Virtual Perth Festival Of Yarn

Global pandemics. They don’t half put a dampener on our normal yarns gatherings, don’t they?!

Most yarn shows have been cancelled this year and it has been really interesting to see how different shows handle going virtual. 

Perth festival of yarn is the show I really want to talk to you, a show dear to my heart and close to home.

Now I am going to be honest, from a vendor side of things, shows are hard work (we all love it) prepping, making stock, deciding on booth layout, packing, all the little fiddly bits and setup day. However one of the main reasons I do shows is to see all you folks. Familiar faces, finished projects in Rusty Ferret, there is always someone who has made me a slice of cake, or a bit of tablet. The odd tunnocks tea cake. And I am finding it really difficult this year not getting a chance to chat with you all, on top of no longer having fluph.

Ok, enough reminiscing. Perth Festival of yarn is virtual this year on the 12th and 13th of September (Saturday and Sunday) 10 am until 4 pm. Now Perth is doing things differently from other shows in that all items to purchase will be done via their website ( so you can get the sense of ALL THE THINGS like you would attending the show itself and all items for sale are exclusive to Perth. So you are going to get some things that you can't get anywhere else. And who doesn’t love limited edition! 

This perfectly leads me onto what I have dyed up for the show and I really hope you like them.
