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.
Got my first issue of Hemslöjd (Swedish magazine for Arts and Crafts) See more from the magazine here :-) The layout is beautiful, and the magazine is printet on rough uncoated paper. (And the smell -- I luuuv the smell of fresh ink ;o)
Jenn Grant - Eye Of The Tiger. I really like her music. Favorite track is Paradise Mountain from her 2011 album: Honeymoon Punch. I could only find a cover version on You Tube, but If you're on Spotify, do listen to this :-)
