Alexandra Palace Knitting and Stitching Show October

Fibre East 2013

First year exhibiting; really well organized, fun show-

Axross from me was Longdraw James who I met a few years ago at Wonderwool. He’s now a chemistry student at York but in his spare time (when?) spins and dyes. He is tremendously talented and almost convinced me to start spinning after touching some  of hisblack alpaca fleece which may be the softest thing I’ve ever felt ( resisted this urge as it’s just another activity to get addicted to in a year when I need to organize a wedding as well as do all Debonnaire things). In any case I bought this most gorgeous yarn I watched him spin as it is plied in my favorite purple, raspberry, teal colours. Combines beautifully with my embellished silk – must do something amazing .

and of course there were cute sheep

Debonnaire in Paris-Aiguilles en Fete

Made it back from Paris in 1 piece with van intact however without my credit card machine and most importantly red book which were stolen during breakdown ( along with a camera and some other personal stuff). Those who know me know I put everything in this book so I may have lost some contact details from the last few months. If you gave me these at Sandown( January), Harrogate, boutique de Noel or red cross, I would love an email. However, if you try to tell me I owe you 5 skeins beaded silk, beware I have a memory like a hawk….
amazing show, all the stalls were beautiful. Thank you to all my wonderful clients and Francois, Ellen and Anne for helping me out
