Knit & Stitch Show - Harrogate

Well we braved the weather and went to the Knit and Stitch show at Harrogate yesterday.  As you can see from the above goodies, we had a good day.  Have to say though, some of the things I bought I have no idea what to do with - yet!!!!

These are some of the wonderful exhibits on display.

Some incorporate materials that I have no idea how to use, so the photos are for inspiration.

Unfortunately there were lots of stalls that did not allow photography.

(above) This is a bag made from silk rods and was on the Stef Francis stand.
(below) This was one of the fab display boards on the Oliver Twist stand.


These pieces were made from fused plastics and were being exhitibited in the main hall.

This is a second piece by the same person.  It has been stitched into (the word invisible at the top and the letters earth have been cut away). 

It was absolutely stunning in the flesh and it was my favourite piece.

OMG what a great stash you've brought home. I'll be particularly interested to see how the mabling kit works.

How odd that some stalls don't allow photography! I'd have thought they'd be happy to inspire but I love the images you did capture.

I'm watching this space with interest (altho' I think you may need a month off work to get your hands into this lot!)
