Whalsay Fair Isle Knitting through the ages
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!! So many garments were donated, it became the seasonal exhibition for the summer and was a great success.
We still have some of the beautiful garments, information and patterns that were donated.
