Hoping to go on the Sunday.  Never been before but I've been given a spinning wheel and a loom and I've recently tried my hand at felting so thought it might be interesting.

MrsJ,
You sound just like me.

I am hoping to go on the Sunday and I have never been before.  I too have a spinning wheel, tried to teach myself a few years back but not successfully so want to try again and I discovered felting just before chistmas.

Might see you there

Sally

It's a festival of Welsh Wool and all that goes with it.  Have a look at the website

We'll be in Builth for the Badger Faced Sheep Society AGM which I am presuming is in the same location - so might persuade hubby to have a look round the stalls. We've got a friend running a stall down there so planning to pop in on her.

Shame it's the weekend before payday (or lucky depending on how you look at it!)

It looks like an awful weekend weather wise but I think there is quite a lot of cover there so hopefully we will be ok

Desparately jealous! .  Would love to go but Sat Sun is only time with OH and v precious - dont think he would like to come  ;D and cant tear myself away.....  Having Beulah lambs sheared this friday and I know their fleece is not supposed to be all that but it looks Fabulous!  How do I go about getting it properly graded (micron etc) .  So much to learn and wonderwool could have really helped... boo
