Organisers of Hitchin yarn and wool fair hail event as huge success


The Festiwool craft fair for lovers of textile art, sewing, knitting and crochet at North Herts College’s Cambridge Road campus on Saturday attracted hundreds of people.

One of the organisers, Phillipa Gregory, said: “I think it was a very successful event again.

“Many stallholders from the town were also very happy to be there including Hitchin fashion shops Rosita Lollipop, What Sarah Did and Rubarb who all had their garments worn on the day.

“There’s been great feedback from the ‘wool community’ both on the day and on social media, which is kind.
