Fantastic upcoming festivals!

2016 is off to such an exciting start as I prepare for the many wonderful festivals that are coming up!  The studio is a hive of activity with tops, scarves, wraps, cushion covers, headbands, necklaces and many more one-of-a-kind items coming off the looms. I will be doing SAORI weaving demonstrations, have a stock of gorgeous yarns and pre-wound warps – including silks, cashmere, extra fine cottons, luxurious llama fibre and will have lots of festival workshop specials! So make sure you stop on by and say Hi!
