The day would be spent in in a puprose-built large wooden conservatory-type studio with stained glass windows and lots of skylights. Outside, a beautiful lake, or maybe a forest, or the beach. There would be a 2 Michelin star cafe (with the world's best Earl Grey tea) and bar area.
People would be free to come and go as they pleased throughout the day and there would be........
- access to unlimited beautiful yarns, beads and fabrics
- a whole wall of shelves containing reference material/reading with comfy chairs and sofas in which to relax, chat and try various crafts
- felting and spinning demonstrations
- lit display cabinets with gorgeous finished items for sale
- inspiring images on the walls
- video instruction/demonstration rooms - how to develop and adapt your ideas in knitting and crochet
- a yarnbombing workshop
- an option for music and inspirational lighting in the different rooms
- the use of drawing and painting materials as well as photographic equipment with the digital means of manipulating images
- e-Learning courses for a whole selection of various crafts, accessible online when you get back home.
I don't think that I would actually get very much done because I would be so busy drooling over yarn, beads, fabric, finished items for sale and reference books, as well as doing my best to sit in on most of the demonstrations. The Earl Grey would most definitely have to be checked out too.
If I ever dream about this place, I will let you know what it's like!!! :)

This has been an excellent first Knitting and Crochet Blog Week for me and I have really enjoyed the days that in which I have been able to participate and the new blogs I have read - there's a lot of interesting and excellent work out there.
Many thanks to Eskimimi Makes for all the organisation!
