Spring Open Day - 30th March 2019 - 10am til 4pm

With Special Guests - Indigodragofly

Shake off those winter blues. The clocks have gone forward and the Daffodils will be in full bloom. It must be time for us to fling open our doors for our Spring Open Day

Kim McBrien - Indigodragonfly

Kim McBrien is a lifelong textile maven… has tried it all. Start with liberal doses of dyeing, knitting, spinning and designing. Toss in some Arts Management teaching and Social Media guru-ing. Finish off with some yarn-y bon-vivanting. Oh yeah, there’s that World Domination thing…

Indigodragonfly offer their individual and unique takes on traditional yarn dyeing, refusing to be a cog in the cookie-cutter yarn industry. They specialize in luxury yarns with an emphasis on finding the best yarns as well as developing custom yarns to bring you products no-one else has.

They are also well-known for their humour – Why call that red skein Dye Lot #346 when you can call it "Malcom Tucker is Plotting Revenge!"


A Great Relaxed Day

Our open days have grown since we opened up in Wantage 7 years ago. Maybe you will want to smoosh the oodles of Yarn, take a cup of tea in The Cafe or cuddle up on the comfy sofas in The Cwtch.

If you have not been to one of our open days before they are very relaxed, friendly and informal events. It's a great place to meet friends and make new ones. We are now based in the beautiful rural setting of The Firs Farm, Leckhamstead, in the Royal County of Berkshire, just a stones throw from where the Great British Bake Off is held.
