WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT
Wool@J13 https://wool-j13.uk/ echoes many wool shows aimed at a niche, but very well populated segment of the population country wide. North, South, East & West boast such shows, well attended by a wide range of exhibitors dealing in knitting, crocheting, dyeing, fibre in all its forms, felting, needle felting ‘“ you name it, they do it, plus workshops and demos. And visitors with a yen for making with wool in all its forms, flock to these shows. The gap in provision of such a wool show in the middle of the country has been filled by Wool@J13, notably in its successful inaugural show in May 2017 in Staffordshire.
Wool@J13 is quirky, individual and just a little bit different to all the other wool shows around the UK, giving people the opportunity to shop, eat, drink & learn ‘“ and have fun at the same time. For 2022 we are running a mixture of indoors & outdoors down on the Farm at Lower Drayton, Penkridge, Staffs. As always, we aim to create a bit of a festival vibe with the main shopping zone, music, camping & workshops. We also present a Street Food area named The Peckish Pony.
THE PECKISH PONY ‘“ STREET FOOD at Wool@J13
The street food experience from around the world aims to tantalise the taste buds and present a healthy alternative to burger & chips. We are keen to offer vegan & vegetarian alternatives and if you are sweet & lovely with not too much of the sugar stuff, we want to hear from you.
