Waltham Abbey Wool Show – the verdict

Image

Having taken part in the Waltham Abbey Wool Show on Sunday I should really have blogged about it straight away but to be honest I was so tired when I got home I decided to take yesterday as a ‘duvet day’ and come back feeling refreshed today.

The verdict? The show was brilliantly organised by the Kate, Diane and the ladies of The Crochet Chain. It may have seemed a bit of a shlep from Brighton but as it was actually only 25 mins from my parents’ home it was easy for me to get there. It was held in one of the Marriot Hotel’s meeting rooms and there was a varied selection of stalls including the lovely and hugely talented Janie Crow who opened the show, the exquisite crochet delights of Namolio, the rainbow of hand dyed yarns at Sparkleduck and Yarn Garden and the cute creations of Helen at Woolly Chic. It was lovely to meet new faces and catch up with a few …well let’s just say not so new ones. Of course I’d love to be able to show you a selection of beautifully shot, artfully composed photos taken with my latest model iPhone but sadly the house brick of a mobile that I currently carry around (and which is going soon I promise) can only take what you see below. So note to self, take a camera next time or change phoned and get the shots before it’s too late. Must do better at Unravel…

Waltham Abbey Wool Show

Image

A new year and a new wool show. This weekend sees the first ever Waltham Abbey Wool Show which takes place on Sunday from 10.00am to 4.00pm at the Marriott Hotel in Waltham Abbey.

The show is being organised by Diana and Tina who are the ladies behind The Crochet Chain a local wool shop in Waltham Abbey that stocks all sorts of yarnie treats plus haberdashery, knitting needles, crochet hooks and accessories. I kind of found out about this show by accident on Twitter and am very pleased to have got in at the last moment so I’ll be there on this Sunday January 19th selling my lovely soft baby alpaca yarns, beautifully wrapped kits and patterns.

Come and look, touch and get inspired, there’s a Funky hat competition, lots of yarn to squish, demonstration areas as well as lots of skilfully made hand made items to buy.

Advance tickets are just £3 or alternatively you can pay on the door (£4). You’ll find more info on the Waltham Abbey Wool Show website here

Hope to see you there
