Well if you follow me on Twitter or Instagram you will have seen that last Saturday I had myself a lovely time at the Spring 2014 Knitting & Stitching Show.
|"Have Trolley = WILL shop!!"|
Unfortunately, I missed out on booking the Collar-making workshop. But, I might attend the Autumn 2014 show in Alexandra Place and attend it then instead.
I took my trusty trolley with me (as I had a sneaky suspicion that I'd come home laden down with wares)... it's
I also managed to catch up with Roisin of Dolly Clackett and her lovely friend Lauren (Third Row Centre). Roisin even managed to find the perfect fabric for her wedding-dress (and it's beautiful!).
I entirely missed Stevie from Beebee's Vintage Dress though... :( !
But, I did see the very delightful Claire-Louise from The Thrifty Stitcher (I do hope that your back gets better soon CL!!). And, sewing is a small world - as we both know Melissa from FehrTrade, and Melissa is a tutor of the Breton Tee, Leggings and Posh Pants classes at The Thrifty Stitcher studio :)
So, what did I buy... here's the pics!!
And, I got to meet Charlotte & Victoria from By Hand London too (note to self - should've got them to autograph my pattern - doh!).
