Y A R N event at Standun

I spotted on Facebook that Standun in Spiddal were having an event instore called YARN and due to my obsession with all things wool and cosy I clicked thru to check it out.

The event itself was free you just had to RSVP thru eventbrite and I ordered two tickets on for me and one for my mom-also addicted to yarn...

So off we went and we had such a fun evening-we were welcomed with drinks on arrival and invited to look around the store-there was 20% off all full priced items for anyone at the event. I have to say I have not been to Standun in a few years but I will for sure be back before Christmas-there are so many beautiful gift ideas for all ages-much more than what I remembered from my last visit. 

I have a soft spot of course for kids items and home decor and I really enjoyed the set up of the kids section with great price points for all kinds of gifts for all occasions.

Next up was the fashion show which included not just knitwear but also occasion wear again to suit lots of ages and featured in the show were pieces by Deirdre Duffy-Wild Cocoon which were STUNNING. Hand woven on a large floor loom using colourful lambswool they were just gorgeous..

The Aran room

Down in the Aran room there was lots of Aran knitwear to look at and also the 'Wall of Aran' which covered the wall showing Aran stitches-something I would love to learn more about-I would have loved to have seen a demo on this!

There was an area for local businesses too where we got to see and taste- Micil poitin, Connaught pale ale beer cocktails, Connemara organic seaweed, Ri na Mara skincare and Sliabh Aughty honey. 

Overall, it was a lovely night out and definitely put Standun back on my radar for shopping!! We left with goodies which included a fabulous €20 voucher for Standun, Galway Now magazine, face cream, knitted keyring and a handy sewing kit.

I also bought an item using the 20% off for my new craft room so I will have a cute pic of that soon-keep and eye on my Instagram pieces_by_aideen
