It’s nearly time for us to start packing our bags (and mags!) to head back to the prestigious New York Sheep & Wool Festival. In association with our friends at Merritt Books, we’re thrilled to be part of all the fun and fleece in Rhinebeck, New York. As we did last year we’ll be debuting our newest issue, giving attendees an exclusive preview of Pom Pom Winter 2016, which includes the beautiful colourwork hat designed by Kiyomi Brugin, pictured above. Filled with dramatic wraps, your new must have winter jumpers and cosy accessories, you’ll be able to try on each one as we’ll have the samples from Winter as well as from our other most recent issues.


Once you’ve bought your copy, what could be better than getting your magazine signed by your favourite designer? Well, there are are plenty to choose from as we’ve lined up sixteen of our Pom Pom pals. It’s going to be a busy weekend so make sure you make time to come to the stand and say hello!
