Spring into Wool 2016
Saturday 8th April 2017
Leeds Grammer School
There was a fabulous selection of goodies in an equally fabulous venue!
As well as loads of wonderful stands selling a wide range of products there were a great range of workshops, free demonstrations, displays and a "knit and natter" area - all aimed at helping people to share their skills and passion for wool crafts. And it's not all about knitting! ... there's also spinning and dyeing and weaving and crocheting and dry felting and wet felting ... and probably a few more crafts we can't think of right now!
