Carp Fair Demo
This is the last Demo until spring. the carp Fair was celebrating its 150th anniversary this year. It was a beautiful weekend cool in the morning and hot by mid afternoon. There were more people their than ever before. We demoed an extra hour. It was alot of fun chatting with everyone that came by
Here is my display, I was making sheep again.
Here is hand spinning on her tiny wheel. I think it’s called a road bug. It’s designed so you can spin sitting in the passenger seat in a van.
This is Julie, She was working on an inkle loom and a 4 harness table loom and
This is Bernadette, she is showing me how to use combs. They are English combs I think.
And last but not least is Linda who is making a tail spun yarn.
We where not the only ones sharing our passions.
There was more to this display but I couldn’t get a good shot with the sun in my lens. All in all I think everyone had a great time.

Lots of interesting things to see – and good weather too!
I like the shawl you have on your stand – it’s a beautiful rainbow of colours.
Thanks Lyn, the colours are not my usual. I was very nervous dying it.
Very nice display. I agree with Lyn the colors in the shawl are beautiful. I love the hats as well. Looks like you had good turnout and nice weather!
Thank you Marilyn. I sold the pink and purple Viking hat last week end.
I like the colours too 🙂
It looks like there were lots of interesting stands, were they grouped together by interest?
Thanks, Zed. We are all in the antique/steam display section but that takes up a huge amount of space. A couple of football fields/pitches.
Your display looks gorgeous Ann and looks like a great weekend all round, I love that shawl to 🙂
Looks wonderful Ann. Why is it called the Carp fair? Is that a place name or is it for the fish? Your booth looks great.
Thanks Ruth. It is the name of the town. It is named after the river that runs through town. I assume there are or were carp in the river.
