There have been so many high lights of 2011 for Peggy's Collection
I was featured as a designer on affinity yarns and I also have patterns for sale on ravelry too. I attended a vintage fair where I was a retailer and you can read more about this in my previous blog entries. loved the whole atmosphere and met some amazing people.
I was very honoured to be asked to feature in the vintage life magazine where I designed some cute slippers and I have been asked back for the next issue out on the 5th January too.
I have also been featured on numerous blogs this year and I would like to thank you all for including Peggy's Collection onto your blogs it really means a lot.
Another big moment of 2011 was my first photo shoot and I would like to thank everyone involved. It was a great experience and I am looking forward to the next one. You can also read and see all the photographs from the shoot on my previous blog entry.
I have also opened an etsy shop for Peggy's Collection and I am also selling through asos marketplace too. You can also order garments from my website too.
I have also been working with a lot of charities this year which includes making knitted poppy brooches and selling the pattern for British forces network. Also I auctioned a scarf for Wallace and gromits childrens foundation. The local charity for movember also had one of my chunky scarves for their auction. I have also been taking part in zumba lessons with Mr Dod a local instructor who is fabulous. He was holding a zumba party for nelsons journey charity which I also donated a scarf for the raffle.
I was also ms October for world of wool calendar too which was lovely to be asked to do this the photographs look fabulous too.
