Last week we had the sad task of taking down our exhibition "Whalsay Fair Isle Knitting Through the Decades". In November 2015 we decided to think about a small display of Fair Isle garments, knitted by anyone with Whalsay connections. We thought this would be relatively easy and in February we asked the community for any garments, they would be willing to loan for 6 - 8 months while our display would be up. We decided if we got the garments by March we would put the display up during early April, whilst on holiday from the school. How wrong were we!!
