Yesterday I had a fantastic time at Fibre Flurry in King's Norton, Birmingham. The show took place at St Nicholas' Grammar School, which was featured on the BBC Restoration programme. There were about 25 exhibitors, all displaying fantastic things, I went over budget and had to pop to the local cash machine so that I could treat myself to Erica Knight's new book!
It was so nice to visit this type of event and not be stuck in a characterless exhibition hall. After my lunch I had a wonder around the grounds and took some photographs. It was also a lovely sunny day!
As well as my new book I bought heaps of buttons (from Textile Garden), and some wonderful yarns ...
This 'Hannah' double knit by Yarn To Knit, made from 100% Bluefaced Leicester Wool.
'Olivia' Merino Sock Yarn by BabyLongLegs, think i'm going to knit a lacy scarf with this.
'Salty Dog' 100% Merino by Colinette, bought from First 4 Yarns. Think i'm going to do some felting with this one.
I'm so pleased I went to Fibre Flurry, there were some lovely people there, and I really hope there will be another one next year.
