We had a fantastic time exhibiting at Unravel! I’d been to the show several years ago and really enjoyed it so I was really happy that the atmosphere was as lovely as I remembered.
We were greeted by a friendly black cat when we arrived to get set up and we saw him (her?) several times over the weekend, including for breakfast! He also came round a few times to inspect the stands when the crowds had gone home 🙂
Our space was upstairs in ‘Tindle Studio’. We knew we wouldn’t have space to take all our stock, so we had to leave one of our ranges at home (we took alllll the self striping yarn, of course!) but I think our stand still looked nice 🙂
We took our special ‘Easter Treats’ colourway and sold out on Sunday morning. It’s always really difficult to know if something is going to be popular or not! I think the mini eggs might have helped 😉
I failed miserably to take any other photos apart from this one of the entrance, decorated with skeins of yarn….
The show was busy on all three days, although Sunday afternoon was (relatively!) quieter and I managed to go and do a bit of shopping of my own. Yay! I actually had a list this time because I had wanted to buy a slipper kit and a few other things at Waltham Abbey show in January but failed! I don’t have photos but I bought a lovely purple wrist ruler from The Slow Wardrobe, a book and supplies to make some Dorset Buttons from Beaker Button and a slipper kit from Joe’s Toes.
A final inspection from the cat on Sunday, just as we finished packing up! Hopefully we will be able to go again next year and if you haven’t been, I really recommend putting the dates in your diary – Friday 21st – Sunday 23rd 2020. Farnham is a lovely town with some nice places to eat (although we failed to get in to a couple of places on the Saturday evening and ended up back at our hotel with a ‘picnic’ style supper from the supermarket and a bottle of gin! Note to self – book a table next time!)
