Knitting and Stitching Show..NEXT WEEK!!!


So I haven't written on here for a while because I have been busy knitting, for the biggest craft fair that Knit and Destroy has ever been to, the Knitting and Stitching Show!!! Described as, wait for it..."The best textiles exhibition in Europe"...and it definitly will be this year.

How come you are doing this, I hear you cry...isn't it really expensive n that?! Well, here's the thing, I won the stall. Thanks to the lovely ladies at Craft Guerilla for running the competition where stalls at each knitting and stitching show (London, Birmingham and Harrogate) were up for grabs for new designers who wanted the opportunity to bring their products to a bigger market and make that 'next step'.

I got the good news that I would be having a stand at the Knitting and Stitching Show way back in July and cannot believe just how quickly the time has gone and it's next week! I have plenty of last minute making to do, this is my anthem for it:

Just to be clear...I unfortunately won't be making the world's largest gem sweater...but I will be making lots of fancy knitted goods for people to look at and buy, wooop. Come and see me and all the other ace crafters and suppliers in Harrogate next week then go home and knit yo-self a gem sweater yeah!
