Bobbins Magazine - Buy one for everyone you know!Bobbins Magazine is an awesome knitting/crafting magazine recently published by Rubbish Knitter (don’t let the name fool you, she is far from a rubbish knitter).

There are knitting patterns, book reviews, including one by me, a recipe, a tatting pattern, and other useful articles.  No need to feel embarrassed by your ridiculous crafting mishaps because Bobbins even includes stories of massive craft fails.  If you need help reading a yarn ball band, working out how much yarn you need for a pattern, and/or like ginger cupcakes, buy Bobbins!

A few of the contributors include, audreym, Creating Misericordia and of course, Rubbish Knitter.

You can buy Bobbins online and get it shipped anywhere in the world, or buy it from the Cornerhouse shop in Manchester or Skeins in Glossop.

If you’re on Ravelry, join the Bobbins Group, follow Bobbins on Twitter, and become a Bobbins fan on Facebook.

It’s a ways off, so mark your calendar.  The Vintage Fair will showcase 40 stalls of vintage and retro fashion along with other fun kitsch stuff, like homewares (personally, I have my fingers crossed for finding a Pepto-Bismol pink vintage telephone).

Additionally, there are still some stalls open if you think you may have something to sell.

Here is more information about The Vintage Fair in Manchester (directions included).
