Knitting & Stitching Show London

This is just the busiest textile show ever I think. I bumped into several people I know who were "first=timers" and after wandering around for a couple of hours had the usual kind of glazed look on their faces, suffering from textile and sensory overload. The more times you attend, the easier it gets to find your way around. At about 3o'clock I spoke to a group of shell-shocked looking A level students who had come on a bus from Cirencester, and when I asked them what they thought of the show, their rather tired and weak answer was, after a little consideration....just one word....BIG !!!
I was planning to take some photos today, but forgot my camera, so they will have to wait for tomororow.
There is, as usual, a combination of stunning exhibitions, wonderful work from Designer Makers, far too many trading stands, awful food and extortionate coffee.
My main achievement of the day was to secure a venue for a workshop next month to teach the techniques I employ in my Patchwork Nuno Scarves & Wraps. This will take place on Sunday Nov 21st at Nest. Nest is a delightful new shop opening later this month in Crouch End, and will sell knitting wool, felting supplies, gifts and other yummy bits and pieces, and is the brainchild of Amy and her Mum Rose. There are only 8 places on this course and booking is essential. Either phone me or Nest for details or to book a place.
