YarnFest highlights

Hi everyone! So my first real craft fair is over and I had a lovely day and met some lovely people. Here’s my stand at YarnFest, with me and my mum looking a bit chilly (despite the sun being out).

We were next to the very lovely people from Rainbow the Tortoise, who were selling wonderfully brightly coloured knitted tortoises and gifts for children. The charity supports disabled and disadvantaged people in and around Oxfordshire – you can read more on their website.

I sold lots of Christmas cards and a few gift boxes and overall had a very nice day. There was a raffle at 3pm and my friend won some gorgeous wool from the shop ^_^
