Fair Isle made in Fair Isle - Crafts & Knitwear at the Hall for the first Cruise Ship

Mati & David King - Fair Isle Knitwear display.
 We had first cruise ship sale at the Fair Isle Hall, here are some photos... The ship had only 27 visitors & I'm pretty sure the isle had more than that scurrying around to accommodating their brief visit, but with so much great knitting an crafts on display the luck few cherry picked some of the best items made over the winter months. Well done everyone! We are hoping for 11 more cruise ships over the next few months if they all make it a shore in good weather with maximum capacity we might see about 1000 more folks.

  1. Fantastic display. So proud of you all.

  2. Worth going to Fair Isle just to shop!

  3. I'm drooling. I'm having such a feeling of lust for the patterns, yarn and needles at this point.

    Love your display, the photos/postcards are awesome it goes without saying but I really like your limpet shells as well.
