As requested, here are some photos of the incredible samples on the PaperArtsy stand at the Stitches trade show in the NEC in Birmingham. I only had a few minutes to spend at the stand at the end of yesterday & today, so the photos aren’t great. All of my fellow #PATWITS will recognise the various designers, but I did try to include their names in the photos.
If there was an award for the greatest number of samples on one stand, PaperArtsy would win hands down. And every one of them was completely stunning.
Edited at 7.09 18/02.14: I neglected to mention last night the members of the PA guest designer team, whose beautiful work is also amongst that of Darcy, Lin, Jo, Sarah, Lynne & Ellen. If you go to any of the PA blog posts from last week you will find links to their blogs, where you’ll see their work.
Attending Stitches was a great experience. We were so busy on both days & the time flew by. I missed lots of demoes by people like Hels Sheridan, Finnabair & Ali Reeve. I missed Leandra & Lin @YoursArtfully Brown demoing too, but at least I got to say hello to them. I did see a few new items I liked, but it has to be said that, apart from EVERYTHING on the PaperArtsy stand, there was nothing that I thought I would have to have.
And now I have to go to bed. I got three hours sleep last night & I’m feeling quite exhausted now. Thanks for looking.
