What is Edinburgh Yarn Festival?


A festival of all things woolly and related to yarn, knitting, crochet, spinning, weaving and felting! We will host a fantastic market place with 100+ selected vendors, great workshops and wrap it all up with a host of other attractions. All of it in/close to one of the city's premier exhibition venues: The Edinburgh Corn Exchange. Whether you have never knitted/crochet/spun/woven/felted before, or you are a yarn-junkie already, you will love it - promise. Meet like-minded people and make new friends, show off your latest finished project or WIP, eat and drink in our yarn cafe, socialise, shop and learn a new skill.

We really hope you can make it!

The Market Place

After the first Edinburgh Yarn Festival you told us that you loved the vendors, but that you would have loved more of them. You told us that you enjoyed your time immensely, but that you would have loved to have much more time to browse and shop. You'll have it! Two days rather than one, over 100 exhibitors rather than 40. The line-up is shaping up to be fantastic and we are saving our pennies already. From mid-October you will see updates on our exhibitor's list. Apart from our firm favourites, we will show-case some cracking new vendors that have never been seen here in Scotland.
