Saturday 4th of December: A visit to Loop and a ticketed evening event!
Join us for a memorable day at Loop with Aimée Gille of La Bien Aimée, Paris, and Jonna Hietala of Laine Publishing to celebrate the publication of WORSTED, a Knitwear Collection, and La Bien Aimee's newest yarn, Corrie Worsted.
Book signing and trunk show with Aimée Gille of La Bien Aimée and Jonna Hietala of Laine Magazine 11-4pm
In conversation with Aimée and Jonna 6:30 pm - 8 pm
Aimée will be with us during the day with a trunk show of gorgeous samples from her new book 'Worsted' as well as popping back in the evening with Jonna Hietala of Laine publishing, the publisher of the book, to talk about their collaboration and the new book.
Aimée and Jonna will be on hand from 11-1 pm and again from 3-4 pm to sign books and show you some of the beautiful samples from the book, help with yarn colour ideas and simply to say hello. This is open to all as the shop will be open as usual.
Ticketed Evening Event: Following the book signing event, Aimée and Jonna will be popping back in the evening from 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm and be in conversation to chat about the book, knitterly things, publishing, and their collaboration. The talk should last about 45 minutes, followed by time to answer any questions and chat informally. We will be limiting this event to 25 people, so please book your tickets in advance. This conversation will be live-streamed on Instagram, and possibly taped, so if you have any concerns about being seen in the background, please bear this in mind before booking.
Please note that our shop closes at 5:30 pm and we will re-open in time for those with a ticket at 6:30 pm.
There will be drinks and nibbles to celebrate both the launch of this beautiful book and the joy of meeting up again like this. There will also be a lovely gift to attendees of a special bag to mark the occasion of La Bien Aimée, Laine Publishing, and Loop being together again.
The evening event will be at Loop, and all precautions still apply as far as wearing a face covering when not eating or drinking. Our windows will be open part of the time, so please dress accordingly - time to get out your woolens!
We are so looking forward to seeing everyone, and if you plan to spend the day, you'll love our neighbourhood this time of year with its festive lights and atmosphere; there will be plenty to see and do! Islington, and particularly Camden Passage have wonderful independent cafes and shops.
Please note, for the safety of our staff and our customers, we will be limiting the number of people in the shop at any one time during the day and ask that you are mindful of those waiting by limiting your time shopping. Thanks so much for understanding. We want everyone to have a chance to say hi and enjoy themselves.
