We’re bundled up in woolly garb and sipping hot chocolate because the Autumnal chill has started (as it is now the end of September, don’t you know), but, happily that can only mean one thing – Yarndale is just around the corner. This marvellous Yorkshire show is one of our very favourites. For one weekend the Skipton auction mart is bedecked with woolly bunting and transformed into a haven of textile delights..
We’re particularly looking forward to this specific Yarndale because here we will unveil our swanky new show signs. Cornish artist and fairground sign writer extraordinaire, Amy Goodwin, has created some spectacular Mill inspired hand painted signs for our show stand. Please find a sneak peak of Amy’s work in progress below and click here to take a look at her website… for those of you unable to attend the show, we’ll make sure to take some photos to share with you next week!
We had such a blast at Fibre East. We loved meeting all the folk who popped by our stand and particularly all the splendid spinners who will be joining in with BritSpin later in the year. It was Jack’s first show with us and he was a marvel – thank you to him and all those who welcomed him to the world of woolly shows.
We spent the weekend up at Woolfest, chatting to lovely folk and inhaling the yarn and fibre fumes. Thank you so much to everyone who stopped by our stand, we had a blast. It was a wonderfully sunny weekend up in Cumbria and a splendid drive through the beautiful countryside – and we even managed to fit in two World Cup matches on the way up!
We had all our usual goodies on display, with an abundance of delightful yarn and tops.
Our Knit by Numbers range is what we would consider our most show stopping display. We are, therefore, going to share a brief history of KBN before we tell you the really exciting news, (by the way, it’s small and cute.)
A small idea with big potential created by John almost 7 years ago. The Knit by Numbers range is named after one of John’s fun pastimes when he was a child – Paint By Numbers, whilst at the same time being a homage to the celebrated Pantone colour charts.
