It's very nearly one of our favourite times of the year: Yarn Tasting time! It's happening on the 14th of September (a Friday), and the behind-the-scenes preparations are revving up. If you haven't experienced a Yarn Tasting before (we've had three so far), it's an evening of yarny frolics when we get to play with the new yarn and fibre that are coming in for the autumn and winter, as well as some old favourites. We have lots of prizes and refreshments and a great deal of fun. And we have a very special guest. The lovely Ysolda Teague is joining us this year. She'll be talking to us about her designs and there'll be samples to try on and exclaim over. (Her workshop the next day is fully booked, though. We're really not surprised.) If you want to have a look back at previous Yarn Tastings, you'll find Julie's pictures of 2009 and 2010 on her blog, and our report of last year's is at this link. Tempted? We thought so. You can click over to book yourself (or a friend) a place right here. We'd love to see you.
