Three Things; Treasury – Knitting and Stitching Show
We love all things textiles and are looking forward to the Knitting and Stitching Show in Harrogate which takes place between the 20th and the 23rd of November 2014.
We thought it might be fun to offer customers, blog readers, social media friends and their friends the opportunity to visit the show with us and or benefit from buying a group ticket at a discounted rate from us.
The organisers Twisted Thread offer discount tickets costing £10 rather than the advance fee of £13 to groups of more than 10 visitors. The great thing about their offer is that you don’t have to attend at the same time as the rest of the group. We will go on the Saturday but you could attend the late night Thursday, Friday or the Sunday, whenever is convenient for you. If you buy a ticket through us we will charge you the ticket value and the cost of a first class stamp to get it to you or you can pick it up from our studio at a mutually convenient time and save the stamp cost.
Although we love the show we don’t much like the dark wintery driving and hassle of trying to find a parking space so we have come up with an offer for you.
We are booking a 16 seater minibus and if you would like to join Sue and Laura there will be 14 bookable seats. You can bring a packed lunch or buy something to eat in the cafe style catering hall at the show or even come out into Harrogate and head to Betty’s tea rooms for a treat.
You can book a basic package with us for £35 which will include an entry ticket and a minibus pick up and drop off from Wirral Country Park car park where you can leave your car all day.
We will need to arrive at the Country Park for 08.45 for the outward journey to Harrogate and we will depart at 17.00 sharp.
Perhaps you would prefer to treat yourself to our £50 package? The upgrade covers the basic package but also includes; a slice of Laura’s cake for the journey an A5 sketchbook and graphite stick sketching pencil for you to note your inspiration and ideas from the show all in a Shore Cottage Studio Jute shopping bag for your purchases.
Our ultimate package for £100 includes everything from the upgrade package with the addition of a half day inspiration workshop at Shore Cottage Studio with Laura and Sue on Sunday 30th November. This reunion will run from 1-4 pm and we will be swapping ideas and inspiration, tips and techniques it isa great opportunity to start a project with your Harrogate purchases and catch up with fiends old and new. Afternoon tea will be served.
So to summarise.
