Every month a special package is carefully designed and assembled for our Woolbox members. Inspiration for the colours and textures comes from a photo, which is also included. The thought that goes into the development of each box results in attention to even the smallest detail and enables our team to create truly beautiful combinations. When the box is completed, it is then sent out to our members who are delighted by the ever-changing selection of fabric and textures arriving on their doorstep.
Last month, the creativity spoke to me personally. The colours were inspired by a photograph of fishing buoys, a truly maritime theme. Having spent some years living on the south shore of Nova Scotia, for me, it brought back the crisp salt air and the conversation of fishermen on the wharf as they carefully mended treasured nets, weathered and callused fingers weaving an intricate pattern of rope. Childhood memories of rocks, gulls, starfish and sea urchins-treasures of the sea. In my heart I still hear the mournful cry of the lighthouse, always comforting.
Such is the magic of our Woolbox and every month a unique photo conjures up fresh inspiration. Intrigued? For more details, click under ‘Wool’ on our website and become part of the fun! -Angie
