Around 350 people came to our fourth Wool Market and we had some great feedback about the atmosphere, music and cake - as well as the great stalls, of course. Here are some pictures.
We were very pleased to welcome back so many stallholders and also enjoyed some new ones. We had a wide range of wonderful woolly stalls and many of them did demonstrations too! See below for the full list.
