We travelled up the A1, destination St.Abbs, which is just inside the Scottish borders near Eyemouth. Woolfish were having a St Abbs Wool Festival! How could we resist? The sun shone for us, the roads were pretty clear and the journey was definately worth it. What do you think?
The Wool Festival was held in the Church Hall, which was decorated with colourful bunting on the outside and full of yarnie goodies on the inside.
We had a great time browsing amongst the fabulous selection of yarns and accessories. Sarah has obviously inherited my talent for spotting yarn with cashmere content at 40 paces! We also enjoyed some home baked goodies including cream cakes and scones. Perfect!
Sarah, enjoying the sun and fine views. After lunch, we headed off up the road to have a look in the actual Woolfish shop. Have you been? It's an Aladdin's Cave full to the brim with yarns, buttons, patterns and garments.
A fine day out!
