I had an absolutely brilliant time in Wales this weekend...with my buddy Nicsknots
We travelled on Friday over to the venue, got there in about 3 or so hours from Leicester...and with me navigating, that was pretty good going ;)
It was a lot bigger than I was expecting, far bigger than Woolfest which meant there was loads of room to move about, and it was really light and airy.
I went as a visitor/occasional helper, so I got plenty of time to meet lots of lovely peeps and take lots of photos...
This tall fella is James...who, I think, took at least a 1/3 of all spinning fibres home with him ;)
This is Helen and Nik...friends from Cardiff I have met through Ravelry. They both make sock creatures, of which I have quite a few, and it was so ace to finally meet and spend a bit of time with them :)
I also spent quite a bit of time down in the Interactive area, a place set up for peeps to go and sit andknit, spin or just Chat. You could also have a go on various wheels there, and maybe do a bit of felting or make drum carded batts, with the lovely Jill aka Wrigglefingers. It was set up by the lovely AmberMoggie (pictured here with her lovely husband Mr Mog ) and WyeSue , here demonstrating how to make felted beads :) All the usual suspects were exhibiting there, my lovely friend Jen who had by the time I took this photo, stopped bouncing, maybe I should call her Tigger ;) And here's the lovely Queenie again, with Debbie and Debbie :)
This was Daniela's stand....it was quite breathtaking...full of gorgeous fibres and lovely handspun yarns.
I am really hoping to have my own stand there next year, but, we will have to wait and see!!
