Day 5 of Show Prep

Today I had a bit of a play. I hand painted threads. It's funny how tastes change. During the first couple of years of having the shop I couldn't keep up with space dyed threads. Everybody wanted them. Then about 18 months ago sales slowed. I stopped dyeing them AND nobody asked for them. Everybody wanted Solid Hand Dyed Threads. It seems that tastes are starting to sway back toward space dyed threads. I started on a range of colourways and thread types. I'll be taking them to the Stitches and Craft Show, may as well do a bit of market research while I'm there.

I've popped into the other BrisStyle Girls' blogs today to catch up on their preparations for the Show. Go and visit Helen, Chris and Louise to see how they're doing. I can feel the excitiemnt building.
