After getting the tickets yesterday (see here) it got me thinking about the last show we went to – Fibrefest.

We turned it into a camping holiday, and stayed at Salcombe Regis campsite which is just up the road from Sidmouth – a great site other than the sloping pitch! We did camping in style by taking a futon matress and some bench cushions and duvets. It was very snuggly once we’d filled our hot water bottles (with covers knitted by my Mum!) and eaten our cream teas.

Sleeping compartment - very comfy!

Unfortunately we missed the local observatory’s event that was held on the day we arrived, and a local music festival…despite that we had a really lovely holiday going to some beautiful places, including one of my favourite places Lyme Regis.

Our trip to Lyme Regis

Fibrefest was a wonderful day full of many tempting things and lovely knowledgeable people. The setting was gorgeous too.  It was held here: http://www.coldharbourmill.org.uk/ I don’t think the caterers were expecting so many visitors as they sold out of veggie and most meat food sharpish! Luckily we managed to get the last 2 veggie burgers to fuel more shopping 🙂

End of the day at Coldharbour Mill...we always seem to be among the last to leave these events!

Very appropriately it is an operational yarn spinning mill. They have a museum too but we were too busy in the tents and paddock to look!
