For Donna - if you address it to the UK that should be fine. Though 'England' would probably get here without a problem too!

Donna

Trying to mail a teddy bear for YARNDALE,but the address doesn't say what country. Is it UK or England. My post office won't mail it without a country. I am in the USA. Please help.

Has it been seven years already?! So glad to see how Yarndale has grown so, congrats to all that work hard to pull it off. Love the lamp post wraps, especially the sunflower one ( I have a soft spot for sunflowers). In fact I've just finished a few for my fall decorations by cutting narrow strips of yellow fabric and tying them onto a canning ring and adding a bit of batting and brown fabric around the canning lid and adding those to the centers, a dowel rod for the stem (painted green) and a green strip of fabric for the leaves. They turned out cute if I do say so myself. Well done with the bear pattern, super cute! xxxxxxxxxxxx

What a wonderful post! You are such an inspiration Lucy, and so generous in sharing your unique and beautiful designs.

Sharon L DeHaemers

I, too, am in the US. I'd love to be able to come to your Yarndale festival someday! But for now I would like to know if the brochure will be available to us, also. I'd love to make some of the little crocheted balls.

Thanks!

Eilidh

Just to say that in the past I've made small bears for the Baby Pack Project, in South Africa. A lovely lady called Val Bailey runs it. You can find the details here: http://babypackproject.tripod.com/

Kind regards, Eilidh

Lucy I love the little purse charms but I am lost when you say bring the yarn up into the space between the two tied yarns. can you post a picture of that process??

Dawn

What a wonderful post! You are such an inspiration Lucy, and so generous in sharing your unique and beautiful designs. The teddies are so jolly and what a lovely thing to do. Your colourful photographs are always so uplifting and you have given people like me the confidence to learn to crochet. Good luck with Yarndale and thank you so much for all the help and inspiration you provide in your super blog!

Ilse

Just a quick question: in the knitted pattern a sewn bag is requested. Will you use / need these bags as well? I do have more fabric than acrylic yarn... 😀

Maria João

Love the sheeps! so cute!

Stefanie

Wow! Just came across your post and I’m so glad I did. I’m so in awe of your creative mind and energy. Love your light post wraps, everyone of them. That sunflower just makes me smile and I could see having one hanging in my home.
I also love the bag tassels. Is it possible to get the brochure with the pattern? I live in the US.
And on top of everything you do for Yarndale you manage to do such a wonderful charitable event. Those bears are too darn cute. I am going to try and make one. I’m mostly a knitter but I do dabble in crochet every now and then. 😊
Thank you so much for sharing your ideas and creativity. You are one amazing lady and I’ll be checking in often for inspiration.

Ida

I really really really like your
"Tadah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"-picture. And the rest!
You have an amazing creative skill.

Dear Lucy, I wanted to tell you how much I have enjoyed this posting. I am an Australian living in the Netherlands. I run a handwork (and afternoon tea) group for lonely elderly people. The oldest person in the group is 92. We make all kinds of beanies, blankets and toys which are sent to sick aboriginal people in Alice Springs, Northern Territoty (Australia). The group likes the idea that they are helping others. Your post has given me all kinds of wonderful ideas for new (small) projects. Best wishes from Helen

Denise Fordyce

Thanks for telling us about Mercy Ships. Wow, what an amazing organisation! There are so many people doing great things in the world, isn't it a shame the focus is always on the rotten stuff! It makes me smile to think of each of those children getting a happy cuddly teddy.

Gee

Great idea to crochet teddies, have been knitting them for many years. Your blankets converted me to a part time crocheter.

Don't follow social media so have only just seen teddies, will crochet ASAP as I know socks I knitted some time ago have to be with you next week so Christine can pick them up, I have been waiting to save postage. Could you please put the charity make on your blog earlier next year for people like me? If not don't worry as I know what it is to be a busy mum, mine are 37 and 39 now.

Catherine bittner

I am in the US. Will I be able to get a copy of the brochure with the pattern with the little balls bag charm.

Debbie Skretting

Hi Lucy! I just want to thank you for all your posts. Because of you and your blog, when my 3 daughters decided to treat me to a trip anywhere of my choice for my birthday last year - I chose to come to Yarndale! So my 3 daughters and myself will be coming from Norway, staying in a cottage there in Skipton from Thursday before to Monday after. We (especially me) are sooo excited! Thank you so much again for being my inspiration. So looking forward to meeting you!

Vijayashree Deepak

Hi have you ever given a thought about “dream
Catchers” ? They are small and you can get as creative as you can in a “mandala” ish way and also add your little trinkets too

What a great project these bears are serving. They would be excellent projects so many difficulties that people are going through - thinking of children living in shelters, children from homes destroyed by fire, even just children at first day of school being away from home. My own granddaughter would love a tassel to attach to her backpack. You certainly do have a creative genius living inside.

Jane Dorfman

What a wonderful party of bears! I think kids will just love them.

Jo Howes

Oooh, thank you Lucy, I was just about to start combing the net for a method for making tassles xx

Nina Kellock

Absolutely loving those bears so will definitely be making one, or two, or ......
And I love the sheep wrap too, specially because you have my favouritest sheep on there, right at the bottom, the Herdwick.
Gosh, you must feel overwhelmed with it all at times, and weary to the bone, in a good way though. And looking forward to a rest after the event too!

CJ

Goodness, you have been busy. The sheep lamp post cover is absolutely divine. The bears are great, I had a plain red one just like that when I was little, made by a favourite relative. I had him so long and he got so thin, but oh how I loved him. No doubt the Yarndale bears will be too. Nicely done. CJ xx

Tonia

We have tickets! This will be our second visit and we've booked workshops this time too. Really looking forward to it!

Joan

Love seeing all the Bears , I've completed my two and will be posting them ASAP, I have attended yarndale from the beginning and loved meeting you in person, I'm unable to make it this year so I love catching up with everything on your blog , it looks as if it's going to be a Hugh success again
