as you may or may not know (but really, how could you not know??!?) Edinburgh Yarn Fest is back for another year!!!
in previous years, it’s been a big, busy event – but last year, it was UNBELIEVABLE. i thought i had dyed enough yarn and found enough help, but…..
…..I HAD NOT.
i was completely overwhelmed – it was amazing, but SO BUSY, and i really struggled. i’m not great at crowds, or noise, or chatting to loads and loads and LOADS of people (bloody autism), and at the end of the two days, i was shattered. and this year, it’s a THREE DAY EVENT (cue screaming!!!).
i’m dyeing even more yarn that last year, and could do with more help as well – which is (hopefully!) where you, lovely readers, come in! i’m looking for helpers to do half day shifts on the Old Maiden Aunt stand at this year’s EYF and help out with sales, assisting customers, tidying up yarn, and anything else that might come up.
here’s what you need to know:
and in return, here’s what’s in it for you:
if any of that sounds good, please get in touch!! email me (info AT oldmaidenaunt DOT com) using the subject line “EYF helper” and let me know your details – name (actual and ravelry/instagram/twitter), location, skills (familiarity with iZettle, OMA products, knit/crochet, languages, previous yarn show experience, whatever!). also include your availability – can you do any of the three days, or specific times? are you only available for one half day shift, or do you want to do more? and is there anything else awesome that i should know about you? do you bake, & will you bring me cookies? (just kidding! well, maybe not kidding….)
i think EYF is amazing, and i know it would be a blast for OMA friends/customers/family to all be there working together – i’m excited to hear from you!!!
