Fyberspates does the Knitting and Stitching Show

We had an amazing time at the Knitting and Stitching Show at Alexandra Palace last week. It was brilliant to meet so many passionate knitters. We adored seeing all the amazing things that you have been making from Scrumptious and our other yarns. It was a real treat.

We had a lovely stand, not far from the huge Rose Window - a much-needed landmark to help navigation. The show was MASSIVE! There were hundreds of stands, selling everything from sewing machines and fabric, to beautiful yarns and books.

Team Fyberspates consisted of Jeni (of course! - on the right of the picture above), me (Jen, on the left), Nic (giggling in the photo below), Jim (who came to sell over the weekend) and Dunc (who helped with set-up and break-down).

The boys managed to avoid having their pictures taken - not sure how!

We took it in turns to model the garments from The Scrumptious Collection, but it was ever so hot in the hall. If you came in the afternoon, the chances are the garments were back on the hangers! Nic sorted us out with beautiful pinnies from Andsewtoknit for holding all of our necessities, and I set mine up with a mobile knitting station.

If you missed us at Ally Pally, then do stop by the online shop. The book and full range of Scrumptious yarns are available online.

Thanks also to Mum for having us to stay - much appreciated!

We're booked in with a stand at Fibre Flurry in Birmingham on 29th October, so do come and say hello there as well. More on that later in the week...
