A year ago I was getting ready for my first ever fibre festival. I had just finished a project I was very proud of: my Moroccan bag and I was excited to breathe all the yarn fumes and see so many knitters and crocheters in one place.
It is hard to believe that one year after I am getting ready again: choosing what FOs to wear, getting my shopping list ready, planning what stalls to visit first and this time also preparing the classes I will be teaching there. I am so excited and honoured to be part of the amazing line-up of teachers taking part of the EYF this year and I am doing my best to make sure that everyone enjoys my classes and has such a good experience as I did last year.
It is a funny thing when so many knitters and crocheters get together, if you haven’t experienced it you are in for a treat: it seems that when we get together we become even more enthusiastic, supportive and kind to people that we may have never met before. Who cares where we come from or what we do for a living when we have yarn and craft in common? No one. And that is the beauty of this community.
Hope that you have an awesome time if you are lucky to be in Edinburgh this weekend, I will be wearing my Moroccan bag so make sure to say hi if you see me around 🙂
