I mananged to get a £12 ticket for Friday, 11 October on groupon.  I got it through the app since nothing was showing on the full site.

I was looking forward to the Harrogate event in late November, but the train tickets are nearly three times the price they were last year! I'm hoping they'll be cheaper nearer the time. I'd drive down, but that puts a total of 6 hours driving on top of the day at the show - probably not safe.

Perhaps I should look into the London option.....

I decided not to go to Ally Pally this year and go to the Harrogate show as I've not seen that one before. Hoping to make it a few days away and drop into a few other Yorkshire shops before or after.
Trying to coax myself back into making rather than just looking and dreaming!

I’m going on the Friday by coach with the local Embrioderers Guild.

Pleased to see @UttaRetch back again.

Just got back from Ally Pally.  I'm not sure that I would go if I had to pay the full price, particularly as McCall's no longer has a stand at the show.  However, I did pass a exhibitor who had a small selection of StyleArc and it can be seen at CoolCrafting, J81.

I also stopped by and chatted to Emma Wilkinson whose work is exquisite.

I enjoyed it and managed to buy the two things I wanted and two bundles of fat quarters found their way into my bag. 

It took ages for the bus to get out of London and when we got back to Aylesbury there was a cloudburst!
