Our fortnightly Spinning Nights have been going down a treat, and the next one takes place this Wednesday, 20th July. Feel free to bring along your wheel or spindle, or if you prefer, your knitting. This one isn’t a workshop or class, it’s simply a chance to sit and spin or knit in company, enjoy a cup of tea and conversation, and maybe even pick up or pass on some tips.
Built in 1780, this is the only böd in Shetland which has been renovated to its historical state.

As the dark nights drew in towards the end of last year, we decided to run a Neckwear Competition, to culminate in a display at Da Bȏd o’ Gremista during the Summer 2016 season.
