Twisted Thread!

Look what came in the mail today! Tickets!

Hmmmm… you might say…what’s the big deal? Well, these are tickets to a HUGE exhibit/show of thread, fabric, yarn and craft suppliers that takes place 3 or 4 times a year in the UK. Finally, after wishing that just one of the shows would be at the same time as a school holiday, it happened and I’m going!Do I need more thread? Nope. Do I need more fabric or even yarn for yet another scarf? (The only thing I can knit or am likely to knit). Nope. I’m going for one reason only – to meet Carol and John from Pearsalls Embroidery/Langley Threads in Wales.

I spoke with Carol on the phone last week, following up on the order for the silk I’m using for the Colors of India project. While we were chatting away, I mentioned that I would love to visit their shop. Well, they don’t have a shop. So she suggested that I come the to Knitting and Stitching Show in London on October 10 and meet them there.

I mentioned it to my husband and he said “Sure, it would be fun to meet them and we could stop on the way to Warwickshire in October.” Isn’t he wonderful?!

M26 is their stand . So I will be making a beeline to M26. Am I excited? Yes I am.

I’ll take lots of photos and tell you ALL about it!

  1. oooo….please do tell us all about them!

    I was very very lucky, and won a thread colour chart (with real thread samples!) from the Needlepoint blog a few months ago, so I intend that my future Long and Short stitch projects will be in Pearsalls (since I usually have to colour match/pick from a computer screen).

    So I’ll be talking to them in the future……. 🙂

  2. Finally ….. don’t worry about what to spend your money on!

    You mentioned the Golden Hinde company in a previous post. Well, they will be there 🙂

    Can’t wait to actually see some of their goldwork kits 🙂

  3. Very Good!! Sounds delightfully fun!

    Warwickshire in October – is it a delightful time of year to be there? Fall colors?

    Can’t wait to hear your adventures when you get back!!!

  4. How wonderful, I have been to a flower show in Harrogate and the next time I am in the UK I hope to go to a stitch and knit or cross stitch show. I go to the UK from the states to see the performer Michael Ball. You have a wonderful husband.

  5. That sounds like so much fun. I, too, don’t actually need any thing, but it would be so much fun to go, especially for the visual feast. I’m trying to convince the hubby to take a UK trip in the next year or two, so will have to schedule it around some needlework event.

    I’m with you on the knitting. I’m currently knitting hair for a doll and it’s taking a loooong time.

  6. I’ll be going to the Harrogate Show this year – great fun, very wearing, but full of loads of interesting stands. I’m hoping Pearsalls will be at Harrogate too…

  7. What do you mean you don’t need more thread? Are you saying we have to NEED more thread or we can’t have it? I don’t want to live in that world…..

    Wish I could go along with you.

    SJ, 6000 miles away 🙁

  8. No such thing as too much when it comes to our hobbies. I’m excited for you. I only wish we had that here in the U.S. So much eye candy at a show like that. I request that you get lots of info and share websites for those of us in the US. If you get a chance blog from the show!
