Waltham Abbey Wool Show

Have you got your tickets for the first yarn show of 2021?

There is an amazing line-up of designers and podcasters you can meet via Zoom and vendors will be going live over at the WAWS Facebook page. You can catch me there at 3:30 pm GMT.

The Knitting & Stitching Show goes virtual!

Beyond Knitting & Stitching This time last year, I'd completely immersed myself in yarn shows! After living away from London for 15 years it was amazing to go back there, with my yarn, and exhibit at The Knitting and Stitiching Show, Alexandra Palace. As we try to make the most of the current situation we're facing, I decided to take part in Beyond K&S. You'll find lots of great vendors in the Shopping Hub (with lots of special offers too) and there are all sorts of workshops taking place. I will have some mini selections going in to the shop, made up...
