Summer Wool Festival

Following the success of our first Summer Wool Festival last year with over 2,500 visitors, we're back for a second year on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th July 2023 at Redborne School in Ampthill near Bedford (MK45 2NU) in partnership with Revolution Radio


The Summer Wool Festival is the perfect event for all lovers of knitting, crochet, feltmaking, weaving, spinning, fibre arts, and all things woolly!

We have over 100 amazing exhibitors, who'll be selling a fantastic range of products for knitting, crochet, felting, weaving, spinning, and dyeing, including yarns, patterns, kits, equipment, tools and accessories.

We also have a great range of workshops, free demos, a "street food" area, and loads of free parking.

As last year, we are supporting Bedford Daycare Hospice with a major collection selling second hand wool/knitting magazines which raised so much money last year.

You can find loads of information about the event on our website:, and we are on Facebook and Instagram too @summerwoolfestival.
