The sun shone and the birds sang and the spinning was grand!

So what was that Haven of Spinning-goodness, nonsense about, well here it is!
Another season of spinning begins, the gazebo is up and we're on for more "spinning in public"

Full of all manner of woolly goodness to show the kinds of things we do and a few things to sell too. And the banner goes in a treat, oh I do love it, when it's summer-time again.

The sun shone all day and we had loads of visitors to the tent with almost every man fascinated by the wheels!

Nell thanks Norma for hosting our spinning day, especially for the Tea-service!

And the best part of the day was when people said they had heard about us and were glad to meet us in person!
At the end of the day I was tired, slightly burnt round the edges from the sun but very happy. Actually I felt like this! Cos We've got an Idea Brewin'

This would be informal spinning not demonstration, as Guild main banner and gazebo etc will be at Crag-y-nos. Church picnic 13.00 - 18.00 on Saturday 10th May.

Not sure about car access but parking an issue! If interested then do go and have a lovely day!
