The Midlands most vibrant wool & yarn festival will be back on 18 & 19 May 2019! Building on the success of the past two years, as well as the ‘shop till you drop’ marquee - packed with artisan wool and yarn exhibitors - there is a textile exhibition, larger-than-life rope making and a number of great workshops where visitors can hone their skills. Plus, knitting knowhow from The Sockmatician; who will also be on hand signing & selling his book “Guys Knit”. Men’s knitting will be something of a theme for the show, tying in nicely with this year’s nominated charity Baggy Trousers UK.
New additions include a ‘have a go at’ challenge area, which will present the chance to “put me together again” on the weaving front, and there will also be the opportunity to adopt a (woolly) farm animal courtesy of the regional WI. The popular street food fayre will also be back, alongside the WI Tearoom, and visitors will be entertained musically throughout the weekend by ukulele-playing ex-punk rockers Not Quite Dead Yet.
The event will take place just 1 mile from J13 of the M6 – making it ideally placed for visitors travelling from far and wide. For those visiting as a family, Lower Drayton Farm’s friendly fun farm attraction can be accessed by ticketholders throughout the weekend; allowing younger visitors to meet the animals and let off steam on the adventure playground.
