2018 Swaledale Triennial dates!

The 2018 TIGHR Triennial in Swaledale will run from┬áMonday 8th October until Thursday 11th October 2018. The first event, the opening ceremony, will be held in St Andrew’s Church, Grinton, shown here in a postcard from 1910. There are a few more trees now but, fundamentally, Grinton still looks like this!


On the day after the closing ceremony and banquet (in a venue that will amaze and delight you…), Friday 12th October, an optional all-day trip to a fantastic handicraft outlet and an astonishingly beautiful village will be available.

During the weekend after the Triennial, on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th October, several extra classes will be taught by visiting teachers of rugmaking.

      Hi Roasario,
      As I explained in the email I sent via Ning, I am unable to edit any member’s details. Only the member can do that.
      As a compromise, I have sent an invitation to join to your new address. I have also edited your message (above) to avoid the possibility of attracting ‘spam’ to your new address.
      With kind regards,
