All Sewn up

Do you recognise these?.... The fabrics were previously blogged over when they had left their dye baths here.
Now all sewn up and awaiting some photo styling we have long scarves and circle snood scarves...

Tricky ones to photograph, especially the leaf printed one, as some of the details are so light to capture!
I'm hoping to get some photo styling done very soon....the weather has not been very friendly to us this August and therefore is messing with our schedules !!
They shall appear in an online shop near you soon... styled or un-styled...

'Who will buy...'

Yesterday was Lissi Naturally Dyed Products very first offical stall holding at Slaley Show in Northumberland.
The day went well and our stall produced a lot of interest....

The weather hadn't blessed us though and lots of fellow stallers were saying it wasn't as good a turn out as in previous years. It was a good experience as I knew from my set up that I would have benefitted from having more scarf stands and a professional banner.
I met various members of various guilds who have invited me to join them at their monthly meetings, and may teach me how to spin my own yarn! Lots of people picked up business cards and commented that they would have a look and keep us in mind for gift ideas.
All in all a good, yet wet and tiring day was had!

Located in the beautiful county of Northumberland, Slaley's annual country show is on Saturday 14th August 2010. Lissi Naturally Dyed Products will be holding a stall in the craft tent of all the latest products on offer including an exclusive of the long awaited dyed yarn that has been blogged about over the past couple of months.

A great day out for all the family. For more details about the show and how to get there please visit the Slaley Show website.

Would love to see you there!
