What a weekend!

Morning Stitchers,

WOW! What a weekend we had! I barely had the energy to stay awake yesterday, let alone blog, so I’m going to try now.
You came in your HUNDREDS! I wish we has counted the number of people – we were absolutely astounded beyond our wildest dreams! The atmosphere was buzzing, many people stayed for the day, and from the feedback we’ve had it sounds like everyone had an amazing time. We certainly did, and it was so lovely to meet many of you who we know via Facebook, twitter and Ravelry.

Rachel Coopey’s course went brilliantly, and we’re pleased to announce that we will be running workshops with her in the future.

  1. It was such a pleasure! I met so many great people and saw a staggeringly large number of my friends and co-spinners and fibre fanatics. Thank you Ana, Vicki and Ana’s lovely parents and can we do it all again soon? Jill aka Wrigglefingers
