Knitting Event Calendar November & December 2016

Autumn is always a busy time for us with lots of different knitting events, and October flew by with the new collection launch, the Knitting and Stitching Show and a fully booked knitting workshop! We have had so much fun with it all and loved every minute.  Today has definitely felt a bit colder, but we don’t mind, out comes the knitwear and we curl up on the sofa with our choice of hot drinks. Kari-Helene is all about the coffee whilst Tracy can’t be without her favourite cup of tea!

Coming up over the next two months we have a few very exciting knitting events and we are looking forward to seeing you at one of these!

1. Yarnporium – 5th and 6th of November

This brand new knitting show takes place at King’s College on the Strand in London. We are very excited to be included in a stunning looking line up of vendors.  The venue is small and Alison and Rachel from Yarn in the City have chosen a lovely group of makers and designers to display their goods at the show. You can still get tickets online by clicking here!


2. Harrogate Knitting and Stitching Show – 24th – 27th of November

This is one of our favourite knitting events of the year. It is starting to feel festive with fairy lights in the streets and possibly some snow in the air. The lovely people of Harrogate are coming to do their Christmas shopping at the Knitting and Stitching Show. Get your tickets online here! We will be in the Textile Gallery again which is just in from the main entrance to hall A on stand TG628. We will be bringing our new collection to the stand. Take a look here to preview which one you will be knitting this winter!


3. Our online advent calendar!

Every day in December we will be sending out an email to our newsletter subscribers. The email will provide you with a small surprise for that specific day. We hope you will take part in our Christmas count down by making sure you are signed up to and receiving our newsletters. You can sign up by entering your email right here in the middle of the home page or via Facebook by clicking here.


4. Christmas market, Manor Farm – 10th of December

The fabulous Manor Farm in Bourn has become our new workshop venue. We love the look and feel of this place. With their newly opened cafe serving delicious grub and great coffee and their old, charming barn this place is definitely worth a visit. The Christmas market takes place on Saturday the 10th of December and we hope to see you there!


5. Knitting Workshop – 11th of December

Our last workshop of 2016 takes place on Sunday the 11th of December. Kari-Helene will be bringing some Scandinavian Christmas cookies, and the menu might be a touch more festive than normal. Tracy might even entertain us with some carol singing!? One thing is certain, there will be lots of time for knitting! The alpacas will be looking forward to seeing you too. Book your place by clicking here.


We are both very excited about everything happening over the next few months and look forward to catching up with you at one of these events! Let us know which one you will be attending!
