Woolfest 2012

Sheila Sluman was a student on Debbie's Dip, Paint, Print, Resist – Creative Ways With Dyeing Yarn at the Association of Guilds of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers Summer School in 2011. Sheila came to the DT Craft & Design stall at Woolfest 2012 say hello and also to show us her fabulous hand dyed sheep made from Wensleydale fleece. The photo really doesn't do them justice, the little sheep are so cute!

The first Woolfest was also our first show way back in 2005 and so we always look forward to our annual trip back to Cockermouth with a special pleasure.

Every year the organisers manage to grow the show yet still retain the atmosphere that makes Woolfest so unique an experience. It is wonderful to spend two days meeting so many yarn, fleece and fibre fans - some for the first time and some old friends.

The worst of the British summer weather didn't dampen the enthusiasm of the crowds and it was one of our best shows ever so a big thank you to everyone who came along - we hope you are all enjoying the fruits of your shopping!

We must say a big thank you to everyone from The Woolclip for putting the show together and making it so enjoyable for visitors and traders alike. The traders-only brew tent was particularly welcome addition this year!

We look forward to seeing you all in 2013!
