Workshops for the Knitting & Stitching Show

by Mabel Figworthy » Fri Feb 09, 2018 9:29 am

It's only February, but they start preparing early - I've just sent in my workshop proposals for the Knitting & Stitching Show at Ally Pally in October :shock: . I put in seven proposals, of which to teach no more than four; that should give them plenty of choice :-). It's always exciting to find out which ones they pick (and it's not always the ones I think they should have picked...)

What a fabulous choice. (I've done two of them already, so that would help my decision making, anyway!)

A hard task- to choose 4 out of 7 as each is beautiful. Personally I would choose all the 7. Very well done, Mabel

Teaching four is quite hard work enough as it is, thank you :lol:

But oh how hard it is to choose. A great collection of your gorgeous ideas and "yes" it will be interesting to see which 4 they choose. :D

It's a great idea to give them a choice Mabel, but they are all so beautiful I'm sure it won't be an easy decision!

Me Too!! :?

You've certainly put a great deal of thought into your choices...I'd be hard pushed to decide which ones! :roll:

I'd love to come to one, too. Don't suppose you ever do Harrogate, do you?

These are all lovely. I would find it difficult to choose too.

Serinde, no, just London, because I have a kind and accommodating sister-in-law there (and I just love walking in the London parks and cemeteries :-) ). Overnight accommodation would push my expenses up so much that it really wouldn't be worth it - K&S don't pay any expenses whatever (and you're not allowed to charge extra for expensive kits). It's a good thing I'm not trying to make a living out of it :lol:
