Amberley and yarn

A while ago I won an annual pass to Amberley Museum and last weekend I took the opportunity to visit whilst their Traditional Crafts event was taking place.

It was lovely to wonder around the museum and see the exhibits – although admitting I had used curlers like the ones on display and having to show DD how to use a dial telephone didn’t make me feel any younger…

I knew that South Downs Yarn had a stand at the show and, just as I was about to give up hunting for her and head home, I spotted a sign pointing up a track. Sure enough, there she was, tucked away in the Friends’ Centre with a local spinning guild.  After a while deliberating about colours, a couple of skeins agreed to come home with me – I think I will try and spin some Southdown fibre to use alongside it in a colourwork project of some sort.
