Second May knitting retreat - Day 1 at Fil en Fete

The first full day of the retreat just happened to be the weekend of Fil en Fete in St Jean d'Angely. This great exhibition is full of inspiration with colourful displays of patchwork, quilting and textile art and stalls selling fabric, trimmings and yarn.
