We’re back from our weekend show in Chester! Yowzer, where do I start.
Well, first things first. An absolutely HUGE thank you to everyone who came – so many of you travelled a very long way, and faced huge challenges to do so. Thank you so, so much. There is no question that the real pull of any show is the opportunity that it gives us to see our lovely Poshies in real life. This was such a lovely laid back show too, that it felt like we had time and opportunity to spend a few minutes chatting with each of you. And I think we made some new friends too!! These are the memories that will tempt us into doing another show next year, if we possible can manage it.
I also want to say a big thank you to Andy & John for hosting the show, and putting so much work and thought and time into making it a huge success. And to all my fellow stall holders, who were just as kind and welcoming as they always are when we make our occasional appearance!! I was especially happy to be placed next to Jeni, even though we didn’t get much of a chance to catch up, because we go back a looong way (and if I recall correctly, was how we got to know Andy in the first place).
I haven’t any photos to show you of the weekend, unfortunately, but I’m sure there will be lots popping up on the blogs and Ravelry over the next few days. We took a crazy amount of yarn with us, and brought enough back for either one giant update, or two normal sized updates, I haven’t decided which yet. I’ll let you know later in the week. It was interesting to see the yarns that were most popular (apart from the orphans, which were without question the stars of the stand) – completely opposite to the ones that sell fastest on the shop updates! Which is quite fortunate, as that means that the ones we’ve brought home are the ones that our online customers seem to like best. So if you couldn’t make it this weekend, don’t fret, we’ve got lots and lots of lovelies left for you!!
We’ve packed up a little early yesterday, because we wanted to make sure we got home at a reasonable time, and it’s a good job that we did, because the rain started, and we ended up having to unload everything last night, as gaga with tiredness as we were. So I’m running on empty today. I’m just going to putter around, tidying things away, catching up with all the emails and messages and jobs that need doing after the show. Then I might take the next couple of days off and just go FLOP.
I feel like I’m forgetting something……… I’m probably forgetting lots of things! It’s awfully good to be home.
