There will be story-telling, crafts and book signing from 10am to 12noon on Saturday February 25 based on Amandaâ€™s farmyard Granny Mutton Yarn series of picture books, plus a chance to see Grannyâ€™s famous 13ft long knitted scarf!
Amandaâ€™s latest book A Knit and a Knot features knitting mad Granny Mutton and grandson Little Lionel who becomes a detective to find her missing wool.
