The Trunk Show

The Trunk Show was a huge success!!!

The Village Yarn Shop looked festive with bunting hung and Christina's pattern samples hung everywhere.

We had the tea table set with newly knitted tea cozies and lots of real china.

Aren't the tea cozies fun!!!! You can find the red and white roses cozy in the book "Wild Tea Cozies" and the cream and strawberry cozy is in "Tea Cozies 2". Christina made up the pattern for the blue and white striped cozy.

Everyone loved the cake table, complete with chocolate, gluten-free chocolate, butter-pecan, Victoria sponge, and lemon cake with ruffle icing.

We had somewhere between 75 and 80 people show up!!! It was a terrific evening and the shop was bursting with good cheer.

There was a table at the entrance with all of Christina's patterns. I didn't get a picture of the shop when things were really busy but you can see we started with quite a good-sized group.

In the center-back of this photo is a glimpse of the newest pattern which is "coming soon". Everyone wanted to try it on and we all can't wait for the written pattern!

Thanks to everyone at Village Yarn Shop for letting Christina have a trunk show!

I've been wondering how it all went - would have so loved to have popped in and seen it for myself. I'm so glad that it was a huge success - it all looks yummy and I can't wait to see the new pattern! :o)

It looks like SO much fun... and yummy.

I just told a friend of mine that I wanted to learn to knit after perusing Tea Cozy 2 at the library. Such cute tea cozies.

I just saw "Adrift" shawl hanging in the picture. I ws the lucky winner of that pattern on Cristina's blog. She has the most beautiful patterns and your shop was the perfect place to show them off. Wish I could have been with y'all!
