Follow the Thread Event-Helmshore Textile Museum!

A hectic and eventful first day at the mill event, with lots of visitors and enthusiasts of all ages having a go on the inkle loom, peg loom, rigid heddle loom and 8 shaft table loom!

The range of crafts on display is impressive at this event-lacemaking, tatting, felt making, embroidery, quilting, braiding to name but a few. Today, the second day, I hope to have a proper look at some of the other stalls and have a go at one or two things.
More photos to follow!
