…was a wonderful weekend! What a great show – big enough to have lots of great vendors and small enough that it doesn’t get crowded like other, bigger shows.

SADK 2012 Booth setup

Our new full booth set up! I have 8 grid wall sections now and I’m loving all the space!

This was the second year that we had a booth at SADK and this year was definitely better than last year. I think this show is growing really well and I can’t wait for next year!

This fall is super busy for the business – while at SADK, Jennifer of Holiday Yarns offered to carry my bags in her booth at both KnitLab and Stitches East this year which is super exciting! If you’re going to either (or both) of those shows, be sure to check out her booth, she has awesome geeky yarns that go well with my awesome geeky bags!

Bags will be at Rhinebeck again this year – in The Spinning Room booth in Building A. I’m going on Friday to set up a grid wall section for her with about 100 bags so there should be plenty for everyone! (but you still might want to get there early for the best selection – she was mostly sold out by mid-afternoon on Saturday last year)

The next show after Rhinebeck is The Fiber Festival of New England in November and I’ll have bags in the Spunky Eclectic booth again!

Whew! Busy Fall season! I love it!

Another piece of exciting business-y news is this:

That is a screenshot of the new Jane Austen Knits that is out now digitally and out in print later this month. I almost fell over when I was asked to send in a bag for review back in July and I was too nervous to say anything until it actually happened!  IT HAPPENED!!! (I can’t believe it happened!! Did this really happen? Holy crap, it really happened, didn’t it.) Four years ago when I started this little business, I could only dream about having such a year. Thank you to everyone who has helped make this little business into what it became this year! Onward and upward!

    Woohoooo! According to the San Diegans at the airport, you could Clean. Up. with your Doctor Who bags at Comic Con because it’s girlie, and apparently there is NO girlie Doctor Who stuff for sale. So sayeth the 7 year old girl who totally noticed my Doctor Who bag while I was knitting and pointed it out to her geek parents. Who, I’m sure, will be in touch! :^) As might the woman sitting next to them who thought the bag in general was fab! :^D

  • Wow – look at that professional shop! Good going! That is a lot of sewing too… I’m using my little pouch for holding knitting accessories and knitpicks needles. Wish I was going to rhinebeck but umm I just went to Oregon Flock and Fibre and may have had a little splurge….

  • Stacey says:
