Newsletter Spring 2020


The beginning of show season is almost upon us…. we are getting very excited now and are ready to be back on the road.

We can’t wait to see you all in 2020!

Our first show of the season is ‘Spring into Wool’ at Leeds Grammar School – 18th & 19th April.  Followed quickly by ‘Wonderwool Wales’ – in Builth Wells at the Royal Welsh Showground 25th & 26th April.

(If you want us to bring any specific items to any of the shows don’t forget to let us know at least 3 days before the show so we can pop it in the van).

At present we have 12 shows booked in for 2020 so keep an eye on our Facebook, Twitter and Ravelry pages to see which other events we will be attending.

2020 is already proving to be a great one for The Threshing Barn; with the exciting news that we are now distributors for the Dreaming Robots: Electric Eel Wheel (EEW) Nano, miniature electric spinning wheels. Woo hoo! The Deluxe set includes 7 bobbins, a US to UK adapter and a USB cable, choose from the purple or charcoal models. These beauties are already on sale from our original price of £135 and are now £101.25 that’s a whopping 25% discount.

No more struggling to take your spinning out and about! You will have so much fun taking your wheel on holiday, in the car (please only spin if safe to do so – you’ll need a chauffeur!), in the Pub, waiting for appointments etc. In fact, please post to us on our social media sites where you are spinning. To support the Nano community already here in the UK we will be stocking spares, and bigger replacement motors are already winging their way from the USA.
