I would like to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who helped make our 3rd Birthday Stitch Up such a wonderful day. You came from far and wide to shop and celebrate. It was lovely to see so many familiar faces as well as plenty of new ones. Thank you to our stall holders, Rosies’ Moments and Sparkleduck for bringing such a gorgeous array of goodies to tempt us. To Liz, Mandy and Rosie who baked the delicious cakes we enjoyed. There was barely a crumb left by the end of the day! To my parents without whom none of this would have happened.
But most of all, thank you to all of you who took the time to visit. I always wanted Stitch Solihull to be a community, somewhere all crafters would feel welcome regardless of age or ability and I feel you have truly made that dream possible.I did manage to indulge in a little bit of shopping myself. The top 2 yarns are destined to be socks. The gradient skeins are going to be accents for a shawl, possibly On the Spice Market by Melanie Berg. As for the 2 at the bottom left, they’re waiting to tell me what they want to be and in the mean time are by my desk to be stroked occasionally!
I would love to see any photos you have of the day or of your purchases. If you have a plan for them, let me know too, I’m always after inspiration!
Our next event is Yarn Shop Day on Saturday April 30th. This annual cerebration of Local Yarn Shops, in association with Lets’ Knit Magazine, is now in its third year and promises to be another great day. Watch this space for more details on what to expect…
