The Mender's Friend!

We are all making do and mending (visibly and invisibly), and there are lots of online tutorials and excellent books available. Now all your mending essentials are here in one neat tin.

Never search for a suitable needle and thread or spare piece of fabric again. Everything is to hand and you can of course add your own threads and fabrics and those spare buttons often attached to new clothes. You know, those ones you put in a safe place...

The Mender's Friend tin measures 9.5cm x 6cm x 2cm high and comes complete with

  • a selection of 9 different fabrics from heavy waxed cotton to denim, tweed, sturdy linen plain and patterned, and cottons plain and patterned too
  • 4 needles including a serious steel one 9cm long, two smaller sized sharps and a good blunt needle for darning woollies
  • 5 different threads from strong linens and a heavy cotton to finer qualities and a natural wool for darning
  • essential buttons and safety pins for good measure

Just a few rows while I finish my coffee.

Early on Day Three - before the crowds
Interesting mix of people and some great new contacts made today. And the yarn supplies are shrinking 🤗
Had a grand first day at Harrogate @theknittingandstitchingshows and this is the only pic I took. The hand worked back of this lovely customer’s jacket! 

(To be fair, my phone was pretty busy being a card machine😊)
Set up and (almost) ready for Day One tomorrow.

With huge thanks to my star setter-upper who put up with my pernickety ways and took this pic.

Find us in the Textile Gallery, Hall M, together with lots of lovely artists and makers.

Almost finished packing for @theknittingandstitchingshows Harrogate but wee niggly things to sort yet. Nice to be this far long in the process though. 
Back to prep for @theknittingandstitchingshows in Harrogate next week.
Yarns of all sizes now packed! 
If you are coming to the show I will have some serious yarny bargains for you😉
