Last Dance on the Beach

I can’t believe I can talk about this, finally!  Today is the day!  Scheepjes has just revealed the final images of the Last Dance on the Beach CAL which starts on April 20.

Scheepjes CAL 2016, Last Dance on the Beach. This is the beautiful Dance in the Rain colourway.

Scheepjes, together with a group of wonderfully talented designers (myself included!) have created the most beautiful CAL, based on my friend Marinke Slump’s last, unfinished design.

Marinke’s death hit very hard last year, so when I was offered the opportunity to participate in this last, beautiful tribute I couldn’t not take part. The results are spectacular.  It’s a design full of love, full of dreams, full of hope.

There are three gorgeous colourways, Dance on the Beach, Dance in the Sea, and Dance under the Stars.  I keep swinging back and forth between all three, unable to pick a favourite.

There will be kits available to buy on April 1, and the CAL will start on April 20.  There will be two kits in each colourway available, one will be the Luxury Kit, which is filled with the gorgeous Scheepjes Merino Soft, and the other will be using their Colour Crafter Premium Acrylic.  So there will be a kit to fit everyone’s price point.  The Basis Kit will retail for 43.40 euros, and the Luxury will retail for 159.90 euro.  2 euros from the sale of each kit will be donated to charities for mental health both in the Netherlands and the UK. Here’s what’s inside:

The CAL will run for 14 weeks and each new installment will be released as a PDF on Wednesday afternoons (CET).

In the Benelux you can get hold of the kits via the wonderful Scheepjes stockistsScheepjes stockists, or internationally via Wool Warehouse, Deramores, and Paradise Fibers in the US.

Are you going to join us?  It’ll be the most wonderful shared experience.
