Det var en lang, men god dag i går. LB og jeg tog på tur med Signe (som også har taget billederne i denne post, tak Signe) og Rachel hele den lange vej til Vejle til TexStil messen. Det er en lukket branchemesse, hvor (primært) garnproducenter har deres stande og bliver besøgt af garnbutikker og forhandlere. Derudover er det en mulighed for designerne at komme og snakke lidt med producenterne om fremtidige opgaver.

It was a long, but good day yesterday. LB and I went along with Signe (who also took the pictures in this post, thanks Signe) and Rachel all the way to Vejle to the TexStil trade show. It is a closed show for businesses, where (primarily) yarn companies set up stalls and is visited by shops and retailers. But it is also an opportunity for designers to meet and talk with the companies about future design tasks.

Happy LB and happy me (note that my Wilma vest now fits me, hurray!!)

Det er en lidt mærkelig følelse at være på sådan en indkøbsmesse, når man nu ikke har nogen butik at skulle købe ind til, og jeg må indrømme, at det føltes lidt fladt i går. Men mandag er også den sidste dag af tre for messedeltagerne, og man kan mærke, at folk er ved at være brugte. Alligevel var det en rigtig god dag af flere årsager. Dels var det en rigtig hyggelig tur i bilen, hvor vi fik snakket en masse, dels var det rart at være ude en hel dag og mærke, at det gik fint at have LB med, og endelig er det ganske enkelt en ret fed fornemmelse at se nogle af mine ting udstillet på Filcolanas stand.

It is a little strange to go to such a retail-oriented show, when you don’t have shop to fill with goods, and I have to admit that it also felt a little tired yesterday. But then Monday is the last of 3 show days and it is evident that people are a bit tired by then. Still the day was a good one, mostly because it was a really fun trip with wonderful people. It was also really nice to be able to travel a whole day with LB and realize how easily it all went, and finally it is really rather cool to see some of my designs on Filcolana’s stand.

Jeg har allerede de næste opgaver for både Filcolana og BC Garn linet op og glæder mig faktisk rigtig meget til at give mig i kast med dem.

I have already lined up the next tasks for both Filcolana and BC Garn and I am as happy as a clam with the opportunity of working for both.
