We were delighted to welcome over 500 people to our fifth Wool Market. You can see from the pictures below that the market was buzzing. We asked people what they liked best and comments included “The wooliness” “Browsing and chatting! Variety!” “The stalls and atmosphere.” “Café just wonderful this year.” “Yarn swap is a great idea.”
Customers had previously 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. So, as well as welcoming back many popular stalls from previous years, we had some great new ones selling yarns, fibre and lots of other things you can use to make wonderful projects. See the full list below.
