Meet the exhibitors
Find out more about some of this year’s fantastic exhibitors, and what’s going on at the show.
Woolly Chic sells a beautiful range of 100% British wool and unique Crochet & Knitting Kits.
Woolly Chic yarn is produced from the fleece of sheep farmed on our family farm in Pembrokeshire Wales. The yarn is spun and dyed in Britain.
Helen has designed a range of chic and unique kits, which include everything you need to make something really special. The kits are quick and easy to make and are a great introduction to the addictive crafts of crochet and knitting. They make perfect gifts for creative friends.
“It is lovely to create crochet and knitting patterns using yarn that came from sheep that graze on my family’s farm,” enthuses Helen from Woolly Chic.
Run by Debbie Tomkies, this workshop will run on Saturday at 1.30pm.
Make a mini-bunting embellished with beads. Learn how to add beads to your knitting, plan a project and follow a simple chart.
The cost of the workshop is £15.00, which includes your entry ticket to Bakewell Wool Gathering. You can book online.
I am forty-something years old, and very blessed to be a stay at home mum to two beautiful and inspiring sons, and significant other to my very own RockStar :D.
I’ve been hand-dyeing yarn since 2006, firstly in my kitchen, then, as Babylonglegs grew up a bit, I moved into a purpose built studio in 2010… right outside my back door, allowing me to still work in my pyjamas, of course!
I *love* colour, the brighter and more iridescent the better. All the colours I play with shout louder than me, and this makes me very happy :).
I stock a wide range of base yarns, from merino, to silk mixes and pure silk, in a variety of weights.
I have also test knitted all the yarns in my inventory, because I want my customers to have a pleasurable experience, and be pleased with their choices. I am very particular about my yarns, how they handle and then wear when they have become a garment… so please don’t hesitate to ask me anything!
I have an Internet shop at www.babylonglegs.co.uk, a Facebook page, my own group on Ravelry and I have a blog which I have kept since 2005.
I have been to this show as a visitor, and was so impressed with how well organised and friendly it is, I decided to have a stand myself this year.
I’m really looking forward to meeting you at Bakewell 2014!
