Solva Woollen Mill

We are having a few days away in Wales and yesterday took the opportunity to visit the Solva Woollen Mill where I have wanted to visit for some time.  It is a working mill and has lots wonderful things to see, but my reason for visiting is I have a great love of the work of Jackie Morris who is and writer and illustrator and she sells some of her work here.     On September 24th the launch of two of her books ‘Something about a Bear’ and ‘Cat Walk’ will be at the Solva Woollen Mill, unfortunately I cannot get time off to go as I work in a school.    So I ordered the two books in the Mill and was also very fortunate to be able to have a sneak preview of the books.   They are amazing, beautiful and inspirational!

My friend ‘Little Cat’ came along for the ride and had a grand time, he met ‘sheep’ and ‘Anna’ (the owner) and had a super time looking at books and doing some shopping.     He is very hopeful that as we have been entered into the prize draw he may win the wonderful painting of ‘Mary’

If you are ever near this part of the world the Solva Woollen Mill is a wonderful place to visit
