This was our first trip to Fibre East and it was certainly an adventure!

The British summer decided to to do its worst on the evening before the show when the heavens opened. However the weather was no match for the determination and resilience of wool lovers! Despite some difficult conditions the crowds came undaunted and a good time was had by all the visitors and traders.

Never one to miss the chance for new footwear Debbie bought new pink wellies on the first morning and spent the rest of the weekend with snug dry feet!

It's always good to visit a new part of the country with our travelling shop so we can show our range of yarns and dyes to so many new yarn and hand dyeing enthusiasts. It's lovely as well to meet up with customers and friends we've only known online and to finally put faces to names.

Unfortunately the wet ground conditions meant we had to redesign our stall a little and we weren't able to have our full display of yarns on show. If you were looking for a particular yarn and couldn't see it at the show please contact us and we will do our best to help.

Thank you to Jan and her team of wand-waving fairies and to the farm staff for working so hard to keep the show on the road!
