You may have read my previous blogpost, where I wrote about how I did things differently this summer. Well, as autumn approaches, I’m back on the road again.
On Saturday I’ll be heading up to Perth to set up for Perth Festival of Yarn which is on the Sunday. I’m looking forward to this very much. The lovely peeps there are even organising a social night so we can all get to know each other the night before. Hopefully we won’t be too hungover for the show!
My Grandad was a Dewar and came from the Fife area of Scotland, so it’s with great pleasure that I’ll be taking to the road to sell my woolly wares at The Dewar Centre in Perth. More information can be found on the Perth Festival of Yarn website.
I’ve got lots of lovely new creations to take with me to Perth. I’ve made four garments in my ‘Mainly Monochrome’ collection, and I’m looking forward to seeing what folk think of these. These and lots of other woollies are in the website shop, just for this week, in case you can’t make it to Perth.
I’ll also have plenty of my popular woolly wraps and ponchos in a variety of colours. I’m loving this new autumnal range, which incidentally can also be found down at The Wool Clip shop in Caldbeck or online in Women’s Clothing.
I’ve got a few sweatercoats, ready for Perth, and I’ll be making lots more in the weeks to come. Keep an eye on social media (see at bottom of this post) to see what I’ve been making lately.
I’ve been concentrating on jackets lately, and these are proving to be very popular. I’ve gone for a smaller hood on some of them, which is proving popular, especially when made from cashmere!
Of course I’ll have my usual stock of accessories, with armwarmers, hats and scarves.
After Perth, I’ll be back home for a couple of weeks before heading down to Skipton for Yarndale. Although it is in it’s fifth year, this is the first time I’m taking my woollies down there. I’m told it’s ever so friendly and a great show. I’m looking forward to catching up with some of my fellow woolly traders there as well as meeting customers old and new.
So hopefully I’ll see some of you either at Perth Festival of Yarn, or at Yarndale. Do come and make yourself known if you are at either shows.
You can still find a good selection of all my upcycled woolly wares in the website shop if you can’t make it to either.
