EMBROIDERY AT KENDAL WOOL GATHERING

Kendal Wool Gathering is a wonderful opportunity for the whole family to discover and learn about our town’s wool heritage – while also browsing stalls, meeting sheep and alpacas, and trying some new crafts!

The gathering comes alive with the Wool Market (featuring over 60 stalls from the UK and Europe), Wool School (where taster sessions in spinning and knitting draw the crowds), professional demonstrations and children’s workshops.

Visit the Kendal Wool Gathering website for full details.
