Fairs and a little more

another week has flown by and I can only now feel that I’m recovering from the excitement of being at the Knit and Stitch Fair at London Alexandra Palace. I was so overwhelmed by all the lovely yarns and products on offer that I found it difficult to choose or make a rational decision on any.
One of the first stands I visited was Namolio a beautiful store which specialises in mostly linen supplies for sewing, knitting, crocheting and other related crafts. Have a look at the lovely colours.Namolio
They will also be having a stall at “Thread” exhibition and show on November 3rd at Farnham Maltings. I’m sure this will be worth a visit.

I also finally had the opportunity to see Habu (a Japanese supplier specialising in “different” yarns, stainless steel, paper, linen to mention only a few)in all it’s glory. The yarns are all so beautiful it is just not possible to like only one. Fortunately they sold little sample packs. I did feel like a child in a sweetie shop.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY Kate1!
Rachel completed the most beautiful scarf. Lots of beautifully designed and crocheted rounds stitched together to make a scarf.Rachel scarf

The lovely thing about anything hand made, there will always only be one like it, never to be repeated. I know it is easy to buy on the high street, just doesn’t have the same feel, does it?

Wishing you a crafty weekend. I will be trying to transform our rather unsightly cupboard doors……wish me luck

happy crafting
