The Old Romance pattern sold out over the weekend but it's back in stock now. Keeping me warm as I work on a new pattern.
Sneak peek of a new pattern in the works, but if you can't wait until it comes out, there are lovely patterns in the shop.
Free pattern on my blog (veraandbess.blogspot.com) to make lovely Hearts and Flowers bunting or follow the link to find the blanket pattern. Still time to get hooking for Easter blush

About

Spreading the love of craft one kit at a time.

Vera and Bess were my grandmothers, both fondly known as Nan, both strong women who loved to make. I grew up wearing clothes made from recycled adult's dresses and had a dolls house with furniture that Vera made from matchboxes and fabric scraps. The purple velour armchair was amazing! ( It was the '70s, after all.) Bess was a patchworker and loved to crochet. With a mum who knits and sews and a quilting aunt, I was always going to be crafty and I have yet to meet a craft I don't like.

I have a head full of designs and ideas and craft kits are the perfect way to get those ideas out into the world. I am constantly working on new patterns and cannot go anywhere without a notebook to jot them down.

Vera and Bess, this shop, is my chance to share all the knowledge, skills and love, a place to honour the practice passed on from generation to generation and add some of my own to give to my children. I hope you love what you find here as much as I love making it.
