HELLO SUMMER

Good Afternoon lovely people, another double page spread to share today, this one is said 15 year old at Trefriw Woollen Mill.  We did the self guided tour backwards (don't ask), and ended up in the Weaver's Cottage, the lady in there was sat spinning on a wheel and there was so much to look at.  She encouraged us to have a go at each of the weaving looms, from the basic peg loom all the way up to a full blown weaving loom with moving heddles, foot peddles etc! 


We were in the cottage ages and thoroughly enjoyed chatting to the lady who had so much information about spinning and weaving that she was happy to chat to us about. 

Needless to say by the time we left said 15 year old really really wanted a loom - preferably the giant room sized one; what we ended up with was a peg loom but enjoyable nonetheless.
