Yarn Shop Day... WHAT A DAY!

Oh my, it was so exciting, and overwhelming, and just so BUSY! We had advertised in the local papers, and on Facebook, so had hoped for a good turn out, but hadn't quite expected the turn out we got... Who knew 10% off and goody bags could be so exciting?!

Angela, Jo and I spent the week getting things ready, making goody bags and prettying up the shop...

 

Pretty shelves all stocked and ready to go...

 

When we opened at 10, there was a bit of a queue, which quickly escalated into a bigger queue as more people arrived (and a few technical glitches with the till, ssssshhh!) and the shop was buzzing! When it died down enough for us to breathe a bit, Mr Sconch went round with his camera...

 

Jo kept the till going!

 

And was a bit of a pest...

 

Sneaking up on us!

 

We had workshops running all day, including pom pom making and french knitting for the kids, and polymer clay crochet hook handles for adults (and some adventurous kids!). Nicky did a great job running these, and everyone was really pleased with their creations...

 

Pretty handles!

 

The Sconchlet had loads of fun, joining in with all of the workshops, and eating copious amounts of cake. Even a quick hair tidy up was fun apparently...

 

Smile!

 

And we did some yarnbombing! Simone froze whilst painstakingly crocheting up the bark of our little tree...

 

Yarn bombing!

 

All in all, it was AMAZING. A huge thank you to everyone who came along. Some people stayed all day, which was amazing, as everyone was sitting around crocheting and knitting and nattering, and generally having a lovely time, which ultimately is what I want this shop to be about... Everyone loved it so much, we have another event coming up in June, so keep your eyes peeled!
