We want to start by saying a massive woolly thank you to all of you who popped by our Mill Open Weekend a couple of weeks ago. It was such a joyous event with much laughter and nattering, ’tis always a real treat to open our doors and welcome you all inside our Mill! Tea and cake were scoffed, Tops and Yarns were fondled, Machines were admired and mountains of limited edition goodies were cooed over and taken home as souvenirs… We hope that all of you who were able to attend had as much fun as we did.
And, all us Mill folk had such a fab time that we have decided to do it all again next year … so, for your diaries in case you fancy another visit, or want to experience our woolly home for the very first time: The next Mill Open Weekend dates are Sat 6th & Sun 7th June 2020
Firstly, thank you to everyone who came to our 2018 Mill Open Weekend and for making it such a success. We had a ball over the weekend, and it was fabulous to spend the days leading up to it polishing and sprucing, so each machine could be as proud as punch to show itself off to all the interested visitors.
You came from far and wide – from just down the road, from further up the road and even from Italy! Over the course of the weekend we gave 18 mill tours (9 a day) to 350 people, with over 1000 people visiting total! And we all ate about a million local homemade cakes accompanied by made many cups of tea.
Last year for our Open Weekend we invited you to bring your crafted goodies made from something we produce which entered you into a competition to win a Mill Membership.
This year, we are once again inviting you to bring along something crafted with our fluff or yarn. But this time you will be entered into a raffle draw to win one of a few goody bags! Entry is FREE, you just have to register your crafted wares in exchange for a raffle ticket.
We love to see what you have all made – it is always a treat!
So we will be looking forward to seeing you (and your items) and wish you luck in the raffle!
Here are some photos of what the lovely people entered last year…
