FIBRE EAST 2016


Once again the Fibre East organisers pulled out all the stops to put on a fantastic festival of all things yarny. It's fast becoming a most important date in my diary. The venue is perfect, with plenty of parking, spacious and varied vendor spaces, outdoor sunshine spaces, excellent and well organised catering facilities and YARN!!! Yarn and everything one might ever need, in order to magic the yarn into wonderful and magnificent creations! Add all of this to friendly exhibitors and vendors and catching up with friends and you have the perfect mix for a very successful fibre festival. 


I had a ball and thoroughly enjoyed my Saturday visit; meeting up with my great pal Josiekitten and managing to make a few very carefully selected purchases!


There is always so much colour and vibrancy to feast the eyes upon, so many ideas triggered and so much talent on display.


Thanks to everyone involved, it was another great Fibre East! Looking forward to next year!
You'll have to wait to see my purchases, as we came up to Yorkshire the day after the event and I've yet to photograph them, swatch this space.

AWWWWWW!!! Yarn heaven! Scrolling down through your photos, I kept thinking, "This is the best", "No, this is the best!" And I love your your phrase "very carefully chosen" as I will look forward to seeing what you will be making from what you bought there.
