Glasgow Country Living Fair: A Recap

Country Living I think the greatest statement about our time at the Glasgow Country Living Fair last week is that I just woke up from a 36 hour sleep. I managed to get through most of Monday before literally collapsing in a heap on Monday night amid the boxes of kits and yarn we brought back.

The fair itself was busy.  Thousands upon thousands through the doors. It was a great opportunity to meet a TON of blog readers and chat crochet.

In addition to the stall, I also ran a workshop each day for 50 people. It was pure insanity, but we managed it! We used a variation of the Christmas stars.  Each participant received a pattern, yarn donated by Hobbycraft and a crochet hook.  We went through the pattern and learned double crochet, chain stitches and slip stitches.  It was good/challenging/nerve wracking/fun. The workshops were full every day, with a waiting list and more people than not left with a star!

Huge thanks to all of the helpers - Steffi, Julie, Sam, Barbara, Helen, Alice, Guilia, Claire, Tanya, Lesley, and Emma. And especially HUGE thank you to Julia who helped every day.  There is no way I could have run workshops on that scale without help.  Thanks also to the other designers who helped me plan the session in a way that it could work.

And now, to tackle my poor neglected inbox.
