Yarn Expo 2017

Last weekend was the first ever Nottingham Yarn Expo and it was so good to do a show in my home town! There were lots of local people – both stallholders and customers and I met so many lovely people. Thank you to everyone who came to say hello!

The open plan stands worked really well. I have to admit – I did panic when I found out there were no walls! But it made the space feel really open and I got to know my lovely stand neighbours.

The Pheasant Cushion from Cute Comfort Knits was the star of the show and Ollie Elephant from The Knitted Nursery Collection got a huge amount of cuddles! Both books and the accompanying yarn packs are available from my shop and would make lovely Christmas gifts!

I got in early on the Sunday so that I could have a mooch around before the show opened and there were so many gorgeous hand-dyed yarns. My favourite stand was Moel-Veiw Yarn. Gorgeous yarns, beautiful display – and the best project bag ever!

You’ll be pleased to hear that I was very well behaved and only treated myself to one skein of sock yarn (for my sockdrobe challenge next year) from my lovely stand neighbours Skein Queen.

Thank you Dad, Steph, Rich and Andrew for helping me get everything to and from the show and helping me to set-up x
