Price and Venue Changes

Due to the upcoming EU VAT changes I have to make a couple of changes to my online pattern sales business. Thankfully Ravelry have partnered with LoveKnitting who will deal with the cross border VAT. Its brilliant news that means I can keep this side of the business going but naturally paying the VAT and the increased commission associated with it mean I need to raise my prices a little.

The new laws come into effect on 1st of January so I will be the making changes ahead of time (so I get to enjoy Christmas and New Year!)

From 18th December my prices will increase slightly to £3 for simple accessories and £4 for garments, shawls and more complex accessories.

With immediate effect I am closing my Craftsy pattern store as they have not made the neccesary changes needed. You’ll still be able to buy my patterns direct from this website, from my Ravelry shop or from

I think these prices still represent great value for money – around the price of a posh coffee for hours of knitting or crochet pleasure. But if you were thinking of purchasing its a good idea to grab it now before the price change!

    Thank you for all your helpful posts about these EU VAT changes. I will be removing my iBook from iTunes in the EU and start selling the patterns from the book individually on Loveknitting. It’s an annoying bit of law change, but thank goodness for workarounds like Loveknitting!
