I thought I would add a note about the shows I am booked in for this year. Last year I did 4 shows and felt that they went pretty well. I absolutely love the customer interaction you get at yarn shows and I properly LOVE my lovely customers who come and either flash their pants or let me know they are wearing their JKS Big Girl Pants!
This year I will be at the following shows
April 7th & 8th - Spring Into Wool, Leeds Grammar School
It was the inaugural show for Spring Into Wool last year and I was delighted to attend - the venue is a wonderful school with plenty of parking and space and the vendors were lovely and varied. I will be there again this year and this time it is a full weekend, not just one day. I'm looking forward to getting into dhow mode again!
May 12th & 13th - Wool @ J13, Lower Drayton Farm, Penkridge
This show is about 1 mile from my house, I went last year as a customer but it had SUCH an amazing vibe that I had to apply this year. I'm really pleased to have got in and am looking forward to my lovely local people being able to see what I do!
July 14th & 15th - Yarningham, Uffculme Centre, Birmingham
Yarningham will always hold a special place in my heart. I did my first ever show at the first ever Yarningham and am really glad to have supported and had support from the fabulous Yarningham ladies both last year and this. It's a change of venue this year and having been to the Uffculme centre before I am really looking forward to seeing a yarn show in the space. Stirchley Baths was a fab, quirkly little venue but Uffculme will allow more vendors and customers to attend - should be a good one
September 1st - Southern Wool Show, Newbury Race Course
A new show put together buy the team behind Spring Into Wool, can't wait to do a show further south than Birmingham!
And I have applied for a few other bits and bobs so we shall wait and see later in the year!!
