Not only will I have my usual stand, but I will be running a short workshop on handcarding both days.
7 May - Wharfewool
One day show in the Yorkshire Dales, local to me. Small but perfectly formed, with lots of Yorkshire indie dyes and other suppliers.
21 May - Tynedale Spinners' Gathering
Tynedale Guild's day of gathering with a few choice vendors, in a beautiful part of the North. Get in touch with the Guild if you'd like to visit.
4 June - Leeds Wool Festival
The third year of this show in Armley Mills in Leeds.
30/31 July - Fibre East.
This show keeps getting better each year - regardless of weather events!
24/25 September - Yarndale.
After missing last year due to various personal happenings, I shall be back in Skipton again this year. My local big woollie show - it feels quite decadent to sleep in my own bed mid-show.
