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.
As the sun begins to peer between the clouds and the sea tries to warm up a little here in Devon, the Mill is a thriving hub of activity. We’ve begun to prepare for our annual Mill Open Weekend on the Sat 19th & Sun 20th May. Now in its 5th year, we look forward to a weekend of opening up the Mill, inviting you all in to have a peak of our wonderful woolly world and a slice of home-made cake.
But this year we also have a special guest joining us…
Rachel Atkinson of Daughter of a Shepherd will be with us at the Mill all weekend. She will be bringing her gorgeous yarns back to the place where they were spun and sharing her inspiring new book.
