2015 Diary Dates

plush fibreMy 2015 diary is already filling up and I wanted to share a couple of events with you. The first is a brand new show in Coventry in March*, called p – Lush, it’s a celebration of everything Alpaca. Organised by a lovely group of ladies – just take a look at their twitter or facebook – their humour and enthusiasm just shines through in every post.  This is going to be one event I shall find it hard to miss.

I pasted below a couple of extracts from their press release to whet your appetite

The shows covers fibre art, luxury creations that speak to you, materials and products to make beautiful things, knit, crochet and textile design, upcycling and making. 

This is no ordinary show. It’s a chance to share your designs and products, celebrate and showcase the skills that allow you to make delicious things for the people you love: products that are soft and warm and inviting – designs that are cute and clever. p-LUSH is a celebration of the slow art industry and connecting designers: share what you love with the world, Sit-n-Knit/Hook-a-Bit to pass on the skills and wisdom that define your unique work. Think alpacas and fibres, inflatable sofas and handmade, innovation and indulgence. The p-LUSH Show has it all.

There will also be workshops and 300+ alpacas showcased in the central arena. 

If you are interested in exhibiting, you can contact the organisers for booking information via their website where you’ll also find full details of exhibitors, location, tickets etc. I’ll be posting more event details over the next few weeks. As we begin the mad rush in to Christmas preparations and shopping madness (I try, but it can’t be avoided so I embrace it!) it’s good to know that a celebration of all things “slow” is there to look forward to. In fact, I’ve sent a link to advance ticket info to Mr T in the hope that I may find a little treat under the tree – why not do the same and come with me!

Follow p-LUSH on twitter  or  facebook  for all the latest news.

*p-LUSH runs 27th and 28th March 2015 at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry as part of the British Alpaca Futurity event.

  • So proud of my crochet pupils on today's  workshop at @ditzyrosemakes . Most had never picked up a hook before, but fuelled by copious mugs of tea, cake & mutual encouragement they can now officially call themselves crocheters! Thankyou all for coming & being such fun to work with xxx
#ditzyrosemakes #grannycoolcrochet #crochet #amigurumi #learntocrochet And so it begins - checking the text actually fits the flatplan, swatching, proofreading & wondering why I put myself through this! New book nerves!!! Really looking forward to sharing this one' progress from plans to print over the next few months

About to cast on a baby cardigan, an excuse to use these beautiful buttons from @textilegarden. I like to use natural fibres and this wool & mohair blend from @thefibrecompany is a firm favourite, especially as it contains a proportion of British wool. We should celebrate our British wool industry & the farmers & shepgerds who give us beautiful, sustainable fibres to work with.

My review copy of @emmavarnam 's new book just arrived. Can't wait to sit down with a cuppa and enjoy this! Perfect inspiration for the ladies on my next granny squares workshop.

Lucky my neighbour saves all hers & what was left is now in  one of my @littlewrenpottery bowls. It feels like we're approaching peak autumn here, the starlings have stripped the rowan tree of its berries, the oak leaves are turning and the forest floor is strewn with sweet chesnuts. This really is my favourite season.
