Once upon a time...

... it was suggested to our local borough council that hosting a festival to celebrate all things yarn would be a really great idea.

Spinning Yarns; a festival of colour, creativity and craft comes to Antrim Castle Gardens & Clotworthy House this weekend. Open on both Saturday 1st & Sunday 2nd September 10am - 6pm there will be fun for all the family.

But most importantly 'The Estate' will be on public display for the first time.  The Estate has been our largest crochet project to date, both in timeline and finished size, measuring just over 3m by 2m (9feet by 6feet) and nearly eight months in the making, we have created a 2 dimensional map of the Antrim & Newtownabbey Borough area featuring railways, rivers and roads and a range of historical, modern and mythical locations.

Come along and see how any you can recognise.
