Stories from Harrogate on Stand B635!

It was our last outing for 2006 and it didn't disappoint! We had a really busy four days and made lots of new friends as well as catching up with friends we made last year. Thanks to Peter Buck for the picture of us both on our stall. It's a nice change to have managed to get Pete in front of a camera for once!

We were really pleased to have our new Kool Aid hand dyeing kit ready for the show and it proved to be very popular. It comes with enough wool to make a pair of knit-mitts and a pair of wristlets and six bright Kool Aid dyes. The box is even microwave safe for heating the dyed yarn to fix the colour.

Harrogate is always a very exciting show for us because we get to meet so many people using yarn, dyes and fabrics in really creative and innovative ways. It's also pleasing to see the numbers of students and young people working with textiles.

A special thanks must go to the show organisers for putting on a performance of the student fashion show for the exhibitors on the first evening. As exhibitors we don't usually get to see the shows and it was a real treat to see the imagination and vision amongst the students. Make sure you take time to see the fashion shows if you go to Harrogate in 2007.
