Ashwell Show 2016

August 31, 2016

Bank Holiday Monday was the Ashwell Show and we were (finally!) blessed with glorious weather for it. We had an excellent turn out of members to demo spinning, weaving and needle felting to the show visitors.


The Ashwell Show is the only event we do where we’re right next to the sheep so that visitors can make the link between the sheep and the fleece they’re growing to the woolen fibres and then to the yarn that we spin.


The sheep are from The Merchant Flock so they don’t have far to go, and as the local guild we often have first dibs on the rare breed fleece that is on offer.

A reminder that it’s our first meeting of the new term tomorrow Thursday the 1st September, 7:45pm at The Settlement. Do come along and show us what you’ve been working on over the summer. We’ll also be announcing our new competition!
