What a day!

Thank you to everyone who turned up and helped create the buzz at the very first Cheshire Fibre Festival at Marthall Village Hall. I’m afraid I had no time to take photos but I have some friends who did!  Here’s the venue:

We had a fab mix of exhibitors displaying and selling their wares, running workshops and  demonstrating their many talents; Yarns from the Plain, Jenny Barnett needlefelting, Eco-Stitch, Crafts from the Dungeon and me!

We were supported by some wonderful volunteers who helped with everything, including ‘the kitchen’ by serving up tea/coffee/cakes with a smile (and supplying cakes), right down to the tidying up at the end of the day.

We had donations of raffle prizes from some lovely supportive yarny organisations – Mollie Makes, LoveKnitting/LoveCrochet, Crochet Now magazine, Stylecraft and exhibitors.

I’m so pleased to say ‘the kitchen’ raised over £177 for Bloodwise! Actually, I’m not surprised because the cakes were amazing 🙂

I think it’s safe to say everyone enjoyed the day. It had a friendly vibe and I saw so many smiles.

So will we do it next year? You’ll have to watch this space 😉

Happy knitting and crocheting xxx

Thank you to Jenny, Vicky and Louise for allowing me to use their photos.
