Finally the show season has begun! It's brilliant to be out on the road again, pitching up to events and getting to do classes and demonstrations! We're really getting going on this blue warp! It's my first really long warp which can do 8 scarves. 8! I've really go to get my ideas going to make them all look different!
The first show of the season was at the Weald & Downland Open Air Museum and was so HOT! We set up the stand in the hot at 8am, and it only got worse! By Monday lunchtime we were really flagging!
We were really happily situated next to a field of Southdown sheep, they look like teddies, unfortunately it was so hot for them that they hid on the other side of the enclosure in the shade of the tree and ignored us most of the time.
It was great to see some of the regular customers and hear how their journeys into weaving or spinning are progressing and help other people begin theirs! There are definitely going to be some new spinners in the world soon!
