The Knitting and Stitching Show

We just got back from the Knitting and Stitching Show in Harrogate. If you're not from these parts, Harrogate is a small town in the north of England. And the Knitting and Stitching show is more geared to textile artists, beaders and papercrafters than quilters. It was a school trip arranged by the textile teacher and my two younger daughters and their friends came along. The girls had a great time and happily there were just enough fabric stands to empty my pockets. The exhibitions were great. Where else could you see a life size knitted fishing boat?

The girls enjoyed having their lunch in style in one of the boxes at the Theatre Royal! Quite the stunning venue. One of my favourite parts was the private tutorial from Helen Deighan. But I'll save that for tomorrow.
