Team Yarningham visit EYF

Last weekend Helen and I took a train to visit Edinburgh Yarn Festival.  The festival, now in it’s 5th year was bigger than ever.  This was our second visit to the festival and we had a great time.  Here are a few pictures from our trip.


Leaving Birmingham


We met Zebedee, who was on his very first train ride.


Getting our stitch on, on the train.

March 2018 Hootenanny

Thanks to everyone who came to our March hootenanny last week.  It was great to meet some new faces and see our regulars.

The night was a bit of a disaster on my part.  I forgot to bring the yarn I needed to work on my project so spent the evening watching other people stitch.

Here is the only photo I managed to take.


Our next stitch hootenanny is Wednesday 11 April, 6-9pm at Tilt Birmingham. Until then, Happy Stitching!

Our most recent hootenanny was on Valentine’s Day and love was in the air – love for yarn that is! Despite the horrible weather we still had a lovely time with some of our regulars.

Our next hootenanny will be on March 14th 2018. Come along and join us!  For more info visit our website.



February hootenanny reminder


Don’t forget that next Wednesday is our monthly stitch up.  We know that it’s Valentines Day, but you love your knitting too, don’t you?

So pack up a project and come get your stitch on.  All are welcome – you don’t even have to be good!

Hootenanny review – January 2018

Last week Wednesday saw our first hootenanny of the year.

We are starting to build up a regular crew of stitchers who join us each month for some stitching and a pint.  This has got me thinking about doing some sort of public knitting project again.  I’m not sure whether it should be a knit graffiti project or something else.  Best to leave it with me for a while.  These things take time.

If you have any suggestions for projects feel free to get in touch.  We always like to hear from you.  You can send us an email or get in touch via our Facebook page.

Our next hootenanny is on Wednesday 14 February.  More details on our website.  Until then here are a few poorly lit photos from last week.
