I teased you at the weekend with a photo of the Stylecraft Blogstars, and as promised, I'm back to tell you more about a really fabulous day. This was the second time that we had been invited up to the Stylecraft HQ at Slaithwaite in Yorkshire, and we had a delightful weekend filled with knitting, crochet, lots of yarn and chat. Some of the Blogstars went to the Knitting and Crochet Guild on Friday afternoon and it looked fascinating. I wasn't able to go as I had to work, but if you want to get a flavour of what they saw, take a look at Kathryn's blog post. I arrived in time for dinner, and it was a very relaxed affair where it was quite normal to bring your your knitting or crochet to the table! Here we all are at the start of the meal - the wine was flowing nicely! From the left, Kathryn of Crafternoon Treats, Juliet Bernard, Jane Crowfoot, Lucia from Lucia's Fig Tree, Annabelle Hill, me, Phil from The Twisted Yarn, Sandra from Cherry Heart and Sarah from Annaboo's House.
|Thanks to Phil for the photo.
The following morning, we met up at the mill. It was really good to see everyone. Not only that, but we were also able to 'meet', thanks to the wonders of technology, two of the Blogstars team who live in the Southern Hemisphere and joined us via Skype. Here are Angela and Zelna getting comfortable in their front row seats for the presentation!
And here they are greeting us!
