Wow – how can it be 3 weeks since we were setting up for our first Yarndale! We arrived on Friday afternoon after a fairly long drive and spent a few hours getting our stand set up. We do try and have some sort of plan before we arrive but usually there are a few things that need tweaking, especially for a new show. We were on a corner and had some lovely crochet bunting on the end of our stand ‘wall’ 🙂
Apologies for the terrible image quality – I only had my phone with me and it was quite dark when I took these :-/
I’m still trying to work out how to display samples nicely – I’ve got a couple of ideas to try out but they involve making things and we haven’t had time to have a go yet! We are pretty much at full capacity in terms of what we can fit in the van (mostly because my van is a small campervan, so we have to pack around the bed and other bits!) so we need to get creative if we want to make any changes.
Our self-striping yarn taking centre stage! We dyed up a Halloween colourway – which sold out (and I don’t even have one for myself!) and Andrew also came up with a new cycling-themed colourway, ‘Peloton’ 🙂
I had 2 lovely groups for my Tunisian crochet workshops – I taught a Tunisian Intarsia workshop and a Beginner’s workshop and my lovely friend helped Andrew out on the stand while I was teaching.
We really enjoyed the show and hope to return next year. The dates for next year’s show are up already so you can put them in your diary! September 26th & 27th 2020.
