Pom-poms are also going to feature at our exhibition at the Knitting and Stitching Show, one of the biggest craft fairs in Europe (see Tash's last blog post). It's being held at the Harrogate International Centre from the 24th-27th November. Our differently-able participants and volunteers will be selling our products there and teaching visitors how to make poms-poms using our special pom-pom gadgets! (Much better than the old school method using a cardboard circle!) You can now book your tickets to the Knitting and Stitching Show on their website: http://www.theknittingandstitchingshow.com/harrogate. Please do come and say hi to us and have a look at our beautiful craft kits and products, all handmade in the UK & Peru by differently-able artisans.
This month we've also been preparing for other selling opportunities and events. We're especially looking forward to our Candle-lit Carol service on the 1st December at St Peter's Church in Harrogte town centre. It's the perfect time and location for anyone in town to come along after work for some mulled wine and mince pies and sing some traditional carols together. We'll also be selling some of our products - a great opportunity to find some Christmas gifts! The service will feature a beautiful solo performance by acclaimed vocalist and harpist, Lucy Bunce. Some of you may have enjoyed the concert she held for us last year. It will be a wonderful time to enjoy some peace and calm, in what can often be quite a frenetic season. Entry is free!
