Super+Super at Twisted Thread. Hello All and happy Friday to you! Its been a pretty busy week at Super+Super and I am still playing catch up with myself. However I thought it’d be nice to post a few photos (slightly lower quality phone pics i’m afraid!) of our day at Twised Thread at Alexandra Palace. It was a long day with a 5am train to London, bag of yarn and sandwiches in tow, but totally worth every minute! Firstly I have never visited Ali Pali yet which I think is a bit ridicules as so much goes on there. Never mind! Hey it was perhaps better that my first time was craft related anyway :)
Most of my morning was spent at the GMC publications Stand (D25 for those of you who are still heading there this week!) promoting our craft book Crochet from The Super+Super series of 4 creative project books! It was a really fun morning and I was mega excited to speak to lots of inspiring crafters about their latest projects and purchases. The highligh however for me was getting to teach crochet at the stand! I was thrilled at how many people came to sit down with me and learn a project from the crochet book.
Before I dashed off to catch my train back to Nottingham I had half an hour to peruse some of the hundreds of craft and sewing stands. Most people take a whole day to get around the halls at a leisurely pace but sadly this was not the case for me. I had chance to see some lovely stands and long term favourites such as Merchant & Mills’s, MIY Workshop, and DMC Craft World but to name a few AND I found a couple of gorgeous new yarn brands called Mrs Moon and Loopy Mango… you must check them out especially if you love chunky and xxl chunky merino yarns!
Just as I was leaving the show I got to say hi to none other than knitting moguls Arne and Carlos who were sitting on a comfy sofa holding an xmas decoration demo! That was the icing on the cake. Have a good weekend folks and don’t forget we have two craft classes coming up in November in Nottingham and London which have a few spaces available and you can find the info here on our facebook page! Feel free to like the page and leave us a message with your craft show highlights! Amy x
