Knitting event calendar – February to April 2017

We’ve got some exciting events for you over the next three months, both in terms of three new workshop dates and also three of our most favourite knitting shows! We’re visiting Scotland for the Edinburgh Yarn Festival, Wales for Wonderwool and we’re attending Unravel a little closer to home.

The three workshops we have lined up for you will be the three last workshops of this set up for this year as Kari-Helene will be taking maternity leave from the end of April.  They will take place at Bourn Village Hall which is a short drive from where the alpacas now live.  Bourn is a lovely village, about nine miles west of Cambridge and even mentioned in the Doomsday Book!

So without further ado; this is what we’re up to for the next three months!

1. Knitting Workshop 4th February

We’re preparing a lovely day at Bourn Village Hall located in the cute and picturesque village of Bourn. The alpacas are thriving here and they look forward to welcoming you all to their new home. Choose your project at the workshop after trying everything on and we will give you individual tuition on any questions you may have regarding the pattern. Book your place here by paying a £25 deposit.

2. Unravel

We’re back in Farnham for this 2 and a half day long show on the 17th to 19th of February. The show is held at the Farnham Maltings, a wonderful maze of small rooms making this an intimate and charming show. The town itself has a lovely atmosphere and makes this a perfect knitting destination!

3. Edinburgh Yarn Festival

EYF takes place on the 10th and 11th of March this year. This fabulous yarn show, now in its fourth year, has gained an excellent, international reputation and attracts visitors, exhibitors and workshop holders from all over the world. We think it’s a must for any serious knitter to visit and hope to see lots of you there this year! You can buy advance tickets on the website as this is likely a sell out event.



4. Knitting Workshop 26th March

At our workshops we serve home cooked lunch and treats. Kari-Helene loves cooking and takes great pride in serving a delicious, nutritious and maybe ever so slightly naughty lunch. There are treats served throughout the day as well as the two course lunch, so we sure hope nobody will leave hungry. We also supply constant tea and coffee. Come give it a try at the March workshop!

5. Wonderwool

This charming wool show takes place on the 22nd and 23rd of April in a sheep auction mart in rural Wales and we love it here! The drive to Builth Wells is always charming and takes us through some stunning scenery. The show is one of the larger knitting shows we attend but they still manage to keep an intimate atmosphere and they always provide excellent food stalls. Kari-Helene highly recommends the amazing sweet tarts!

6. Knitting Workshop 29th April

If you are unsure if there will be anything for you to learn at one of our knitting workshops why not have a look at this blog post Kari-Helene wrote on just this topic.
This will be our last date for 2017 in this format as after this date Kari-Helene will be taking maternity leave, so make sure to book onto this one as we are expecting spaces to fill quickly!

So that takes us to the end of April. We look forward to seeing you at one of these events!
