This year’s Wordplay festival looks set to be one of the best yet. With a first-class guest list performing readings, panel discussions, children’s sessions and book signings along with several events for aspiring writers, it should be an invigorating few days. What a perfect way to lighten up what can otherwise be a dank and dreary month.

Although Wordplay may be our annual literary highlight, I think it’s fair to say that Shetland is a great place for lovers of literature to live, having year-round events for bookworms and budding writers.

Shetland Library plays a crucial role in helping to create a lively and lightsome culture around reading and books. It is a place very close to my heart. When my children were small, the library was our second home, and we were always given a warm welcome by the lovely members of staff (even being offered a lift to the Gilbert Bain when my son attempted some impromptu shelf-abseiling and split his ear open). When my toddlers were having a crabbit day, the promise of a trip to the library usually got them into a more reasonable frame of mind. Fast forward ten years, and it still has a second-home status, although the children like to make their own way there now … Hopefully, our feature will give you a flavour of the warmth and liveliness of this very special place.

On arriving in Shetland, I was struck by how local writing talent was so well nurtured through writing groups and mentoring schemes. This supportive climate has allowed some exceptional talent to bloom. These islands have produced no shortage of writers, as a flick through this magazine will tell you: from the rapidly rising star of Malachy Tallack, to well-loved poets and novelists on the local literary scene, to up-and-coming writers such as Sally Huband (who speaks about her experience of winning a Scottish Book Trust New Writer award).

Of course, writing is just one type of craft at which Shetlanders do very well. This being November (craft fair time) we have some crafty offerings of a different type too. If only the rules didn’t prevent me from entering this month’s competition! I will be seriously envious of anyone who wins the hamper of craft goodies we have up for grabs. Continuing the craft theme, we have the tracks of Wendy Inkster’s life, and a meet up with the maakers and yaakers of Anderson High school.

Of course, literature and knitting are by no means mutually exclusive, as the book Reflection Apo Hands so gracefully proves. It was a privilege to meet Laura Whittall and Ann Williamson to speak about the inspiration behind this project. As Ann pointed out, what could make a better stocking filler than this beautiful book? (Apart from the December Shetland Life that is.)

There are loads of delights to look forward to this month: not just Wordplay, but ballet performances, theatre productions and so much
more. Enjoy.

We’ve enjoyed working with The Scottish Society for Northern Studies on their Northern Studies publications since 2005 and the 48th edition is now available. It includes an updated, full colour cover to complement the great academic work contained within this interdisciplinary journal.

This Special Edition:Scotland and Scandinavia in the Early Modern Period is a 96pp, plus cover, A5, PUR perfect bound format and makes a fine addition to the collection.

If you have a book project you would like us to help you produce, we would be very interested to hear from you. We can help project manage the whole process if required and are happy to provide flexible production timetables to keep your publication on track and meet your preferred delivery or launch date.

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.

Have you seen the latest Shetland Recreational Trust annual report?

It looks fantastic with the four cover images having been “spot UV varnished” to make the pictures pop out. This type of specialist finish also increases the tactile nature of the reading experience too. The inner pages have been designed to pull through the angled boxes on the cover and we’ve had excellent feedback from our client.

If you want your next publication or promotional project to include an element that makes it stand out from the crowd, give us a call. We will provide suggestions and design ideas to incorporate into your printed material that will make it more attractive, memorable and get noticed.

Contact us by dropping in along, calling us on 01595 742000 or by e-mail, printing@shetlandtimes.co.uk. We look forward to your call.

Filed under: Printed Jobs

Shetland Wool Week is a world renowned celebration of Britain’s most northerly native sheep, the Shetland textile industry and the rural farming community on these islands and the 44pp of this A5 programme we printed for the seventh consecutive event is packed full of information.

Being involved with and helping to promote local events to increase awareness of Shetland and the fantastically varied crafts, trades, events, products, services and businesses we have within the islands is rates highly on our agenda.

Wool Week has grown into an internationally acclaimed event attracting visitors from all over the world and we are happy to play our small part in producing the promotional literature to further enhance their enjoyment of the event and participation opportunities.
