Things I learnt at FibreFlurry

We had a fab time at Fibre Flurry this weekend. It was quieter than last year but it was still a great weekend. I love the social side of shows and meeting friends, old and new as well as meeting customers and people I have talked to on Twitter.

As usual I didn't take many photos but I did have to take one of our afternoon tea in the middle of our stand...


Tea in a proper tea-pot :)

I got some knitting done; I finished the baby hat then did a few more puffs. Excuse the poor photo, it is taken with my phone and a bit blurry. 


 So things that I learnt this weekend?

  • You can never take too many sheep bags to a show.......I thought I was overdoing the sheep theme so held back a bit this time and ran out by 11am.  Bad Nic!!  I'm sending out some today to make up for it but if you missed out and would like to buy one, here are the sheep that everyone wanted in my shop...
  •  Simple counting is too much when you haven't had enough sleep and you may have to rip a hexi-puff down three times before you can get it right. 
  • Travel lodges are confusing places and should you get out of the lift on any floor, it all looks so similar that you might end up standing outside the *wrong* room for five minutes trying to make your key card work before realising that you are on the wrong floor....sorry room 228!

I'm not surprised you sold out of the sheep bags, they are fabulous! I hope you got lots of that fabric. I wish I could have gone to FibreFlurry. I really wanted to go, but what with being unable to drive because of my drugs (and not having an automatic car anymore) and not having a lift, I couldn't go. :-( I'm glad you had a nice time though.

yes, a sheep bag will always tempt me too.

I suffered a similar experience to your Travelodge one in a French F1 this summer... All they need to do is put FLOOR ONE Outside the lift in an appropriate language, and we'd all feel less like we may turn a orner at any moment and run into a Minotaur...
