Sheep's Head Yarn Festival 2017
Saturday 20th May 2017 | Sunday 21st May 2017
After many years of living in West Cork and hearing stories of 'Knit & Stitch' Shows across Ireland & the UK a small team of yarn crafters from the Sheep's Head Producers Market got together to see what we could organise for the people of West Cork. After coming up with 7 or 8 workshop possibilities work got started on how, where & when. It was decided to help local businesses extend the summer season we would run the festival on the 3rd weekend in May. Workshops were to be placed in Cafe's, Pubs & B&B's along the Sheep's Head Peninsula from Durrus to Letterwest encouraging visitors to see as much of the beautiful scenery as possible while travelling to their next workshop. This proved a great success for all involved and showed that anything is possible when you have the support of the community, no matter how small we may be.
