Edinburgh Knitting & Stitching Show haul

Fantastic day yesterday at the first Knitting & Stitching Show held in Edinburgh. Plenty of people there without being in a crush.

Really pleased with my purchases.

Advent Calendar print, always wanted to make one of these.
Fat quarters in ditsy prints, not sure what I am going to make with these.
Silk cocoon stripings - got a plan for these😉
Angelina fibres, to add bling to my works
Bias binder folder
Friction pen

There were some great exhibits there too. Would have loved to buy an original but settled on two cards showing felt/blanket, hand and machine embroidery by Michala Gyetvai. 

Also had time to attend one of the 1hr workshops on offer. I selected block printing on fabric with Pat Archibold. It was great fun experimenting with bondaweb, glue granules, sequins and ink. I added the beads this morning. She has full day workshops in her studio which she said is near the Waverley train station, so will be accessible from Cumbria.

Not sure which side I should present as the front as it works from both sides.

Now to get back to planning for the crochet museum.

  1. Some great purchases and looks like a great workshop. I think it is fantastic to take a taster course before committing to a longer course great to know you and the new craft are compatible.


Thank you for visiting my blog.
