Well, we’ve had a chance to recover from what was our biggest Shetland Wool Week yet! It was an amazing festival – packed with hundreds of classes, talks and tours, all celebrating Shetland’s fantastic textile heritage and crofting community.
Now in its seventh year, our participant numbers have doubled – with almost 600 attending. As always, we are humbled by how far people will travel to join us. This year we welcomed visitors from all corners of the world from Norwich to New Zealand to Denmark and California.
We’ll be circulating a round up shortly with highlights and photos of the event. In the meantime, we would appreciate it if you could take a few minutes to complete our short survey to help us with our planning for 2017. As ever, we are keen to make improvements and ensure that the event stays fresh and relevant, so your feedback is important to us. As a thank you, you’ll be entered into a free prize draw where you will have the chance to win an annual subscription to our 60North publication. The prize draw will close on 7th November 2016.
2017 dates announced
Looking ahead to next year we are pleased to announce that Shetland Wool Week 2017 will take place from the 23rd September until 1st October 2017. Planning is now underway and we can promise you that 2017 is set to be another unforgettable year!
We hope you enjoyed SWW 2016 and thank you for your continued support.
