Shetland Wool Week 2014

This year the Wool Week celebrations are bigger and better than ever! Ten days of all things woolly including tours, visits, workshops and talks.

Although we shall be away at the Knitting and Stitching Show in Ally Pally in London over Wool Week (look for us on Stand TGD1), the studio in Yell will be open courtesy of Angharad McLaren and Shielagh Tacey who are also running a "Weave Shetland Tweed" workshop over the week. Their workshop will use the beautiful and sometimes quite zany colours and patterns in the Archive (see the cloth on the left as an example of the latter)  as a starting point for weaving. Sounds like a lot of fun! If you are coming up to the Wool Week book your places early for all the workshops because they are filling up fast.
