I cannot overstate how exciting it was to go to Wonderwool for the first time this week. It was absolutely brilliant (and I spent so much money)!
We met so many wonderful people, including Paul Britain from Classic Carders. We have one of his Drum Carders and absolutely love it. I always recommend his carders to anyone thinking of getting a drum carder or hand carders as they are so much cheaper than any others on the market and work wonderfully, so it was brilliant to actually meet him.
We learned so much about different weaving techniques, especially relating to peg looms and weaving sticks and bought an inordinate amount of wool (both yarn and fleeces).
We camped across the river from the event and foolishly walked to the show. This meant when we left, with 5 huge bags of purchases we were a bit stumped with how we would get back to the camper van! Thankfully, a lovely lad offered us a lift down the road and we thought better of walking the next day.
I am hoping to sell at next year's event as I had such a good time and didn't see anything like my weaving at the show! Hopefully we will bring something a bit different to the show next year!
