Well, that’s the Edinburgh Yarn Festival over now! And, what a wild Woolly occasion! Sold out of all our Shetland wool bags; and all our bags with handles!
So, a huge thank you to everyone who stopped by the Woolly Originals’ stand. It was wonderful to meet up and chat to so many amazing knitters, crocheters, crafters and yarn shop owners; and meet in person the prize winner of the “Guess the Weight of the Bag” competition!
Also, a huge thank you to Jo and Mica of EYF for organising another fantastic creative community event. Finally, a big thank you to my two assistants, Jo and Fu for helping me prepare and run the Woolly stand. Love you both!
Hoping to restock my e-shop next week! Details will be announced in advance. Meantime, happy crafting!
I’m delighted to be attending the Edinburgh Yarn Festival as a vendor this year. I shall be at stand C1 in the main exhibition hall. I’ll be selling a range of my bags including: small project bags; DPN bags; project bags with individual skein holders; and two of my Joan Eardley inspired bucket bags.
The fabric of my bags is machine knit on my vintage knitting machine using either: wools spun at Knit Rennie in Aberdeenshire; or 1-ply Shetland wool from Jamieson’s of Scotland. My bags are lined with linen or cotton fabrics from Scottish Linen in Kirkcaldy, Fife.
If you’re coming along to the Festival, please come and say hello and show me what you’ve bought, what you’re knitting, or what you’re planning! See you there!
