1 Today!

Today Coco Kids celebrates it's first birthday! Happy Birthday to us!

Exactly 1 year ago today on the 1st of November 2009, our blog was launched and Kate, Ali and myself were all ready to take on custom knitting orders.

The past year has seen our needles busy keeping our customers happy. We've added a lot more items to our list of items we can knit (and there's still more we need to update as well) and we've met a lot of wonderful knitters and customers.

As a thank you to our friends and followers, we're going to be having a first birthday sale very soon. We'll be adding a new tab to the blog and we'll be loading some one off specials at 8pm on the Thursday the 4th of November- maybe just what you're after for a Christmas, birthday or new baby pressie.

If you're not already one of our Facebook friends but you want to be kept up to date with when the stocking will go up - why not 'like' our business page, and you'll be kept in the loop (just click on our Facebook Badge top lefthand column on our blog)

The Big Day

Well Saturday was the Big Day we've been working towards for several weeks now. It was very exciting getting prepared and setting up the table with all of our lovely items in one place. Julia and I missed Kate on the day, but hopefully she'll be able to join us for the next one. Besides, she was busy celebrating her daughter's 5th birthday - a major milestone!

Julia and I had a wonderful time at Craft 2.0 and met so many lovely people. The feedback was fabulous, with many wonderful compliments coming our way. We've had great support from all our friends and family leading up to this, so a huge thank you to everyone :)

Despite the very warm weather, we managed to make some good sales, and are very happy overall with our first ever Craft 2.0! Craft 2.0 is such a wonderful craft market to be involved in and we are in awe of the amazing organisational skills involved in managing such a large and popular event.
