Next weekend is a very special one for us in Yell. It is the inaugural weekend of a new festival celebrating the creativity of the island - FestiYell.
Organised by the communities across the island and co-ordinated by Kellie and Selina through the Unst Partnership (thank you both!) the weekend has an amazing variety of events. We have concerts, open studios, workshops, games.... Shona and I will be making bacon rolls, chatting about some artists who use textiles in their work with books and a video for those who want some Sunday morning company, and Shona will be doing a short demo of some of her fibrous techniques. O yes! Much fun is to be had next weekend. Check out the Facebook page and come along to FestiYell!
