FLEECE TO GARMENT COMPETITION
This year's theme is puppets, felter's comp wall hanging, and spin the longest thread, all of which will be held on the main street of the festival - this is always a very popular part of the festival!
For the first time this year, there will be a "Witches Brew Mega Weave" which is a group spinning activity.
For this, there will be teams of spinners, felters and weavers who come from all over in order to compete for the perpetual trophies.
