knitting events 2011

I’ve made it back home safely, am slowly unpacking, and trying to get myself organised again.  I’m aware that a quarter of the year has passed already (eeek!) but nonetheless I thought it might be helpful to put together a list of the major knitterly events coming up, as I did last year.  As I live in London there’s obviously a south-eastern bias, but please let me know of any major omissions.

Get your diaries out folks…

9-10 April         Wonderwool Wales Royal Welsh Showground, Builth Wells, Powys, Wales

24-25 June       Woolfest Mitchells Lakeland Livestock Centre, near Cockermouth, Cumbria

15-17 July         Knit Nation Imperial College, London

23-24 July        Fibre-East Scald End Farm, Mill Rd, Thurleigh, Bedford

20-21 August   FibreFest Bicton College, East Budleigh, Budleigh Salterton, Devon

3-4 Sept            British Wool Weekend Harrogate

6-9 October     Knitting and Stitching Show Ally Pally, London

28-29 Oct        Fibre Flurry Birmingham

10-13 Nov        Knitting and Stitching Show RDS, Dublin

24-27 Nov       Knitting and Stitching Show Harrogate

So tell me, what events are you looking forward to this year?

  1. Nice to have you back and thanks for this – I’ve been gagging for a comprehensive list of UK fibre events. I find out about most of them after the fact.

    Are you not taking part in blog week? 😦


  2. I was really looking forward to this year edition of Knit Nation as i missed it last year but we’re planning to move to Scotland in May so I don’t really think I will be able to attend :/

    I just found your blog- it’s fantastic!


  3. Is it time for Wonderwool already?! I remember trying to figure out if I could possibly swing it last year…which seemed like it was just a couple of months ago. I can’t believe it’s already basically the middle of 2011 already.


  4. Dear Larissa,

    This is a friendly follow-up to our first message to you (May 2010), to warmly invite you again to list your blog on our Expat Women Blog Directory ( Blogs like yours are excellent sources of information for relocating expats, so we would love to include it with our other 1,700+ self-listed blogs.

    We are also excited to let you know that we just re-launched our main website (, so please drop by and have a look if you are interested.

    Many, many thanks and wishing you success abroad!
