Episode 5: Announcements

Hello! Welcome to my blog about my crafting journey.

Just in case you are looking for me on Ravelry it's ellieshek.

First things first, I need to tell you what I have planned for this year so far.

Where to find me?

I'll be vending 2 events which are listed below:

Aberdeen YarnFest

13th May 2018, DoubleTree Hilton Treetops, Springfield Road at 10am-5pm.

Perth Festival of Yarn

8th-9th September 2018, Dewars Centre, Perth times are still TBC

At each of these events I'll be bringing my hand dyed yarns and project bags. So please do come and say hello if your coming. I am excited to meet new and old faces at both festivals. Don't be shy and tell me who you are if I haven't met you before and I do hugs as well if you want one from me.
