2013 knitting events

It’s January, and it’s been snowing for days – perfect knitting weather!  I hope you’re all suitably rugged up in knitwear.  I feel rather smug heading out in my hand-knit woollens to keep me warm!
I think it’s shaping up to be another great year for knitting events in the UK.  Here’s my annual round-up of the big knitting/woolly events that are coming up, and in chronological order, so you can plan your year:

23-24 Feb        Unravel Farnham Maltings, Farnham, Surrey

16 March         Edinburgh Yarn Festival The Drill Hall, Edinburgh

27-28 April     Wonderwool Wales Royal Welsh Showground, Builth Wells, Powys, Wales

28-29 June     Woolfest Mitchells Lakeland Livestock Centre, near Cockermouth, Cumbria

27-28 July       Fibre-East Redborne Community College, Ampthill, Bedfordshire

7-8 Sept           British Wool Weekend The Great Yorkshire Showground, Harrogate

28-29 Sept      Yarndale Skipton Auction Mart, Skipton, Yorkshire

31 Oct-3 Nov   Knitting and Stitching Show RDS, Dublin

21-24 Nov        Knitting and Stitching Show Harrogate

I’m very pleased to see the ol’ favourites with some new events too.

Please leave a comment if you know of others that I’ve missed out, and let me know where you’re planning on heading!

  1. What an impressive list. I’ll definitely be heading to Unravel, Fibre East and Ally Pally being down that end of the country, but I’d dearly love to go to Wonderwool or Woolfest if I could manage it!
