With a mix of international and UK knitting customers visiting we find it a great way to communicate our brand and products. This is our 4th year exhibiting at CHSI and we have gone from strength to strength at the show each year. This year we will be highlighting our new, contemporary adult knitting pattern designs that complement the children's patterns we are well known for already.
