UK Knit Camp!

knitcampsmall 300x150 UK Knit Camp here we come!!After a long nine hour drive to Stirling, we arrived at the University campus to setup the stand ready for the opening of the Marketplace on Friday morning. There were about 50 or so vendors, from designers to yarn stockists, from indy dyers to button stands, from felt to spinning wheels, the marketplace choices were immense. I really don't know how the customers that arrived over the weekend controlled their spending!
Atomic Knitting Stand

The Atomic Knitting stand was situated next to the lovely Woodland Turnery, who had also driven up from Wales. Their wheels were beautiful and showcased their talent very well - you can glimpse them in the picture above. Opposite us were Blacker Designs and Wool For Ewe, both of which had yarns to die for and a great part of the day was spent staring at the range of colours and yarns available! We also met up with Jon and Roy from Easyknits, the lovely ladies from Injulabo, the Mulberry Dyer, Suzie from The Wool Sanctuary, Woolly Wormhead, Freyalyn, Ewa Kuniczak, DT Crafts, the p/hop ladies and I'm sure there was many more peeps, sorry if I missed you and of course the many customers who visited the stand.

Our new products that we launched, completely sold out and will be available on the website from Saturday. Sign up on the website for the newsletter to find out more. We expect to sell out very quickly once launched on the website!

All in all, I met a lot of new customers, a lot of our regular customers and we did enjoy the event in Stirling. I think this will not be our last visit to Scotland!
