Purl Alpaca Designs events in 2015 – April – June
Oh dear we are falling a bit behind. April is nearly over and we haven’t told you where we are going this month! Lucky for us we are only heading off to Wonderwool at the end of the month – OH HANG ON A MOMENT – it’s tomorrow!
Without further ado (and to give ourselves enough time to pack the van this afternoon) here is the list of shows and workshops over the next few months!
This is a marvelous show and we are excited to be driving the beautiful country roads to Builth Wells and the Royal Welsh Showground tomorrow morning. This is the 10h anniversary for the show and we are sure it will be bigger and better than ever! We are bringing our newest collection, Wonderland, as well as the firm favourites and hope to see many of you there. As always, if you turn up wearing what you have knitted of our designs, we will take your picture and include you in our customer gallery! You can buy tickets on the door on the day!
We have been to the iKnit Festival before but it feels like it was in another lifetime. We have changed, we’re sure they have changed too and we look forward to seeing the result. It can only be bigger and better than ever before! With over 50 vendors now booked it promises to be an individual, knitting focused show with bundles of character!
We are hosting another of our popular evening events and this one will provide the last chance this year to see the alpacas in their full fleece. We have just booked our shearing date fr this year and it will be the following week. So should you fancy seeing some proper fluffy ‘pacas, now’s your chance. You can read more about the event here. Should you wish to book this for your WI or knitting group, get in touch!
Immediately after it will be time for another workshop. This one is half full already, so don’t delay should you wish to meet and feed alpacas in full fluff! Kari-Helene is already busy thinking of what to cook for this one… You can read more about our workshops here.
And then we do it all again in June. The evening event will be running from 7pm until 9pm and will be a lovely chance to meet alpacas, see, feel and try on all the beautiful knitwear and do a little shopping. We will be providing some refreshments, Kari-Helene will be making her famous cookies and we will be having an all round fabulous time!
The June edition of the workshop will include skinny alpacas as they will have had their annual haircut only a couple of weeks before. It might also include a baby alpaca or two should one of our pregnant ladies decide to give birth early. This all depends on the summer, if we have a warm and lovely spring, they might just decide it’s time! This is a Saturday and as we don’t get many of those, it has been popular already!
This annual wool and knitting show takes place in one of the most beautiful places we have visited; the Lake District. This is where Kari-Helene and Tracy thought it would be a good idea to go sightseeing in the mountains in Bessie and didn’t quite end up where they wanted to. This is also where we every year meet lots of lovely knitters and generally have a great time!
So that’s it for the next few months. We hope to see you at one or more of these events!
