Autumn leaves begin to fall and it’s time for us to pack our project bags and head to Rhinebeck for The New York State Sheep and Wool Festival, 21st – 22nd October. This event is one of the largest annual gatherings of fiber-arts enthusiasts in the United States!

This year we’ve had lots of to celebrate, with our anniversary Issue 21, the reprint of our revamped Issue 1, plus the release of Wool Journey Shetland. Our excitement levels are particularly high for one more reason, our official launch of Bristol Ivy’s Knitting Outside the Box!

Knitting Outside the Box is part creative exercises, part insight into the design process. Bristol guides the reader (and knitter) through the techniques she herself uses as a designer to explore and push the endless possibilities of knitting. For any knitter who has mused on the question ‘What if?’, Bristol encourages an experimental approach, with her generous spirit and enthusiasm imbued in every exercise and explanation. We can’t wait to share this next Pom Pom Press adventure with you!

Like last year, our friends at Merrit Bookstore are hosting us, so if you are are heading to the festival, make sure you pre-order your copy via the Merritt Bookstore’s online shop. You can then collect the books the festival, where you can have your booked signed by Bristol Ivy herself, and admire all the knitted samples!

You’ll find Merritt Bookstore and Pom Pom Press in building B, and make sure you catch Bristol’s talk on Saturday as part of their Tales Of Yarn series. Please note, the Tales of Yarn space is at the end of the bookstore space and seating for talks begin 15 minutes before the scheduled event.
