stitch and story at spitalfield's market_
Jennifer got the opportunity to show off Stitch and Story's beautiful knitwork at Spitalfield's market!
It was a very joyous experience, excellent for getting the word out about Stitch & Story!
Jennifer - somewhereto_ young person
Jennifer and Jen have their own enterprise called Stitch and Story, they produce their own beautiful products, sell wool and blog about all wool related things!
You can see through their blog how intricately put together the enterprise is, with stunning photos and interesting features about other art collectives and events going on all over the world.
Stitch and Story's next step was to hold a stall at Spitalfield's, to exhibit, promote and sell all their hard work. She came to somewhereto_ with her ideas and we were so inspired by her we had to help!
how did somewhereto_ help?
Spitalfield's seemed like the perfect option for Stitch and Story, so somewhereto_ went ahead and found out what could be done! Ray Dervin of Spitalfield's fame assured us that it can take weeks or even months to gain any recognition on a market (especially in the rain). But not for Stitch and Story! Jennifer and Jen took Stitch & Story to Spitalfield's Market where they spent two days in amongst regular traders getting a taste of life on a market and it was an absolute success!
"Jen and I have recently launched Stitch and Story and trading in Spitalfield's was great exposure for us, gaining great feedback on out products. Having recently graduated and with Jen in her 2nd year, setting up and running a business can be quite overwhelming, so we're really grateful to be a part of somewhereto_!" - Jennifer, 24, London
"It was no exaggeration that I jumped up and down when I was given the space - Spitalfield's is the perfect space for our brand! The friendly support and positive energy from the whole team really helped motivate us too!" - Jen, 20, London
