Hello everyone, happy Friday! In just a few weeks Sandra and Derek will be heading down to Harrogate for the Knitting and Stitching Show, this is just a short post to give you some details and where you can find more info.
The show is on 28th November – 1st December at the Harrogate Convention Centre and Derek and Sandra will be bringing down a wide selection of yarns, kits and accessories direct from us here in Shetland, if there are also things we don’t have with us you can order them at the show and we will post them when they get back.
You will find us at stand A662, and there are details here for purchasing tickets and here for travel and other visiting info. If you plan on attending the show and there are specific things you would like us to bring please leave a comment and we will do our best to take it.
It’s that time of year again! The Knitting & Stitching Show takes place from 23rd-26th November at The Harrogate International Centre on Kings Road.
At stand B270, Sandra and I (Kharis) will be there along with Adam, from our parent company Curtis Wool who are based in the area.
Last year we focused on kits but this year we will be bringing all of our yarn ranges, with a few select kits and accessories.

We’ll have our recently released book, Jamieson & Smith A Shetland Story! Which includes 10 brand new patterns by designers from Shetland and further afield.
Keep a look out on our social media over the next week for more snippets of what we’ll be bringing to the show all the way from Shetland!
The Knitting & Stitching Show – Harrogate – stand B270
We’re beginning to get back to normal after Wool Week which was amazing as ever!
However, there’s no slowing down in the shop as we’re beginning to pack up for going to The Knitting & Stitching Show (24-27 November). If you’ve read the earlier post I wrote then you’ll be familiar with the type of products we’re planning to have on the stand.
Living and working in Shetland means travel and delivery of all the items we want to take to the show takes a bit of figuring out! Flights (two of these and pretty much a whole day to get us down to Harrogate) and accommodation for Sandra and myself were booked a couple of months ago so that leaves all the lovely Jamieson & Smith things for the stand.
Just a taster of the kit selection we’ll have available! You’ll have the option of adding in one of our beautiful new gift boxes…
Our ‘Every Week is Wool Week’ printed canvas bag has been so popular over the past year that we’ve added a new design which we really love! We’ll also have our two books – Knit Real Shetland which has patterns using a range of our yarns, and Gladys Amedro Vintage Lace Collection 1. For anyone who makes cushions or similar items then our Peerie Project Bags full of Shetland Wool stuffing are perfect!
All of the above will be available to buy at the show but if there’s anything else you’d like then you can place an order with us. We will have examples of all our yarn types and colours, like a giant shade card! We think this is important so you can really get a feel of the different yarns and see the true colour.
That’s about all for now, got to get back to packing up all those kits! You can find out more about our stand in the show Exhibitor List. I’ll be back again soon to let you know of offers and special products so watch this space!
