Fab day out with my friend Valerie;  it is what it say with LOADS of knitting – and if you thought knitting was just for jumpers think again!

A real showcase for new young stitching talent and great exhibitions, including one by E.A.S.T. whose exhibition ‘Between The Lines; will be going on the road and we are hoping to catch up with then in 2015 in Suffolk: www.easttextile.co.uk

Prism had more of their work on display – another talented group as you have seen from our films.

Corrine Lapierre (the author of our Book of the Month) had her own stand and we caught up with several of our contributors – Sue at Daisy Chain Designs; Lynette at The Stitch Witch; Jamie at Colouricious and Clara from Designs by Clara who has a new little business designing her own iron-on transers for needlework and applique www.etsy.com/stitchdesignsbyclara

Shopping was also on the agenda and we both came home with bags full of goodies – mine was a mixture of stuff I needed (fluffy backing for my Momentum quilts);  stuff I wanted (extra bobbins) and stuff I couldn’t live without (threads – can you spot a colour theme there?!) all of which I shall enjoy unpacking later today!
