November yarn shows

Where has the year gone?  It seems I blinked and missed it!  It just means that now we’ve reached autumn, the knitters’ favourite time of year, and it’s peak yarn show season.  Being a solo yarn dyer I try to plan out my year’s schedule carefully, but sometimes it’s a bit like buses that all come along at once.

First up is the Yarnporium this coming weekend, November 5th and 6th.  It’s an event held by the team behind Yarn in the City, and there is a great range of stalls and workshops over the two days.   The event is located very centrally at King’s College London on the Strand, and is perfect for people travelling across London as well as further afield.

Then the following Saturday 12th, I’ll be back at Hitchin Festiwool.  This is my third year there as a vendor.  It’s always such a friendly event, and I’m very much looking forward to catching up with lots of people from previous events.

I’ll be bringing your favourite colourways of course, as well as a brand new Brambleberry colourway inspired by the season.

These are my last two shows for the year, so I hope you can come along!

more knitting events

Since my post a few months ago there have been a couple of updates to the list of knitting events for 2014.  And guess what?  I’m planning on vending at both of them!

The first addition is the Popup Wool Show taking place on Saturday 16th August in Bebington, Cheshire.  There are some amazing yarn dyers attending (as well as travelknitter, of course!), including Fyberspates and Natural Dye Studio, so it’s well worth checking out.  It’s a part of the world that I’m not familiar with, so I’m looking forward to making a weekend of it.  If you live in that neck of the woods, I’ve been reliably informed that there are good transport links from both Liverpool and Chester.

The second addition to the list is Hitchin Festiwool.  This is a brand new event in Hitchin, Hertfordshire on 2nd November.  Hitchin is a lovely market town, and an easy train ride direct from London King’s Cross.  I’m especially looking forward to it as I have friends who live  in the area, and I’m expecting it to be a lovely atmosphere.

So, book them in your diary, and be sure to let me know if you’re planning on coming!
