The second annual Wool @ J13 wool and yarn festival at Lower Drayton Farm in May 2018 has now opened up their spots for exhibitors.
Taking place just 1 mile from J13 of the M6 in Staffordshire, the highly successful inaugural event in May this year attracted some 1,400 visitors and the organisers are aiming to double that figure in 2018.
Set to take place on 12th & 13th May in the same working farm setting, the 2018 event has already seen most of the 40 exhibitors who attended this year already signed up
Staffordshire based wool artist Ingrid Wagner, who organises the event alongside Lower Drayton Farm’s Val James, says: “We couldn’t be happier with the visitor and exhibitor feedback from our first event – it shows that our extensive market research and hard work promoting the event paid off. That’s not to say we haven’t identified areas for improvement, and we’re determined that 2018 is going to be even bigger and better.
“What we’re most pleased about is that pretty much all of the exhibitors who attended the 2017 event have signed up to join us in 2018 and our first show’s success has brought in a lot of additional enquiries. Also, if you’re a new business living within a 50 mile radius of the show, you can benefit from our support packages ranging from stand offers to regular blog features on our website. We’d love to hear from all of these businesses who have never exhibited with us before. ”
Like the 2017 event, Wool @ J13 2018 will offer, alongside a shopping marquee with exhibitors travelling from as far afield as Glasgow and Jersey, workshops covering a host of skills and topics; a fleece sale; live music, a licensed bar and street food. A host of new attractions are also in the pipeline to give visitors even more to enjoy.
