Did anyone else have to scrape ice from the car this morning? It’s getting chilly out there. Our thoughts have turned to getting cosy, and we’ve found some very nice things out there to warm up your day.
As t-shirt makers, we are also big fans of the winter layer. This basic but stylish pattern for a cover up is available from The Velvet Acorn on Etsy – crochet versions are also available, and patterns for all kinds of winter woolies come in styles which work for boys or girls.
One for the mums and dads, here. Cashmere socks are a staple of my winter evenings. This oatmeal textured pair are from Toast, which is a fine purveyor of all things toasty-making.
Although Brora.co.uk is new to me, the brand has been making fine cashmere products in the Scottish Borders for more than 200 years. They also have a very generous sale right now, with this traditional blanket for children reduced from £72 to £45.
Like us, Lucy Farfort has been busy, but found a minute to post this time-saving pizza recipe on her blog. Yum! We recommend it followed up by jelly and ice cream, obviously 😉
And we have a busy weekend ahead of us – you’ll find Jo here, at the Rowdy Roddy Ghoulish Gathering at the Sparklehorse in Glasgow and Katy here, enjoying herself with the family in Dublin for the weekend.
At the time of writing this, we have around 36 hours to go on our indiegogo campaign. We’re nearly at the end! We’ve been running this campaign since August 31st, which seems like ages ago. You might be wondering what’s next on the horizon for Mimi and Will. And, if you don’t reserve a t-shirt now, when will your next chance to buy come along?
Well, one of the key reasons for running the pre-order campaign was to help us build inventory in the most popular sizes and designs of our ethically-sourced t-shirts. So for every design we sell now, we’ve ordered a bunch more in that size and design for our online shop, which is coming very soon to mimiandwill.com
We’re also liaising with the designers who have contributed designs for the rest of our first 12-shirt collection, these shirts will go on sale in the New Year – purchasers of our colouring book will get a sneak peek at these designs first!
Talks are also ongoing with a handful of carefully-selected independent boutiques to bring the new collection to a high street near you. But if you can’t wait for that to happen, place your pre-order now!
Remember you can buy a colouring book, badge, single (earlybird price) t-shirt, or even a year’s worth! If you’ve already reserved one or more t-shirts, we’re in the process of contacting buyers to reserve their preferred shirt size and design. We’ll be sharing your 10% store discount with pre-orderers once our online shop is up and running, too.
If you’re a designer, maker, writer, shopkeeper, blogger or anything else-er who would like to work with us, please drop us a line using the ‘contact us’ form, DM us on Twitter or catch up with us on Facebook. We’d love to hear from you!
