Vendors: Aphaia, Pandia's Jewels, + Treddling Woman

We are so excited about our Vendor Market! We have some truly amazing vendors who will be selling their wares on Saturday, 31-October-2015.

The Vendor Market will be open in the morning to retreat attendees only.

BUT! Even if you’re unable to attend the entire Geeky Puffin Knit Palooza retreat, you can still shop at the Vendor Market from 1pm to 3pm. The cost for entry is £3 or 1 knit or crocheted item which we’ll donate to charity.

The Vendor Market will be held at The Gillis Centre, 100 Strathearn Rd, Edinburgh EH9, UK.

We wanted to highlight each of our Vendors so you can start planning for everything you want to purchase. We aim to enable!

Aphaia is the gorgeous knitting designs of Kirsten Bedigan. Kirsten is one of our teachers (she's teaching Drop Spindling for Beginners and Introduction to Fair Isle). She'll have a booth in the Vendor Market selling her knitting patterns as well as some other fun things.
We took a look through Kirsten's designs and these look interesting to us! How about you?

We saw this shawl in progress and it’s even more stunning in person!

Planetarium Wrist Warmers
Damaris is obsessed with the stars and space so these definitely fit the bill!

Flexure Mittens
These gorgeous top down fingerless mitts are on C.C.'s to knit for this autumn list!

Pandia's Jewels is the fantabulous yarn company of Julia Wardell. Julia is coming across the Pond to join us for the retreat and Vendor Market. We've seen some of the amazing things she's bringing and you won't want to miss her booth.

It's a Machine that Goes Ding!
Did somebody say Doctor Who? Julia is a whiz at dyeing up the perfect combinations of Doctor Who inspired yarns!

Star Trek is a fun obsession for all 3 of us, so how could we not choose one of Julia’s many Star Trek yarns to feature!

Neon Punk - Color Me Happy Kit
Julia’s Color Me Happy Kits are the perfect combination for her new pattern Elemental Shawl. It’s in C.C.'s queue to knit!

Treddling Woman is the wonderful bag shop of Fiona. She's got some unique designs that she'll be bringing to the Vendor Market.

Fabric project bag
Love that it’s a project bag with a long strap, perfect for walking around a fibre festival and knitting at the same time!

Spotted fabric messenger bag
The spotted fabric got our attention. Love how roomy this bag is!

Fold over flap bag
Love this unique design. And the tree fabric is so autumnal, one of our favourite times of the year!
