Craig and I have just returned from a wedding and business in Perth. We took some time to visit a number of needlecraft shops in the area. It was great to meet Jo Sharp at her new retail outlet in Cottesloe. She was extraordinarily generous with her time and gave us a lot of great ideas for having garments made up and displayed for customers to try on in store. Haven’t quite figured out where I am going to put it yet but I am working on it.
She also hinted at new designs in the pipeline and said the valuable feedback she is getting in the shop is helping to shape that direction. Nothing like getting up close and personal with the people who will knit and ultimately wear her designs. Jo Sharp is one of our main yarn ranges and we stock most of the colours in each.
