We had some great feedback from you about the 2016 Wool market. People loved the demonstrations and and many people asked for even more stalls selling supplies. We love a challenge - especially if it involves us in going to lots of yarn shows to find new stalls.
We're delighted to say that, as well as welcoming back many popular stalls from previous years, we have some great new ones selling yarns, fibre and lots of other things you can use to make wonderful projects. There will be many demonstrations too.
