Our summer textile plans

It is going to be a season of activity this year in Sellafirth. Sarah Dearlove is back this week for a couple of months to do more on her PhD which is looking at Shetland weaving, and we also have three weavers coming up to stay over the next few months. In fact, July and August are the busiest we have ever been with all accommodation at booked, and all the looms in use at the Centre.

We enjoy people dropping in to visit us, and this summer would be a good one for people to come along and chat to the weavers. Our weavers are international this year; Hungary, Scotland, Ireland and England are all represented.

To visit us, simply drop into Sellafirth (on the way to Gutcher in Yell) or call ahead to make sure we are around. The telephone number is 01957 744 355 and the email is globalyell@btconnect.com.
