What we’re up to June – August 2016
Summer is finally here, weather is warming up a little and the alpacas are fluffier than ever! It’s nearly time for them to have their annual haircut and we’re planning what to do with their fleeces!
Even though it’s summer, it doesn’t mean we’re taking it easy! We have lots of shows, workshops and other happenings coming up over the next few months.
1. Ickworth Wool Festival – 4th and 5th June
For the first time we will be attending the Ickworth Wool Festival. Held in beautiful surroundings, we are pretty sure we will feel right at home! We’ll be bringing our yarn and patterns along and hope to meet lots of lovely new knitters!
2. Town & Country Show – 11th and 12th June
This will be our 3rd year at the Cambridge Town & Country Show; held on Parker’s Piece it’s a festival of food, crafts and entertainment. We’ll be selling many of our samples here as well as our gorgeous knitting kits.
3. Woolfest – 24th and 25th June
Woolfest is held in stunning Cockermoouth and for the second time, we will be staying in the same stunning cottage in Allonby by the sea. Being by the seaside is good for the soul and makes this show one of our absolute favourites! We love the selection of stalls at this show and are looking forward to catching up with our friends in Cumbria!
4. Knitting Workshops – 16th July
Our popular workshops are filling up early this year and our July edition has been fully booked for a few months already. But worry not, we have released dates up until December and there are still spaces left! You can reserve your space by clicking on this link!
5. Knitting Workshop – 27th August
Here is your chance to meet Dusty and our other wonderful alpacas! We are not quite sure just how many alpacas we will have at this point, but we can promise there will be a few alpaca babies running around! They are so cute bouncing across the green fields and we are confident you will fall in love with them just like us!
As you may be able to tell, we have a busy time ahead! We are really looking forward to seeing you at one of these events or workshops!
Tracy, Kari-Helene and the alpacas xxx
