Aguille en fete - Paris

We had a great day in Paris on Thursday at the Aguille en fete expo, it was very busy and very hot, but well worth the trip.

Lots of gorgeous yarn, fabric & trimmings.

Plenty of yarn bargains to be had at the morelfilshop

Luxurious mohair/cashmere & silk blends from La Ferme d'Amalthee

graded yarns in vibrant shades from Lafeefil

Plenty of opportunities for knitting and workshops

Beautiful knitting and crochet kits from Elle Tricot

Familiar faces at Toft Alpaca – Falklands merino wool dyed in Wales

Rachel John's wonderful chunky knits and broomstick needles

A fascinating stand with machinery from the button museum and demonstrations of how mother of pearl buttons are made

And the artist's exhibition with displays of sculptural knitting and crochet, wall hangings and pictures.

Some brave knitters taking part in the speed knitting competition.

A great day out, we came back clutching bags of shopping and brimming with inspiration.
