Team Yarningham (Helen and I) spent a couple of days last week in Edinburgh to visit Edinburgh Yarn Festival. The trip was a chance for us to meet up with exhibitors, experience another urban yarn festival and get to see and squish lots and lots of lovely yarn.
Here are a few photos from our trip
Greyfriars Bobbie statue
Inchkeith Lighthouse lens in National Museum of Scotland. The lens was made in Birmingham by Chance Brothers.
My very reserved purchases from EYF. A project pouch by Danica from Kettle Yarn and some bulb safety pins by Merchant and Mills from Grace at Beyond Measure.
In all we had a great time in Edinburgh. EYF is a great festival. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many stitchers in one place!
We are very pleased to announce that we are planning the next edition of Yarninhgam.
