fripperies and bibelots

I am completely and utterly delighted to now be stocking high quality stitch markers by fripperies and bibelots.

Sarah Simonds is based in Derby, UK and is a trained jeweller/silversmith with a passion for knitting. She creates beaded stitch markers and other knitting accessories and started selling her “sensationally sparkly” stitch markers back in July 2009. She completed a degree in Jewellery, Silversmithing and Allied Crafts and I feel very privileged to be working with her to bring you some of her unique, beautifully themed, high quality work for your knitting pleasure.

Her stitch markers contain superior quality beads, Swarovski crystals and she uses snag-proof solid closed rings. You can find them in the shop here and I think they’d make a perfect gift for a knitter friend.

And the top set pictured is EXCLUSIVE to Skein Queen – Sarah very cleverly sourced a hummingbird, a royal sceptre complete with Swarovski crystal, a crown and a royal drop pearl and put them together into this beautiful royal set. How very royal!

So, over the past few months I’ve brought you calendars, Addi needles, NovaSteel shawl pins and I think fripperies and bibelots is a perfect addition to the SQ shopping emporium and I hope you agree.

And for those of you waiting in eager anticipation for the next batch of hand-dyed Opulent to hit the shop, I’ve been very busy dyeing it up over the weekend and hope to have it in the shop before the end of the day it’s now in the shop – some in new colourways and perfect for knitting Lazy Sunday slouchy bedsocks.

    Oooh LOVE Opulent in Orchid! Will you be repeating this again? I bought the mag and love the bedsocks and want to do a pair for myself but wanted a bolder color than any opulent I own! The very first set of stitch markers are to die for!

  6. At this time it appears like Expression Engine is the preferred blogging platform available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?
