizes now packed! 
If you are coming to the show I will have some serious yarny bargains for you😉
