So here it is, what you have all been waiting for.  The Yarningham 2020 Exhibitor List is announced!

We’ve packed our marketplace with some of the best independent yarn dyers and producers; knit and crochet designers; online and bricks and mortar yarn businesses and makers of knitting, crochet, spinning and weaving notions, tools and accessories.

This year we had a record number of applications making the usually difficult job of selection even harder.  We would like to thank everyone who took the time to fill in an application form.

Yarningham Marketplace will be open on Saturday 11 July from 11-5pm and Sunday 12 July from 11-4pm.  Early Bird and Advance Tickets will go on sale shortly.

Knitting Picnic for WWKIP Day 2018

Come get your stitch on outside to celebrate World Wide Knit In Public (WWKIP) Day.

WWKIP Day is the largest knitter run event in the world so on Saturday 9 June, grab your current project, pack a picnic and come and join us in the great outdoors of Kings Heath Park to celebrate.

World Wide Knit In Public Day was started in 2005 by Danielle Landes as a way for knitters to come together and enjoy each others company. Knitting is traditionally seen as a solitary act, done behind the closed doors of the home. WWKIP Day was created to get knitters out of their houses and into the fresh air.
