Mamie et Moi is looking for a local storage space !

| Comments Off on Mamie et Moi is looking for a local storage space !
Dear friends who follow Mamie’s adventures, today we need you, more than ever!
We are looking to switch storage spaces in the beginning of October — a space within Luxembourg City or nearby. Our needs in terms of priority are as follows:
•a small, safe, clean, lockable storage space in order for us to keep our materials and our stock (wool, products, accessories and books). The space we have used until now measured +/- 10 m2 and suited our needs quite well.
•If possible we would love to have the possibility of installing a table for 2 workspaces so that we can have a (small) office for the ASBL.
•if we are really lucky, we will find a lovely room where we can gather with our knitting mamies on a regular basis as well as hold our regular one-to-one knitting lessons.
•if perfection is within our grasp, this location would have a window or display space where we could show off our wonderful Mamie et Moi offerings!
If you own or know of a space which matches even one of these requirements, or have information to pass along, please contact us quickly: info@mamieetmoi.com or by telephone on +352 691 822 511 (Camille)
A million thanks for your help,
Camille, Cristina and the Knitting Grannies.

World Wide Knit In Public Day 2018

| Comments Off on World Wide Knit In Public Day 2018

Join us at the number one knitting meetup in Luxembourg, on the 9th of June from 11:00-12:00!

Whether just curious or totally addicted, you are all welcome.

Every year for the past three years, Mamie et Moi has joined forces with Woolinspires to share our ideas and our resources in celebrating Knit in Public Day in Luxembourg.  Our joint objective is to gather together both the beginners and the experienced knitters around our common interest in knitting, to bring it into the street, make it visible, fun and participatory. 

Why?  Because we are convinced that knitting just needs a makeover in order to fulfill its path to being an efficient crossroads to forge links between people, nationalities and generations.

For 2018 we want to bring knitting into the heart of the city center and so we are organizing the first “HappeningTricot” that Luxembourg has ever seen.

How:
Participants meet at 11 am sharp
Benches will be installed on the Place du Theatre so that participants can sit and knit for the next hour. Those who wish to may leave an empty spot next to them in order to welcome those passers-by who would like to stop and learn about and how to knit.
At noon, everyone is thanked, cheered, and be free to pursue their day.

When and where :

Place du Théâtre, L-2613 Luxembourg , Saturday, the 9th of June -11 am -12 am

 

Mamie knits for Hollywood !

| Comments Off on Mamie knits for Hollywood !
Are you sitting comfortably? Mamie is going to tell you an unbelievable (but true) story that happened only a few months ago…
Everything started back in September 2016, thanks to Emmanuelle de Villemejane, Mamie et Moi’s super stylist: “Vincent, a friend who is a costume designer for the movies needs hand-knitted woolen caps for a movie that he’s working on. Do you think that your Granny network would be able to recreate a series of 19th century winter caps? A lot of them? In very little time?”  And how! A new challenge for our Grannies, we’re on it!
Like you we were dying to know more about the movie in question, so when we found out that our knits were going to be featured in the new TV series produced by Ridley Scott, we had to work really hard to “keep calm and carry on” and not start dancing on the tabletop! The series, called The Terror, inspired by actual events, takes place in 1847: a British Royal Navy expedition seeking the Northwest Passage find themselves trapped in freezing ice and soon find themselves under attack by a mysterious creature… (Sensitive souls and those under 12 should stay far away, you’re not likely to enjoy this!)
At any rate, that’s how Paulette, Maria, Mihaela, Renée, Miriam, Catherine, Madeleine, Astrid and others, our Grannies in Lorraine, Luxembourg and Belgium started knitting dozens of welsh wigs, navy balaclavas and giant scarves in raw woolen yarn in order to stay as faithful to the garments of the period. Between October 2016 and March 2017, more than 150 accessories all knitted by Mamie et Moi were shipped via Fedex to different studios in London and in Budapest. Once delivered, our headgear were “distressed” in order to render them even more authentic, aged, used.
The first episode of the series has already aired on the US television network AMC in March 2018, and there we saw our knits onscreen. This time we really danced on the tables!
We’d like to send out our thanks to Vincent and Emmanuelle whose collaboration allowed us to participate in this fabulous experience — this was a real source of motivation, of pride and of optimism for our Grannies and ourselves.
Just a word to the costume designers and accessory buyers of Luxembourg and Hollywood… Mamie is ready and willing to relive the adventure!

The new gift card !

| Comments Off on The new gift card !

It’s not always easy to pick a size, a color, a style, especially when it comes to a special hand-made knit, full of meaning… you don’t want to get it wrong!

That’s why Mamie, who is always has your best interests in mind, has developed a gift card solution that you can offer to the person you choose.

How does it work?

first select the gift card in our e-show, you pick the amount that you want to attribute to it (20,30, 40… up to 100 euros), pay online and then enter the address that you want the card shipped to (directly to them or directly to you)

The following information will be printed on the card: the gift-giver, the total amount on the card and the term of validity (1 year). The recipient will also find a unique code written on the card. In order to redeem their gift card, all they have to do is enter that code in our e-shop at the time of purchase

Good to know: the value of the card can be applied to the total cost of the shopping cart! For instance, a 50 euro card can be used not only to order a knitted item alone; with that value, the recipient can buy a 45-euro item and use the balance to cover the signed-for shipping costs within Luxembourg.

So now that we’ve got your interest, just click here to access our online gift cards!

Big hugs from Mamie !

 

New: You can now pay with credit/debit card online !

| Comments Off on New: You can now pay with credit/debit card online !

Mamie fait sa rentrée au “De Lokale Maart”

| Comments Off on Mamie fait sa rentrée au “De Lokale Maart”

Pour certains, la rentrée est un mauvais moment à passer… Pour d’autres, comme Mamie, c’est tout le contraire !

La rentrée est synonyme de nouveaux tricots, nouveaux projets, l’envie de reprendre ses aiguilles pour travailler les plus belles laines se fait sentir ; on a hâte de recroiser dans la rue des petites têtes coiffées de bonnets tricotés par Paulette, des bébés dans leur poussette, bien au chaud dans une veste réalisée par Franca Maria, Mihaela, Renée, …. Bref, Mamie est ravie, en cette rentrée 2017, qui s’annonce riche en évènements:

Le 1er rendez-vous que nous vous fixons est pour le 30 septembre et 1er octobre prochains, à De Lokale Maart. Organisé par Let’z Go Local dans le cadre du Season Opening des Rotondes, ce marché des créateurs, designers et producteurs locaux du Luxembourg est un incontournable de l’agenda de Mamie. Nous y aurons un joli corner dédié aux accessoires d’hiver pour enfants (bonnets, moufles, capes, snoods,… en laine bio) mais aussi notre nouvelle layette pour bébé, en pur mérino italien, d’une douceur à faire craquer les plus réfractaires. Ca sera également l’occasion de vous présenter notre nouveau packaging, mais…. n’en disons pas plus. Le mieux c’est encore de venir nous voir sur place :

De Lokale Maart
Le 30 septembre et 1er octobre 2017
De 10h à 18h aux Rotondes, avenue des Rotondes à Luxembourg Bonnevoie

Mamie et Moi and Les Createurs ont du Coeur

| Comments Off on Mamie et Moi and Les Createurs ont du Coeur

What is Les Createurs ont du Coeur?

It’s…
A charity sale organised by the Arcat association which has been going on since 1993. The biggest names in Luxury, Fashion, Beauty and Lifestyle have responded in kind to the challenge and stand together with Arcat.
Quality products are donated to the association and then sold on to the public at bargain prices. Les Créateurs ont du Cœur allows Arcat to gather funds for the benefit of families and persons in need; and to alert the public to the fight against AIDS.
Since 1985, a multifunctional team accompanies people living with HIV in precarious situations.
For the 2017 edition, Mamie et Moi has dug deep into their treasure chest and offered the jewels of its past collection.
