yesterday the Connacht Textile Crafters had their may meeting - one week early, because the Museum of Country Life invited the group to demonstrate at the Feile na Tuaithe. this is an annual event, where people demonstrate all kinds of crafts, sell their goods, show animals of all kinds etc. it's always well received, esp. as there is no entry fee, which can be quite high, esp. for families with several kids. the one downside of this event is the lack of parking space, but as demonstrators we were allowed to park in the grounds - which was a good thing esp. for those, who brought a spinning wheel, a loom etc.
