Hello! We've got a few quick bits of news to share with you.


We're now on Threads! It's the new social media platform from Instagram. We'll be sharing updates from there just like we do on our current platforms.
Knitted fingerless mitts.


This year's pattern is available to download if you missed it. The fingerless mitts are available in a knitted or crochet version for £1.50. You get a downloadable PDF. The money goes to Macmillan Cancer Support.

Our cotton bags are now available to order online, if you forgot to pick them up at the show. They're the same price - £5.00 for a tote bag, £8.00 for the notions bag, or £12.00 for both. You just need to pay for postage. We can only ship within the UK.

Wool Gathering retreats

We've been thinking about ways we can grow, without adding a new festival. The calendar is already absolutely chock full of them and we don't want to overstretch ourselves.

Instead, we're considering adding new mini wool gatherings. These would be retreats
based on fibre crafts, where we get together in accommodation and run some workshops focussing on specific skills.

Each time we'd focus on a different fibre craft and have different workshops and tutors. For example, one retreat might be about crochet with a workshop on Tunisian crochet, and another might be based on needle-felting with a beginner's workshop.
We'd also allow plenty of time to sit around and work on your current project in the company of like-minded people.

If that sounds like something you'd be interested in, please fill in our survey. We want your thoughts before we make any big decisions.

Next year

We're still in discussions with the venue about next year's date, but we'll be in touch when we know them.
