Easter has brought some cooler weather to my part of the world with drizzle today after heavy storms yesterday. Time is marching by quickly and we are almost into May which means Royal Agricultural Show time. There will be a few changes in the Sheep Expo this year - all of which I hope entice visitors to our corner of the Show. There will be a wool shop plus two indie dyers amongst other stands and we will be offering wool related workshops to keep a watch on my Facebook page as I will give information about them as soon as details are finalised. Clare and I are madly working on knitted and woven handmades for the Show plus dyeing of roving and locks of various sheep breeds for spinners and felters alike.
In the meantime there is dyeing of yarns happening so there will be new colourways to choose from and hopefully I will manage to dye just what you cannot resist for your stash! No pressure!!
I also have a beautiful new product to launch at the Show but will give you a sneak peek a day or two beforehand.
As always I encourage visitors to my stand to download the Zapper app as it makes life so much easier than swiping a credit card - recently there has been an upsurge in cloning, hacking and theft of credit cards so this is a great way to shop without putting your card at risk! (Not that you have to worry about me doing anything like that but it does mean a more pleasurable shopping experience for everyone!)
There is a new addition to the shop - Handknits - at the moment only fingerless mittens but more items will be added as they are knitted. Everything will be knitted with Yarn Stash yarns. This began as a way to show off the yarns at fibre fairs/markets but non-knitting customers were buying them so quickly that I decided to extend to include Handknits!
