But the little emerald has only one fiber and craft show a year! Isn't it unbelievable? Think about the amount of Aran sweater this island have produced.
After the seminar, did I decide to have lunch? No. I completely forgot about it and headed straight to the market.
First up, discontinued yarn half price sale from the Black Sheep Company
The owner of the stall didn't even mind to be on the photo, see how happy he is?
Then you have stall for yarn storage for those who already have way too much yarn.
You also have many other interesting crafts in the show, like hat making.
There were workshops in many different craft. Here, they are doing needle felting with machines. I have also seen wet felting, silk felting, papercraft, hat making, etc. I will probably join some of those workshops next year, I just didn't even know they have some.
From now on, if there is anymore people arguing about knitting and crocheting being craft or art, they should come look at these exhibition. There is really not much difference between craft and art nor there is any point of arguing about it. Why don't we argue how wrong it is for those people who spend their time watching reality show?
So in the canteen area, there is a Knit and Relax corner for people to knit tiny scarf for Simon Communities of Ireland.
Yes, there was a Sister in the show, yes.
After lunch, I went upstair to see the demonstration of different craft associations and guilds.
Isn't it a lovely way to spend an afternoon?
