I was hoping for a quiet summer but something always comes along to change my mind. A lot of different events this year, with trunk shows and pop ups, not so many big shows, I'm staying local if I can!
Fridays 3rd & 17th August at the regular St Abbs Market in the Ebba Centre, between 10am and 4pm. I can't say often enough what a great place it is to visit.
Saturdays 4th & 18th August more visits to Seams Sew in Dunbar for a trunk show and mini crochet workshops with hand spun yarns. I take all my stock to Sheena's little shop on the High Street in Dunbar and we set up as a wool shop for the day. All my yarns, buttons, fibres, needles etc to browse in a new location. Between 10am and 3pm.
Sunday 19th August at the Cheviot Centre in Wooler for a destash day - I will be taking all my old stock and some things that don't usually come out to smaller events, so a chance to pick up a Skybluepink Designs bargain or two!
Monday 27th August sees us at the Glendale Show, Wooler in the Countryside Tent. The best Agricultural Show around, so friendly, so much to see and do. And the weather is always splendid!
Tuesdays, 7th, 14th 21st & 28th August, 4th & 11th September too! More visits to Paxton House with the St Abbs Market crew. The venue is bigger than at the Ebba Centre, so there are more stalls to see. Between 10am and 3pm in the Marquee on the lawn by the big house!
Saturday 1st September is the Alnmouth Wool Festival in the Hindmarsh Hall in Alnmouth, organised by the Sheep Tales Group. Between 10am and 4pm. Alnmouth is a lovely place to visit to, great beaches and bird life.
Between the 20th and 22nd September Skybluepink Designs are travelling overseas to take part in the Strikkefestival in Fano, Denmark. Needless to say we are really looking forward to this event! 10,000 knitters and woolly minded folk (meant in the nicest possible way!) on a beautiful island on the west coast of Denmark.
