There will tons of things happening on the day with workshops and over 30 stalls from yarn dyers and spinners, pattern designers and all kinds of knitting and crochet supplies. I think most of the workshops sold out as soon as they were posted online, but the Drill Hall also has a cafe and seating area where you can take along any yarn projects you might be working on for an impromptu crafting session. You can find out all the details at the Edinburgh Yarn Festival site, including a full list of the stall holders here. These are just a few that I am especially looking forward to...
The Skein Queen's stall with be the first yarny loveliness I'll be heading for! I'm really excited about getting to meet lovely Debbie for the first time in person, not to mention getting to 'squish' all of her lovely yarns! Do hop over and read her 60 second interview on the Edinburgh Yarn Festival blog.
Susan Crawford is the co-author of the self published 'A Stitch in Time', a collection of reproduction vintage knitting patterns from 1920-1949. I adore the beautiful orange jumper in the bottom left corner below, with those sweet crochet flowers on the neckline. You can read her 60 second interview here.
Anyhow, while I am there I shall do my best to squeeze in a wee bit of camera clicking between all the yarn 'squishing' and will report back sometime next week. In the meantime, if you're not in Edinburgh tomorrow, do take a peek at all the stallholders individual sites for more beautiful yarny goodness.
Have a wonderful weekend!
