A Successful Woolfest

Last weekend was Woolfest and, as always, we had a fantastic show. We always travel up to Cumbria a day early and spend Thursday exploring the Lake District before we set up for the show on Thursday evening. Below is the spot by a lake, possibly Loweswater, where we had our breakfast on Thursday morning.

Afterwards we headed to Stott Park Bobbin Mill. We've been once before and really enjoyed it again. We were taken on a tour of the historic mill and shown how the bobbins were made and how life was for the workers. I definitely recommend it! It's a very interesting tour!

When we arrived at the show, this is what greets us - an empty cattle pen and 3 tables.

It took us about 3 hours to transform the stall to this:

We had a slow start on Friday morning but the afternoon and all day Saturday was very busy! We only had time to look around the show before opening on Saturday. There were lots of cute sheep. These were the cutest.

We also came across this fun display:

On Sunday we drove on to Scotland where were spending a few days with my sister in law and her husband. After the 7hour drive we enjoyed a bit of time relaxing and knitting in their garden on Sunday evening.

Thank you to all the lovely regular and new customers who made Woolfest another successful show!
