I recently attended a wool show in Murton, York UK. It is a considerably smaller show than Woolfest that I blogged about here a while ago.
I attended this show two years ago, but last year it was moved to Thirsk in Yorkshire so I didn’t go as I didn’t think it warranted the travel. This year it was back close to where I live, so I decided to bowl along.
Looking at the website I think I counted around 50 stalls, including some of the usual fibre providers such as Adelaide Walker and The Threshing Barn.
I took quite a few pics for you all again. I always asked if I could take a photo, saying it was for a blog for this forum and they all seemed surprised but pleased!
First off let me show you this very distinctive lady – she had felted horns on her head in the form of a headband and when I started chatting I realised her rather fetching bright red specs were indeed one round one, and one square!! I think she looked fab!
Someone who does not take herself too seriously I would imagine, especially when you learn that her site is called Felting Bonkers! Here is some of the work on her stall, some of it was hers and some belonged to two other ladies. I loved this fox and rabbit.
Then I just meandered around taking pics for you all. There were some nice wall hangings.
Plenty of purchasing opportunities.
Only a few livestock at this show.
I liked these pom poms in a milk churn.
I left with a few goodies, well you have to really don’t you?! I think I did the whole show in an hour, compared to Woolfest in about 6-7 hours, but it is nice to support the smaller shows too, because if we don’t, we run the risk of losing them.
Which and where are your favourite shows?
