July is a very busy month for us, with lots of markets and summer shows, so here goes:
(As usual, click on the coloured text for links to websites...)
Tuesday 1st July - a new venue for the ST Abbs Market traders is the Glendale Hall in Wooler, there will be 10 of the regular traders coming along between 10am and 4pm to see what we have on offer. I have been replenishing my empty boxes of buttons, beads, wool and patterns so my stall will once again be stacked full of woolly loveliness to squish, squash and take home!
Friday 4th July between 10am and 4pm is the usual St Abbs Market at the Ebba Centre in St Abbs village.
Saturday 5th July between 9am and 4pm I'll be at the Buttermarket in Berwick upon Tweed - I've got a wonderful new line in spinning and felting fibres (see previous post for photos), so if that's what you after, come along and see me.
Wednesday 9th July between 9am and 4pm at the Buttermarket in Berwick upon Tweed - we have decided to come out to play during the week for the whole of July and August as we know there will be lots of tourists and holiday makers around, so we want to show that Berwick is a great place to be with lots to see and do.
Friday 11th July again at St Abbs between 10am and 4pm
Sunday 13th July sees us at a new event in Greenhead - the monthly Hadrian's Wall farmers market (with tasty local produce....) joins forces with the Penine Wool Group to host "Wool on the Wall" - celebrating British woolcraft and produce. The event takes place between 10am and 4pm at the Greenhead Hotel.
Wednesday 16th July - Berwick upon Tweed Buttermarket between 9am and 4pm
Friday 18th July - St Abbs market in St Abbs Village between 10am and 4pm
Saturday 19th July - Berwick upon Tweed Buttermarket between 9am and 4pm
Sunday 20th July - another new venue for Skybluepink-designs is the Glendale Festival in Wooler, Northumberland - betweeen 10am and 4pm in the Glendale Hall. Lots of fibre artists and local producer/makers showing their craftsmanship with sales and demonstrations. There is also lots of other stuff going on around Wooler, so it makes for a great day out in the beautiful Cheviot Hills.
Wednesday 23rd July - at Berwick upon Tweed Buttermarket between 9am and 4pm
Friday and Saturday, 25th & 26th July - we are back at the Border Union Agricultural Show in Kelso. Following the success of the Wool Marquee at last year's show, we have been invited back to showcase the many and varied fabulous things that you can do with wool. There will be sales, demonstrations and exhibitions of all things woolly, so do come along and join what is one of the biggest agricultural shows in the country.
Final date for July is Wednesday 30th at Berwick upon Tweed Buttermarket between 9am and 4pm, then I'll put my feet up for a day or so before August starts!
