BECCMARK October Newsletter

Hello everyone. Hope this newsletter finds you all well. October is now here and we have to face a few facts. The nights are now closing in and we change the clocks on the last weekend of the month. (for those of you who get confused we gain an hour so clocks go 1 hour back). Good news is we gain an hour in bed, bad news winter approaches!

But this becomes a busy time of the year. Starting with Halloween. Even though it’s not been greatly celebrated in this country, it seems to be increasing in popularity. Personally I can’t get my head round Halloween, but this doesn’t mean I and my fellow crafters ignore this event. There is always a few witches, black cats and pumpkins about!

Even though it is, of course, in November, I always feel Bonfire night seems to latch on to the end of October. Probably more to do with the late afternoon, early evening daylight totally disappearing! Now this one I do like, as it celebrates part of our great British history, – or is it because I love toffee apples – probably!!

One thing we all start doing is getting ready for Christmas. Sorry I had to mention it! Christmas seems to start extremely early in the shops these days but most of us at BECCMARK only start bringing our Christmas stock out in October, with normally the full whack in November. I think most of us feel it’s better to do this as by December we are all fed up with all that Christmas brings, and that would be a great shame.


Of course the weather turns colder and we all turn to woolly jumpers, socks, gloves and other such items to keep us dry and warm. Which leads me into introducing one of our crafters. Mabel knits all manner of such items as well as baby items to keep the tiny ones warm. This lady can even put her claim to fame when she was approached by a media company to do some knitted booties to become a prop in the last series of Endeavour. She’s never let us forget this ever since!! Her stall is one of the most colourful the quality of her knitting and crochet is impeccable. Even her delightful knit wear goes to the USA and Australia to name but a few. So if you’re in need of a warm woolly hat, gloves, scarf and other such items she is the lady to see.


One of the other knitters in our collection is me. It was my Mother who was my inspiration. She had an amazing amount of skills? She was a brilliant cook, gardener and needle worker. Her self efficient skills would make Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall look like an amateur! If I had half her skills I would be a happy woman. So when I gave up work to look after my late parents I decided to turn to cross stitch for a hobby and then to knitting as well. I’m happy to say that both my parents saw some of my achievements and thought they were – in their words – amazing. So when they passed away I decided to turn my skills into a small business. I now focus on knitted toys and cross stitch greetings cards. Toys come in all shapes, sizes and colours and if customers want something more personal then I can make them to order. The same goes for the cross stitched cards. So with Christmas just around the corner come along and see if I have something different for your Christmas shopping. Just remember, I was knitting Santa in June when it was 25 degrees outside!!

Well I must go and get those needles clicking so until next time keep well and safe and hopefully we will see you all at the next BECCMARK .
