I have to say - we had an absolute blast! The stand was busy , we had lovely visitors, customers, supporters - lots of lovely chats, heard amazing stories, and even bumped into very old friends and renewed friendships... who could ask for more?
It was wonderful to be able to share our skills, and have people leaving feeling more excited and confident about trying out their kits , or booking onto workshops! Carole's roving and yarn flew off the shelves, and both my creations and my kits/tools disappeared quickly too.
We even managed to sneak off, in turns, for 5 minutes, and catch up with other makers, do some stealth shopping for woolly treats, and visit the astounding life-size knitted sea-cave! I also met Lydia from blackdoggingercat in person, at last! Take a peek at www.lydianeedle.com for some lovely ideas too!
You can see the photos on my Facebook page too ..
I just want to say a massive thank you to the organisers and crews, the stallholders, the friends who arrived with coffee and cake, to my daughter for her tremendous help and patience, for Carole for sharing the stand and the fun and to all the friendly and fabulous visitors... I cannot wait for next year, and am already planning the stall layout and goodies for everyone!
