Transport was never really that much of an issue for me until I moved to Shetland. Now – as I suspect must be the case for just about every other person here ­­­– it is a really big deal. How we get around, on and off these islands has a significant impact on our lifestyles and our wallets, so it’s not surprising that hardly a
week passes without transport issues making the front pages of The Shetland Times.

In recent times, many of these afore-mentioned column inches have been devoted to lamenting the hugely inflated cost and unreliability of the airlines which provide our “lifeline” link with the mainland. Personally, I find air travel such a frustrating and dehumanising process, that I’d probably plump for the good old North boat even if flights off Shetland were cheap as chips and ran like clockwork.

Just before Christmas I took part in a Radio Shetland Speakeasy. When asked by host Davie Gardner what I thought Shetlanders could do to challenge the prohibitive cost of air travel, I suggested that everyone should take the boat instead. The rest of the panel laughed, and I realised they thought I was joking. I wasn’t. If Shetlanders voted with their feet and opted to travel exclusively by ferry then surely the airline would have to reconsider its exorbitant fares.

So much for travel on and off the island then. How we get around these islands can be just as controversial. I’d ditch my car in a heartbeat if we had better public transport and cycle lanes. And when I say cycle lanes, I don’t mean a pathetic white line painted down the road.

Well, that’s my transport tuppence-worth. Whatever your views are, we’re confident you’ll find something in this issue to inform, interest and entertain. Happy reading.

Welcome to the 38th Shetland Folk Festival…complete with tunes, laughs and some serious sleepless nights!!

We’ve completed the official programme and are excited to see such a great line up once again.

We thoroughly enjoy working with the Folk Festival each year to help them promote their event creating full colour flyers alongside newspaper and magazine and online/social media advertising. As we also print The Shetland Times newspaper every week, our coverage of the event alongside any videos we can capture for our news website, helps provide great all round coverage of the event that has become a staple in many a Shetlanders’, returning tourists’ and music fanatics’, yearly calendar.

Having so many visiting artistes and visitors to our islands join in the fun makes it all the more special. You’ll have a great time at this event and we hope you enjoy the programme and can make time to visit the supporting businesses who have advertised within the programme to help support this fantastic festival.

Another packed annual full of patterns, essays from designers and authors as well as information on Shetland’s cultural heritage that past participants of the event have been asking for makes up this third edition.

To enhance the tactile nature and quality of the annual, the cover is now matt laminated which also offers a higher degree of protection too. We’re sure all knitters will want this edition in their collection to help see them through the forthcoming winter nights and see them through the the next Shetland Wool Week in 2018.

Our latest publication, “Enjoy Fair Isle Knitting” is launched today at the Shetland Wool Week. We were pleased to have worked with author Chihiro Sato from Tokyo who has created beautiful contemporary designs with colourations inspired by Shetland’s nature and atmosphere.

Having been heavily involved in the project from its inception, designing the layout, amending text that was translated, coordinating the logistics of proof reading to printing and binding the project for the requested launch date, we are glad to now share and make this fine book available to you.

With the author’s deep respect for traditional Shetland patterns gained from many visits to the islands, this collection of 18 projects will allow you to share her love of Fair Isle knitting and make it possible to create hand knitted garments inspired by our islands.

The book is packed with fantastic photos, diagrams, patterns and helpful knitting notes and instructions is available now at shop.shetlandtimes.co.uk

We hope you do all enjoy Fair Isle knitting.

Filed under: Printed Jobs

We’ve been pleased to work with Morrison Construction to keep the Shetland community up to date with progress on the construction of the new Anderson High School and associated accommodation block in Lerwick.

On the last Friday of every month we product a newsletter which is designed, printed and distributed as an insert within The Shetland Times newspaper to ensure it reaches the majority or the Shetland public, informing them of the latest phase of construction, what’s due to happen next, as well as introducing them to some of the key employees involved in the project.

Having recently produced “Issue 16” we have approximately six issues left to run before the school is due to be finished. We hope all goes well over the next few months and that the school remains on track to be completed on schedule.

If you want to keep your customers or the Shetland community up to date with the latest news from your company call us to discuss how we can help you raise awareness and engagement through the power of print and our unique distribution services.

If you’ve been on social media over the last few days #uphellyaa may just have been on your radar or perhaps infiltrated your notification feeds!

On the last Tuesday of January every year the Up Helly Aa festival takes place in Shetland with 1000+ men taking part in a torchlit procession in the evening through the island capital Lerwick. The culmination of the procession is the burning of a replica viking longship that is known as the galley. For more in-depth information go to www.uphellyaa.org to read about the origins of the festival.

To provide a comprehensive flavour of the whole day and evening events, we produce a limited edition, 36pp A4, Up Helly Aa Souvenir programme which is packed with  full colour photos. WARNING, once you’ve bought a copy at shop.shetlandtimes.co.uk, you’ll want to book a visit to see next year’s festival!!

You’ll be made very welcome and we’ll be glad to see you.
