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:
- The colours of Spin City (www.SpinCityShop.com ) with vibrant and luminous wools and yarns.
- 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.
- Phileas yarns stall was adorned with bold crocheted and knitted fashion, blankets, bags and shawls (https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/PhileasYarns) If only I could crochet!
- 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.
