Woolfest was founded to provide a showcase and a celebration of the best of wool and wool crafts. The event is all about creativity and design with beautiful quality, amazing colours and skilled craftsmanship. It is also a great day out and was recognised in 2012 when Woolfest won the Cumbria Tourism Event of the Year Award. Woolfest 2016 will be on Fri 24 and Sat 25 June and we’ve pleased say that we will have a stand there again this year.
We’re also back again at Fibre-East in Ampthill, Bedfordshire. The aim of Fibre-East is to celebrate the Best of British: the finest quality British wool made from the fleeces of British sheep reared by British farmers. This remains at the core of everything they do and everything they try to achieve. They aim to enable the continuation of the crafts of hand spinning, knitting, dyeing, weaving, felting and crochet to name but a few. They do this by showcasing the very best of these crafts, by providing inspiration and advice when needed and their wide range of artisan producers offering any equipment and accessories you could wish for.
