The season has started.

Living Craft festival at Hatfield House was so lovely and very different to fibre festivals with so many different crafts and food stalls. Mostly very talented people selling their crafts but they were such a high standard - absolutely fantastic. There were demonstrations, and tents to try things out - I saw one about paper making. It was a huge event. I got lost looking for the loos.

I came home with some lovely hand made soaps.

Maggie Stern had a stall with her fabulous weaving and silk fibres. Maggie took the wheel out for it's first trial outing - it sat beautifully in the corner of her stand. Her husband tweeked the wheel for us and it was running really smoothly. I demonstrated most of yesterday and we used the opportunity to promote GOLDS, our Fleece Sale and Fibre East.
