But back to my knitting group: what a joy it is to spend time with other women that have the same hobby and are so incredibly talented! I cant even begin to describe how exciting is to be part of such a creative community. What I can do is to add to my blog links to their personals blogs and websites so you can see for yourself who they are and what they do :)
The second example are the hobby fairs among which, my favorites are the ones dedicated to wool, yarn and all done by hand. Like the fair that just took place in Rijswijk: 3 days dedicated to all crafts, organised in a former bread factory and bringing together over 120 participants. This year I visited the fair with an alternative reason: to make contacts with some potentials partners for selling my wool. The outcome of my visit are uncertain but I enjoyed every second - I met very interesting and nice people that showed interest in my story and also gave me some nice suggestions. Among the memorable companies that I had the pleasure to visit were "Textielwerk Wol en zo" (great lady leading the shop, with incredible interesting stories), "Zij maakt het" (I met there a very young courageous women that just finished her studies while also having a small business) or "Stof tot verven". After such a nice day at the fair I cant wait for the next one: a fair dedicated entirely to knitting!!!
