If you’re on the lookout for some real live sock monsters, you’re in for a treat this weekend. Picky Miss monsters can be found at not one, but two (yes two!) craft fairs right here in Sheffield. At Endcliffe Park on Saturday 26th September there is the South Yorkshire Wood Fair , which runs from 11am-5pm and promises “Local produce, beer and venison.
Local woodland history. Woodcrafts, art, fascinating tree facts, an aerial rope walk and POWER TOOLS.” Oh yes. A Grand Day Out indeed, with something for all the family.

Running on both Saturday and Sunday, at St Mary’s church in Walkley, is the Woolfest. Billed as a weekend extravaganza of wool and textile crafting, this fair runs from 10am-4pm on Sat 26th and Sun 27th September. I’m intrigued by the rolling workshops, and also on the list of fabric loveliness are demonstrations of machine embroidery, felting, dyeing, spinning, weaving, knitting and crochet techniques. Wow! Are you one of those people who just has to touch soft snuggly looking jumpers in the shops, or a random collector of fabrics? Looks like this is for you 🙂 Picky Miss will be present at this fair courtesy of that wonderful Craft Candy. See you there!
