There will also be stalls displaying the best in lace products, patchwork and quilting, knitting for beginners, the Alpaca knitwear and a selection of shawls and blankets.
It is also a chance for people to bring their unwanted knitting and crochet patterns, odd balls of wool, which will all be sold for' Barnard's Charity' . www.barnardos.org.uk
