Yesterday my mom and I went to the first Arts & Crafts Fair held in Copenhagen. Copenhagen holds many fairs of many kinds, from reptile fairs to book fairs, baby fairs and spiritual fairs, to fashion and food. It's always fun to meet and see kindred spirits, and there is always much inspiration to be found.
This fair held much for many a crafter's joy - jewelry, horn, sewing, patchwork, paper craft, glass work, embroidery, felt, leather and... yarn. And I admit - it was in this department my heartbeat reached volume yesterday :-)
Between quite a few yarn stores one in particular stood out to us: Bente Geil's Geilsk. She has her own yarn brand which she sells worldwide, and runs an online store: geilsk.dk
Bente Geil (above here) and her assistant (third picture down) were so sweet, talkative and helpful, and her yarn was of such a delicate quality - both the wool, tweed and cotton. At a very fair price too.
My mom went home with not one, not two, but three projects bought from these great ladies :)
Both of us with a grand experience! Thank you for this.
(Why I didn't buy anything? Because of this. I have my hands full for now :-) But I will most certainly be returning to Mrs. Geil!
We savoured more yarn dellies; at Kirsten's Sy og Strik
...a sweet idea from Nørkleriet,
and a beautiful children's dress pattern from Karen Noe.
Once back, I discovered that I had mostly shot pictures of yarn. What the heart is full off ... well apparently so is the camera ;o)
One of few images that wasn't yarn was of this lady: Frk. Svendsen, and her collage workshop. Wild and funny stuff :-) Frk. Svendsen website here.
All in all a good fair. A fair fair, hadn't it been for our meet with Geilsk. So glad we did!
