October whizzed by and as Daughter of a Shepherd celebrated its first birthday, there was a lot happening behind the scenes which I will gradually reveal over the coming months. One of those things is the London festival, Yarnporium, where I am thrilled to say that I will be popping up on Sunday 6th November in the Indie Maker Spotlight lounge on stall J.
The ladies from Yarn in the City are your hosts for Yarnporium and describe it as a “two-day celebration of sweater weather, yarn, fibre, friends and the making community” with vendors from around the UK alongside a series of workshops. The show, at King’s College on The Strand, opens on Saturday 5th November at 10am and runs through to 5.30pm, before reopening on Sunday 6th November at 10am through to close at 4pm. Tickets can be purchased in advance until end of Tuesday, or you can pay on the door and there is a list of all the other stalls plus a bundle of info over on the website: Yarnporium
I will be taking my beloved Daughter of a Shepherd DK yarn and cotton tote bags to Yarnporium along with the range of FARMERS’ creams, lovely books from Little Toller and Candlestick Press, plus a new guest yarn that I am unbelievably excited to welcome into the flock. I’ll be revealing more about this wonderful wool later in the week on the blog, and it will be available in the online shop from Monday 7th November at 8pm BST but be warned, there are very limited supplies.
Hoping to see a few of you at the festival where I’ll also be dishing up some of my favourite Bonfire Night edibles including Parkin, well that is if Mr K doesn’t get to it first! If he does, or if you can’t make it to London, the perennially favourite Parkin recipe is here.
