June means that the Royal Agricultural Show has finished and I have some me time to recuperate and start to think about school and varsity holidays when I'll have my children around. The Show was a great success and I'd like to thank everyone who stopped by to chat, buy or make themselves known to me in person as we have been Facebook friends or Instagram followers. I love meeting up with you as well as my family and friends who support me!
I launched my hand crafted pewter shawl pins at the Show and they have been well received. They are beautifully made by a South African jewellery designer especially for Yarn Stash.
This year at the Show, in addition to the Zapper app as a way of paying, I had a PocketPos card device that made quite a difference to my customers' shopping experience. I will have both methods of payment from now on.
World Wide Knit in Public Day in the garden at Tea on 23 was a lovely morning. Kate gave a sock knitting workshop, Adre gave a crocheted beanie workshop and the rest of us relaxed in the winter sun with our needles and hooks and enjoyed all the lovely drinks and eats that Carrie and her lovely staff provided for us. Nothing more special than enjoying a morning chatting with friends. It was hard to drag ourselves away but we will be back there soon - it's a favourite stop on my school run early in the morning!
Also advance warning that we will be at Wings Wheels & Whistles in Pietermaritzburg on Saturday and Sunday 3 & 4 August 2019. Another wonderful way to spend some time with the whole family - lots of interesting hobbies will be there with the wonderful steam trains!
