The Spring Knitting and Stitching Show

Here's my stand at The Knitting and Stitching Show at The Olympia, London.

Had a great four days. Met lots of lovely visitors as well as meeting the very friendly and inspirational felt makers on the International Feltmakers stand. Here's Lesley (The Chair - in Pink) and Natalie (in purple). Notice their wonderful jackets.

Here's Lesley demonstrating. They were sharing skills and tips for the whole four days.

Here's some more of the fantastic felt displayed on their stand. Unfortunately Laura who makes beautiful felt pendants and exquisite hand painted silk scarves wasn't there when I took these photos but you can see her work here

At the Knitting and Stitching Shows this year there's also an excellent felt exhibition 'The Mermaid Project' by The Silk Felt Collective - Yulia Badian with Lidwina Charpentier, Roseitha Karl-Schreiner and Ariane Mariane  It's well worth seeing (it will be at Alexander Palace, Dublin and Harrogate) and the artists were there doing demonstrations and very generously sharing how they had made their individual pieces with some fantastic tips. Here's a little snippet of their wonderful work.

There was so much to see and do but since I spent the majority of my time on my stand I didn't get a chance to take any more photos.
