OK, so I’m nearly there, only a few bits left to make and label (batts mostly). I thought it might be quite nice to go through what I have ready for you.

  • Silk Scarves for Nuno felting.
  • Spinning equipment and sundries from bobbins, lazy kates to threading hooks.
  • Unicorn Power Scour for those raw fleeces you might buy at the show.
  • Texture boxes… lots of them!

So there is certainly lots and lots to see and buy on my 4x3m stall…. Stand U5 at the back near the dining area. I would love to see you and show you the new stuff and talk through what might be good for your next product.

Dreaming in Fibre - Episode 11 Wonderwool Wales
This is a monthly podcast by Sara’s Texture Crafts.
Thank you to new and existing viewers, I hope you enjoy the show!

In this episode I discuss;Wonderwool Wales April 28th 2012 - www.wonderwoolwales.co.uk


This is a wonderful annual fleece, fibre and yarn event held at the Royal Welsh Showground in Bulith Wells, Powys. There are over 170 stall holders showing their beautiful products under cover.  I normally have a stall here, but due to health reasons decided against it this year… hopefully I shall be back to my regular spot next time! Having said that I couldn’t stay away and stole the opportunity to go and experience the show as a buyer for the first time.

The great thing about this show is that there is plenty of room to wander between stalls, which is perfect as there is so much to see. It also means that you don’t miss anything! I very much enjoyed my day and wanted to share it with you… So I’ve filmed a little walk-about and talked you through some of my purchases!

Overall I felt that there was lots of inspiration, from finished clothing, to weaving kits and from sheep to yarn (fibre in various stages of production). There were many stall holders I recognise from year on year, but also some fresh faces too, which is always a good thing… keeps us regulars on our toes!

The show ground is well serviced locally, so it is a show worth travelling to and I definitely recommend it.

Thank you to Chrissie (organiser of Wonderwool) for allowing me to film and to Darrin who acted the Robin, to my Batman whilst I wandered around the show full of cold!

I woke up this morning to several things;

An Etsy treasury feature… Thank you Rhoda L!

My shopping bags for my shopping trip to Wonderwool… Couldn’t stay away even though I’m not showing this year!

And a cold… From allergies to reskeining fluff and a chill from the weather :( I’m determined it won’t stop me though, so I’m off to wrap up warm and dose myself up so I can feel better for Wonderwool.

Enjoy your day, wrap up warm and I’ll be back tomorrow with the shop update at www.sarastexturecrafts.com
