It was Wharfe Wool Fair last Saturday, the second time we’ve organised this fair and it was just as successful this year as last. Organising a fair is hard work but worth the effort as everyone, stallholders and visitors alike, seemed to enjoy it so much.
In addition to the various stalls the local guild of weavers, spinners and dyers were demonstrating.
There was a needle felting workshop with Jenny Barnett.
A drop spindle spinning workshop with Freyalyn Close-Hainsworth.
A wet felting workshop with yours truly.
We only had two hours and the ladies made some splendid felted vessles in that time. Wool used was Bergschaf from Adelaide Walker.
