I'm sure it will only grow as well as the wooly fleeces it provides. I've got some of my highlights below, where you there if so what were yours?
Brinkley Looms a cornucopia of beautiful colours and unique easy to set up looms. Which is now on my crafty wishlist. I've always wanted to take up weaving and have had a small go on my friends loom but the size/storage was always a factor. This could easily be done at home and stored upright when not in use.
How can you not love a stand attended to by a large crown wearing chicken, Sewsister were doing felting demonstrations and had a wonderful selection of kits and fabric. We all ended up buying from this stall.
Easyknits was just a full rainbow of yarn to choose from and I'd love to own one of every colour, I must make room in my stash before I go to Woolfest next year.
The Natural Dye Studio had a beautiful palette of vibrant colours but in softer tones, with a selection of patterns to go with your yarn. They also produce a yearly mystery blanket club where the yarn for the entire project is delivered to you and then you get a pattern a month to follow until completion. That may well be another wish list addition. Instead I left with a bag of mixed yarn and dreams of a shawl by Autumn.
Workshops and demonstrations were around every corner, here is Thread of Life tutoring on the art of crochet, a personal favourite.
There is something magical about watching people spin, it's something I'd love to master one day but this lady just made it look so simple.
Giant knitting produced on giant needles, these were amazing but I have images of my kids battling it out with these beauties, the end product looked great and it's a great way to use that stash up.
I spent waaay too long stood in Spin City watching this lady demonstrate spinning on way are the most beautiful looking spinners I've ever seen. There beauty alone was nearly enough to get me giving it a go, but I resolved not to till I get rid of my already here stash.
Bunting, bunting everywhere.
Knitted, crocheted, sewed it really added an extra element to the festival feel of the event.
