A big Thank You…

A big thank you to everyone who helped out at our stand at this years Knitting & Stitching show. It was one of our most successful shows and  Maureen,who was part of the organising team, sent a great email today describing the show.

“The interest in our felt was mega! Basic & Beyond forms all handed out, more copies made and they’re all gone too. Lots of people either joined or renewed their membership. Many, many vendors and artists commented on how good our stand looked. I think we all agree on that! Well done set up team, especially Eamonn who help with the structural work. Gotta love a man with a hammer!
The theme of hats was a definite winner and got such a positive reaction. The fibre from DHG was extremely popular, and by the end of Friday there were only about 25 bags left, and at the end of the show it’s all gone! We could have sold almost twice the amount! The white was gone by lunch time Thursday. And I was asked for Wensleydale several times.
The learning curve classes were popular as always, well organised and prepared by the team.
So, well done ladies, I had a ball working with you all. The only thing missing was our Holly.” (who is away in the US and greatly missed).

Knitting & Stitching Show

The Show opened today in the RDS so if you are planning to attend please come and visit the Feltmakers Ireland Stand at N29, there is a fab display of felt hats made by some of our talented members.

The RDS have been really helpful this week when we held a two day masterclass with Jeanette Appleton in the beautiful Minerva Suite – thanks to all the staff of the RDS who made us very welcome.
