Yarndale 2018

A treat awaited us at the Skipton Auction Mart, everything colourful, textured and woolly.

Displays included hand dyed fibres, hand spun yarns and woven wonders.
Highlights for me included:

  • Experience Ukraine with their traditional handmade wool, embroidery and clothes from the heart of the Carpathian Mountain region (www.experienceukraine.co.uk) I am of course very tempted to visit the Ukraine with Nataliya on one of her tours.

  • Finally I was amazed at the stunning collection of knitted and crocheted butterflies made from visitors to support a Yorkshire charity which runs creative arts sessions for people living with dementia.

If you like beautiful wools and felts and a great day out put Yarndale 2019 on your calendar.
