Let me tell you about the annual visit to the Knitting & Stitching Show at Olympia

I try to get to the Knitting & Stitching Show at least once a year, it’s held in London (though I think there are some other cities that host it) at Olympia in the spring & Alexandria Palace in the Autumn. A fantastic gathering of stalls, displays, workshops and demonstrations. It is on all weekend so try & get there if you can, it’s well worth it. 2017-03-02 12.41.55

This year I managed to not buy any fabric! There was loads I liked but I was shopping for a cutting mat, cutter (yes,  I’ve finally been converted to using one!) Various other bits & pieces of equipment & braid etc.

I’ve fallen in love! With an embroidery machine (no not a man, I’ve got one of those at home & he is very tolerant of all my sewing stuff, so I won’t be changing him any time soon!) So not only do I need to save up about £2000, I need a workshop to store everything in, the boat just isn’t big enough. I looked at both the Brother & Janome machines, I must admit I liked the sound of the Brother one better, but do you have an embroidery machine? Please let me know which one & what you think of it. 2017-03-02 14.02.47Game of Thrones Collage
