If you have been following social media recently many posts have been about Shetland Wool Week. On Whalsay we have had a very busy week in the Heritage Centre with lots of planned activities such as talks by Rhea Kay and Andrea Williamson, ShetlandPeerieMakkers teaching their peers to finger knit and dot out patterns, knitting and spinning demonstrations and more.
Our visitor numbers since May this year have been over 1000, one of our best seasons ever! We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has loaned garments for our exhibition and to all who have visited and left us such positive comments. Finally thanks to all the willing volunteers who help run the Heritage Centre and develop so many interesting articles.
