Expected Shipping early May

Locket's Book & Craft Club is continuing in 2024 so we can share our joint passions for reading and making.

Every two months or so there will be a new book recommendation and the opportunity to pre-order the special craft box that I have put together to go with the book and come to a special Knit Group/Book Club meeting either in person at Lucy Locket Land or virtually via Zoom.

Please note, you will need to have signed up for the Craft Box to come to the Book Group meetings

The Craft Boxes will vary and you will be given an indication of what type of project it will contain.  You can also choose to sign up for each one or just whichever takes your fancy - there's no tie-in.

My 3rd book recommendation for 2024 is The Lost Bookshop by Evie Woods

I love this book and am enjoying it just as much as I read it now for the second time. It is described as “magical realism” and there are certainly magical elements, but the realism is strongly there too. It’s a book about the love of books but also about 2 young women, a century apart, who are fighting against oppression. It’s a beautiful story but it deals with some big issues too.

You can read it in any format you prefer - paperback, kindle, audio, library lend - whatever suits you and your lifestyle best.

This will be a knitting project (worked flat), a wearable accessory by a talented international designer 

or the Helleborus crochet shawl pattern by Alitzah Grant designs (I’m sharing what this option is in advance as it is a pattern I have shared before so you may already have purchased it from me) 

The exact contents of the craft box are secret but will include 

  • a 100g skein of my luxurious hand dyed Alpaca/Linen/Silk blend 4ply
  • a printed booklet of a pattern by an international designer 
  • Secret "extras”
  • in a tissue-lined box
  • plus entry to the in-person or virtual Book Group Meeting in June (dates to be discussed and confirmed to suit as many of you as possible)

The book itself is not included so you can choose your preferred format

see below for the Amazon synopsis

‘The thing about books,’ she said ‘is that they help you to imagine a life bigger and better than you could ever dream of.’

On a quiet street in Dublin, a lost bookshop is waiting to be found…

For too long, Opaline, Martha and Henry have been the side characters in their own lives.

But when a vanishing bookshop casts its spell, these three unsuspecting strangers will discover that their own stories are every bit as extraordinary as the ones found in the pages of their beloved books. And by unlocking the secrets of the shelves, they find themselves transported to a world of wonder… where nothing is as it seems.
