Date and Venue Revealed!

It's been a long time coming, and thanks ever so much for your patience. We're finally ready to announce the second - bigger and better - Edinburgh Yarn Festival!

We'll offer a much bigger marketplace and more classes too. There will be more yarn and notions than you thought possible. For EYF13, we aimed to have ‘the best yarn store in Edinburgh, just for the day’. For the next festival we plan to create the Yarn Department Store of your Dreams – and for the whole weekend. Exciting!

We love the venue - they're very experienced at supporting a whole raft of events such as this - and we're planning an exciting line-up of exhibitors and workshops. Edinburgh has great transport links, and the Corn Exchange is well served by buses and there’s even a train station across the road. There's a plethora of things to do here for those who - gasp! - don't share your love of the woolly stuff. We hope you come north (or south!) and make a weekend of it.

Hear the interview with us
The lovely Louise Scollay blogs about British wools and yarn people at and has a great podcast too: she's released a special exclusive edition in honour of this announcement! Hear us, Mica and Jo, talking about the next, bigger and better EYF2015 here. We had great fun and lots of laughs doing the interview, and hope you enjoy it as much.

It’s a long way until next March (though it will pass in the blink of an eye for us organisers!) but there’s lots to look forward to: more details to follow, of course.

We know some of you are really keen to volunteer at EYF2015, and we're really happy about that, but we're not there yet! Please subscribe to the blog and we'll post details of how to participate nearer the time. 

So, knit hard this coming year, and be prepared to be inspired!
