Okay okay, I know I’ve been a bit quiet on here lately. I am literally up to my eyes in yarn! (Not an exaggeration: I was saved from a near fatal yarn avalanche (yarn-valanche?) the other day when the yarn shelf pitched forward and dumped all the yarns on me. Death by yarn – the best way to go?
Perth and Yarndale: it’s a go!
I’ve been putting everything together, and as it’s my first large show there’s a lot to think about. Check out this post if you want to know what the heck I’m talking about.
If you come to either of the shows, you’ll see the Tetris mini-shelves I made to house yarn, the Mario themed mystery box yarn shelves, a competition to win a GamerCrafting voucher (don’t worry online only friends, you’ll get your very own competition after Yarndale is over!), Advent calendar pre-orders (mine are SPARKLY and cheaper than the other similarly sized calendars out there), gradient packs, an exciting kit collaboration unveiling, and previously unreleased shades like this one:
There will also be the popular pins from the Etsy shop, introducing three brand new designs. Also, we’re introducing a brand new product: STICKERS!!!! Designed by my talented wife, there are four designs to choose from, for now. More will be added in coming months!
Then, we’ll be introducing brand new Harry Potter themed mitts kits, with yarns dyed with inspiration from each Hogwarts House, and a simple fingerless mitts pattern. You can make two pairs from just one skein, and you can smoosh the sample to get an idea of how gorgeously soft the yarn is.
Even more new stuff
I’ll also have a selection of needles, hooks, and accessories, and patterns by the fabulous designer Anna Nikipirowicz. You’ll get to see the Essie, Yrden, and Nerida patterns in person and buy the yarn + pattern, and the needles/hook if you need it.
I’ll also ALSO have some exclusive tote bags and project bags from the up and coming Nine Pence Bear Designs! These will only be available at shows until she gets her Etsy shop up, so don’t forget to take a sneaky peek. Tote bags will be cheaper when you buy yarn as well, and let me tell you, her project bags are THE BEE’S KNEES. They’re the only bags I’ll use now.
If you don’t see something you’re looking for, please ask! We might have extra stock hiding somewhere, and as we have a small stall everything won’t fit at once!
And now to tick off the other 5 billion tasks on my to-do list, eh? Perth Festival of Yarn, T-7 days and counting! Yarndale is two weeks after that on September 23-24: we’ll see you there!
