Edinburgh Yarn Festival is the UK's Premier Contemporary Hand-Knitting Show
After the success of last year’s Meet the Shepherd/ess event on the Sunday morning of EYF, we decided we had to do it again! This year, we’ve doubled exhibitors and exhibition space, added to the mix, extending the hand of festival friendship to a few businesses who aren’t yarn-makers, but whose work is based on WOOL.
The Sunday @ EYF is an altogether smaller affair with a relaxed pace, but with an exciting line-up. Many folks will still be around, saying goodbye to new and old friends and MAKE::WOOL will be a great place for a last knitty “hooray“ before the yarny curtain falls for another year. You will have the chance to get together and have a cake and a coffee (the bar will be open), to sit and knit in the marquee, say good-bye to friends and to perhaps end your visit with a few souvenir purchases from our extraordinary woolly vendors. We’re highlighting smaller businesses whose dedication to sheep and wool shines through. We have farmers, smallholders and owners of Shetlands, Blackfaces, Hebrideans and a variety of other breeds. There will be, tweed, embroidery, weaving, knitted pieces and a smattering of pottery too. Oh yes, and wool.
To round it off we will offer talks by two industry experts: Kate Davies and John Arbon.
What is Make::Wool? It’s a smaller market with around 25 vendors.
Our marquee with 500 seats will be open for a sit-and-knit and we are hosting two talks as well (see below for details)!
When is it? Sunday 24th March 2019 from 10 am to 2 pm.
Where will it be held? At the Corn Exchange, our main event venue for EYF.
