This is the 4th Edinburgh Yarn Festival, hosted in the Edinburgh Corn Exchange, a historic venue with modern conveniences. With a focus on hand-knitting, with a little crochet, spinning, weaving and felting thrown in for good measure, there will be something of interest for all yarn and textile enthusiasts!
Hand-picked exhibitors from all over the UK, and beyond, are invited to show off and sell the most luxurious and interesting products and supplies the Yarn and Knitting Industry has to offer. Come and join us!
10.00* - 17.30 on Friday 10th March 2017
10.00* - 17.00 on Saturday 11th March 2017
*If you are planning to visit, but don't have an advance ticket, we recommend that you don't arrive before 10am as a lot of advance ticket holders are expected first thing and the majority will be admitted first. We will admit visitors throughout the day over the weekend - there's no fixed limit of tickets, but we expect it to be very busy first thing and you may have to wait a little to get in.
Advance online ticket sales are now closed, but you can buy tickets at the door. (cash only!) The ticket desk will open at 11am.
Day Admission: £12
We dont anticipate any issues gaining admittance throughout the day on both days without an advance ticket, but we would recommend that you don't arrive before 10am as we will admit waiting advance ticket holders first and we wouldn't want you do wait unnecessarily. We will open the ticket desk as soon as the first rush is over.
Remember, you do not need an entrance ticket to the festival if you booked a 3-hour class. All students (with a 3-hour class) have weekend entry included in the class fee.
