June 23rd and 24th   WOOLFEST   Cumbria.  2 days in the lovely Lake District area showing and selling my looms and all the new things I have made in the winter.  Probably my favourite fair because of its Northern appeal but also because I can take my van off into the hills after a busy day and commune with the beautiful Herdwick sheep!

“You hit just the right note of informative and inspiring.”

"Thank you for giving us all a unique and memorable day.  It all sounded fun in the 'blurb' but the reality was amazing - your hospitality, the quality of info, the plants and the magical place gave us a view of another world."  Denstone and Stafford Spinners
