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.
