When she isn’t globetrotting to eat ice cream, meet friends and teach knitting, you can find her at home in London. As a teacher her main goal is to share knowledge and inspire, whatever your level of skill and confidence.

We are very pleased to announce the third edition of our fibre festival Yarningham.

Yarningham 2018 will take place on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 July 2018.  It will feature an expanded marketplace, extended workshop programme and lots more that we can’t tell you about just yet.

What we can tell you is that we have a new venue.  Yarningham 2018 will be held at Uffculme Centre, Birmingham. It was built in 1891 for Richard Cadbury and his family. Gifted to the city in 1916, it has now been converted into a training and conference centre.

Applications for marketplace exhibitors will open on Monday 18 September. Application forms will be available to download from our website from midday.
