Crafting Goodies

My Goodies

This huge exhibition has so many talented artists and many interesting crafts to explore.

My favourite stall holder was 21st Century Yarns, with their hand dyed yarns and cloth. I am going to be using these threads for a few different projects. A silk embroidered hand/clutch bag, an embellished cushion.

I also purchased some 100% cotton yarn,  hand dyed in Chile by Araucanía Yarns. It’s a smooth thick yarn, pictured in blue, black and green. Can’t wait to make myself and my son a snuggly scarf with the lush one-off hanks. Each one sold creates more opportunities for the local people of Chile, bringing new skills, jobs and hope fr the future.

Check back here soon to see what I make of these super lush fabrics.
