First of all, Wednesday the 9th March we are at the Borders Tourism Fair at Springwood Hall, Kelso to promote the St Abbs Wool Festival. Do come along to see what’s happening at the festival - we have samples of all the different things on offer at the festival on the 2nd April - and more generally in the Scottish and Northumberland Borders - lots of ideas for days or weekends out for the rest of the year.
Dornoch Fibre Fest - yes all that way! When we go on the road we like to go to far flung places, so it’s off to Dornoch on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th March. The event is held in two venues in the town so plenty of opportunity to do a bit of sightseeing whilst going between the two halls!
Then we have a bit of rest (no point in rushing into things!) before the St Abbs Market kicks off again - every Friday in the Ebba Centre at St Abbs.
I’ll be there for the opening event on Good Friday the 25th March, then after that the first Friday of each month until December. So if you are planning a trip to the coast and want to stock up on woolly supplies, make sure to come on the first Friday of the month!
Our next event will be our very own St Abbs Wool Festival on Saturday 2nd April between 10am and 4pm in the Ebba Centre and the Visitor Centre. We’ve got lots of regulars and some new faces, all full of enthusiasm to promote everything woolly, so come and see what’s on offer and try your hand at some new crafts - the Haddington Spinners will be coming along with all manner of wheels, looms and what not for you to have a go at.
