new pollika display unit available.

goodmorning all!

how have you been, it sure been a while since we last spoke. things over here have been great very busy and we aren't complaining. we are finding our way around ravelry slowly but surely, but wow what a knitting community that is. its incredible how many avenues there are now to find patterns and get inspired and simply just chat to other people over your favorite needles or stitches, its great.

earlier on this year we decided it was very important to have a unique pollika display unit, tina came up with her own design and we are happy to announce that last week we received the final finished product. its absolutely beautiful, you might even say a piece of sturdy art. it was handcrafted here in vancouver which is great because it supports our canadian economy.
its made of wrought iron and has a beautiful copper texture finish, pictured here on the left.

now, on a very serious note, is seems that some of our not regularly mentioned staff have had enough of working behind the scenes and would like some well deserved (i suppose) attention. infact i believe they are on strike and have gone so far as to sit on our keyboard so we cant get anything done. so without further delay i would like to introduce you to two other members of the pollika team, patty and emily.

yes indeed they work very hard, they are furry, they are sweet and they can be quite demanding when it comes to getting there space even if we are very busy trying to accomplish things. patty (left) is more a shawl pin girl while emily, (right) is a lover of yarn.
and so we apologize to you ladies for disregarding your existance within our ever growing company, your two of the best co-workers we could ask for. keep knitting, keep happy and healthy, and we hope you are blessed with some sunshine where ever you are! :)

Imagine a day at work where you surround yourself with unique Swiss designed shawl pins, gorgeous buttons created in Holland, oh so precious yarns from the UK, and fabulous high quality felt and felting accessories, plus wonderfully, eclectic, full of life and spirit fibre artists. Knitting, felting and crochet it happens all in Pollika’s world. Just so you know English is my second language, here and there my fast thinking brain cells get confused and infected with my first language: Dutch. So, most posts are going to be written in ‘Denglish’. The will be accompanied by Lesley’s photography talent, that likes me to believe they will be clear, inspiring and bring a smile to your face! We welcome your comments! Tina
