How to get inspired

Yesterday, after voting I went to Hatfield house for the living crafts show.  It was great! I spoke to loads of people about what they do, and it is fascinating to see other people’s passions.

The show is still on over the weekend so go have a look, and be inspired!  (Living crafts website)

Knitaholics – Romford

2014-09-20 12.52.30Just come back from the Knitaholics show in Romford, previously Tina went and set up a stand for us, but since I wasn’t sure what would appeal to the mainly Machine Knitters who attend, I thought I would pop along and have a look!

2014-09-20 12.38.42They were a lovely friendly bunch of people, with a passion for what they do – which in any craft is the way to attract new peeps, I do have a knitting machine at home, which was gifted to me when I was at the Shop, and I am very tempted to have a go!

I will be going next year, but not sure what I will take – probably buttons, books, knitting needles and crochet hooks!
