I LOVE Pom Pom Quarterly, and I’ve got a big designer-crush on the amazing women who created it: Meghan Fernandes and Lydia Gluck. They are a British + American design pair, who started Pom Pom in London in 2012.
A couple of years ago, when Meghan planned to move back to the US, we had a chat about my experience of running Tin Can Knits with an ocean between Alexa and I. Their creative collaboration has clearly thrived despite the distance, as Pom Pom just seems to get better and better, And of course, they throw great parties too!
Pom Pom Party December 11th, 5:30-9pm at Foyles
I was thrilled to be invited to the Pom Pom Christmas party for the past three years, but it has never been quite the right time to make the trek from Edinburgh down to London. This year I was finally able to say YES, and I’m packing my bags with anticipation. I expect London in the lead up to Christmas will be very exciting and festive!
What am I taking along? The market is a little boutique affair, and I can only fit so much in my suitcase, so I will have a small number of books, including our newest: Great White North. There’ll be some beautiful samples, luscious Rainbow Heirloom yarns including a special new exclusive kit, the Bounce Blanket, which is available now.
Any suggestions on what I should see while I’m in London? Nina and I have all day on Saturday to shop, eat, drink, see art, and generally amuse ourselves… So we’ll be trying to pack it all in! Last time I was there I enjoyed a visit to Liberty, bought fabric for my bridesmaids dresses on Goldhawk Road, and marvelled at the clock gallery in the British Museum. Do you have a favourite exhibit? Let me know in the comments, or get in touch on social media:
