it’s nearly time for the fabulous Glasgow School of Yarn again!! i’ll be in the marketplace once again this year, with as much yarn as i can fit on to my six foot table, and i’m really looking forward to it. it’s been a great event every time i’ve done it, and it promises to be even better this year!
the wonderful P-HoP will have a table in the marketplace again this year as well, and will be selling patterns & other great stuff to fundraise for Doctors Without Borders. last year, myself & a few of the other vendors contributed to a yarny “lucky dip” – but this year, i thought i’d do something a little different. i’ll have raffle tickets for sale at my stall this year, and for the princely sum of £1 per ticket, you can get a chance to win this….
it’s a super-cute handmade “wool love” project bag from Art Equals Happy, stuffed with four skeins of (as-yet) undyed Old Maiden Aunt Organic Corriedale 4ply. this yarn is custom-spun for me, and with 380 yards per skein, it should be enough to make a sweater for most sizes – i’ll dye it for the winner in any standard OMA colourway of their choice!! this prize is worth roughly £70, but could be yours for the price of a £1 ticket – all raffle ticket sales will go straight to PHoP. i’ll draw the winning ticket at 5pm on saturday, but you don’t need to be at the draw to win – i’ll get everyone to put their email/ravelry name on the tickets so i can message you if you’ve won.
so, make sure you come by the OMA stall at Glasgow School of Yarn next weekend – i’ll be there 18th & 19th october from 10am-6pm!!
