To give you a little taster of this year’s show, we have a song for you to join in with! To the tune of ‘English Country Garden’, are you ready? All together now, after four – 1, 2, 3, 4 ……

What did you see when you came to Fibre-East

For a weekend’s treat of fibre fun?

We’ll tell you some of the wondrous woolly feast,

Those we miss you’ll surely pardon.

Weaving looms, drop spindles,

Crochet hooks and needles,

Alpaca, silk, wool and cotton yarn,

Silver shawl pins, wool duvets and felting kits galore

At a weekend’s treat of fibre fun!

For a weekend’s treat of fibre fun?

We’ll tell you some of the wondrous woolly feast,

Those we miss you’ll surely pardon.

Tiny felted animals,

Rainbow skeins of sock yarn,

Yarn bowls and buttons and braids of fluff,

Fudge and toffee galore, taxidermy heads and more

At a weekend’s treat of fibre fun!

Brightly coloured baskets,

Competition entries,

Tea cosies, dresses and brooches too,

Lots of sheep, shorn or woolly, traditional crafts on show

Hope you’re still singing! Last verse coming up!

What did you see when you came to Fibre-East

For a weekend’s treat of fibre fun?

We’ll tell you some of the wondrous woolly feast,

Those we miss you’ll surely pardon.

Quirky driftwood sculptures,

Guilds folk doing demos,

Stitch markers, carders and project bags,

Smiling faces of shoppers with bulging shopping bags

At a weekend’s treat of fibre fun!
