Festiwool recap

Well, it's been a bit of a crazy weekend around here, what with Nordládda going live and heading up to Festiwool on Saturday! Allison and I were on the road before 7:00 am on our way to Hitchin, and we made it there in good time.

  Stall is ready to go!

After a somewhat hectic set-up (poor Alli didn't get her breakfast until after the show opened!), we were ready to go! I hadn't been to Festiwool before, and was really happy with the space: it was bright, airy and well lit, even though the day was grey and overcast. We were right next to Third Vault Yarns, and I was very entertained to find that, just like designers, two dyers can come up with the same idea independently.

It was really lovely to see some familiar faces from Fibre-East, and to meet some Fibre Club members who are having fun with their club parcels! Thank you all for stopping by, and well done to those of you who were insistent that you really didn't need another hobby (but you do, come on, you know you do!)

There will be a big update on Saturday, 21 November at 10:00 am London time with lots of woolly goodness, including last month and this month's Phat Fiber colourways, and some new holiday-themed colours just in time for December. Happy spinning!
