The Knitting and Stitching Show

I have been waiting to post about my trip to the fabulous Knitting and Stitching show at Ally Pally the other week, but it has taken me this long to remember to take a photo of my stash of goodies in daylight.

The journey there was horrid. All of North London seemed to be on the road and going our way too. Grumble grumble.  Kate who was driving us remained cool and calm even though we spent valuable time on Muswell Hill not inside Ally Pally.

At last we arrived and an early port of call was Selvedge Magazine where they had these amazing scarves and Necklaces by Sophie Digard.  My photo is unfortunately rubbish.

We then moved into the main hall and – Oh wow! soooo many stalls! sooo many beads and sooo much fabric!

Liberty lookie likeys and the real thing for much less than at Liberty’s. I was very good on this stall otherwise I could have easily spent all my budget here.

There was some beautiful work by some very clever and talented people – sorry I did’nt note who this was made by and, it is another rubbish photo

I had sore feet and calves by the time we got home, although I have a stash of some very beautiful stuff. I’m especially pleased with the vintage look printed linen fabric and the lovely coloured tiny beads.  Some it is very likely to appear on some more jewellry in the coming weeks, so watch this space.
