All you have to do is head over to our Facebook page and like our pasty picture (it’s the one above of Poppy posing in Mousehole!) and make sure you like our page too. If we can get 500 likes on the picture by the time Poppy has her next pasty (that’s Tuesday 25th march lunchtime!!) then we’ll choose ten winners at random.

So if you want to share the post too that might get it to the 500 likes quicker!

Alongside the catalogue going out you’ll notice an array of brand new products appearing on our website over the next couple of days. We’ve been working hard over the summer to add even more great gifts and things you need and want to our collection and now at last, after trialling them in our St Ives shop over the summer, we can introduce them to you! We hope you love the new things as much as we do and as ever, we’d love to hear what you think.

3 tea towels for £20? yes please!

3 tea towels for £20? yes please!

In case you’ve missed the offer on our homepage you can currently treat yourself (or someone very deserving!) to 3 tea towels for just £20 on our website! These fly out from our St Ives shop and we know they’ve been framed, turned into cushions, turned into aprons, and sometimes, wait for it, used to dry up (perish the thought!) So make sure you stock up now, no code needed as discount will be automatically applied at checkout when you have 3 or more.

Craft business heroes (like Poppy Treffry) and a little competition

When we first started, down here at Treffry Towers, we had to do a lot of learning ‘on the job’. We made mistakes (and mostly we learnt from them) and we talked to lots of people in lots of places to get advice and tips on running a business, cause nobody knows like those who’ve been through it. So when we were approached by Alison McNicol (founder of stitchclub) to be involved in her book of craft business tips and advice we were really pleased to be able to give a bit of advice back! And we were very excited when we found out that Alison was producing not one but two books, and we were to be considered Craft Business Heroes, it’s got a certain ring to it don’t you think?! And now both books are out and about for you to buy and peruse, Available at Amazon and also in our little shop in St Ives.

If your feeling super modern you can also buy both books for your kindle! (Which of course you can keep warm with one of our kindle cosies!!)

If you fancy a chance to win our lovely cat kindle cosy and a free download of both of Alison McNicols books you can enter our competition here http://eepurl.com/iX4qj but do be warned, it’s a tricky one!!
