What’s on in Dornoch: March 2019

What’s On This Month?

After an unseasonably mild February we are looking forward to more sunshine and Spring weather in March. The snow drops are in full bloom and the daffodils are nearly there- Roll on Spring!

Our five-star museum – Historylinks – opens daily 10-4 for the season from April 1 until October 31.

This month sees one of the Dornoch calender’s highlights- FibreFest 8-10 March – when we welcome all those interested in wool, fabric and craft work. The opening talk on Friday 8th is “Fair Isle Knitting then and now” by Janette Budge a native Shetlander who will talk about how the designs have changed through the decades and how her family knitting heritage fits into the picture. The main events are on Saturday & Sunday including Master Classes in beautiful brioche, Dorset buttons,  Fair Isle yokes, and Dresden Plate patchwork and Learning Techniques classes in needlefelt, tapestry crochet, beginners Fair Isle and felting, and Learn to Knit classes. There are also drop-in sessions in stitch and craft.

Don’t forget Mother’s Day  on March 31 with a gift of jewellery from Jail Dornoch, candles from Coast Candle Co, chocolates from Cocoa Mountain or her favourite tipple from the Carnegie Whisky Cellars
