I’m back home from an amazing weekend at Fibre East… celebrating with my totally awesome husband and a glass [or two] of Champagne.
As many of you know, I’m fairly new to this game of yarn dyeing and I’m not the most prolific of designers – BUT, I truly love what I do and I take as great care in writing patterns as I do dyeing.
Fibre East was my third show as a vendor, Wonderwool Wales earlier this year being the first, and Unwind Brighton 2 weeks ago the second.
And I can unabashedly say that I, The Knitting Swede, have the best customers on this planet! (that’s all of you, by the way!)
Every single one of you… whether you came past my stall at Fibre East to :
just to say “Hi” and tell me that you loved the yarn and/or pattern you bought at Wonderwool / Unwind, or
you contacted me just before Fibre East to ask me to set aside a particular yarn or colour for you as you couldn’t come by until Sunday, or, (and this is my favourite)
you’d spent your budget, got a couple of skeins anyway, then came back an hour later for another skein…
or the lovely ladies who just came by for a laugh and to flirt with my Hubby . . . again! :-) (You know who you are)
A truly heartfelt “Thank You” from a happy and exhausted Swede.
I also want to take the opportunity to thank the organisers of Fibre East, you did an amazing job and made it such a joy for us vendors to be a part of FE. I sincerely hope you’ll have me back next year ;-)
P.S. If you couldn't come by here's a picture of my small corner stall just before we finished setting up.
