Meet Sylvia Watts-Cherry


Meet Sylvia Watts-Cherry. Sylvia is a UK based designer who loves bold patterns and striking colours. She learned to knit at the age of 8 and is a prolific knitter, using her African heritage as well as her Scottish upbringing for inspiration.

Sylvia was a runner up in Kirstie’s Handmade Christmas Jumper in 2018, with her African inspired Christmas sweater and has had patterns published in Knit Now and Pompom Quarterly magazines. Her most recognisable pattern to date is the Nubian Queen jumper.  The design went viral on social media in early 2019.

A qualified teacher, Sylvia uses her skills in teaching Intarsia colourwork workshops and other knitting techniques.

We are delighted that Sylvia will be designing our second exclusive pattern for our 5th birthday brochure.

Our 5th birthday brochure is only available at Yarningham Marketplace.

Meet Gurinder Hatchard


Meet Crochet Designer, Gurinder Hatchard who runs Yay For Crochet.  Gurinder was born and bred in Birmingham and taught to crochet by her mum when she was 7 years old.

When Gurinder had her own children she got her crojo back and began creating silly hats, blankets and amigurumi for them.

Gurinder specialises in designing fun, bright designs for kids and kids at heart! Her patterns have appeared in Inside Crochet, Crochet Now, Your Crochet and Knitting magazines.

We are delighted that Gurinder has agreed to design an exclusive crochet pattern for our 5th Birthday Brochure.  Being from Birmingham, Yarningham is a very special event for her.

We can’t wait to share Gurinder’s exclusive design with you, but you will have to wait just a little bit longer.

Our 5th birthday brochure is only available at Yarningham Marketplace.

Yarningham brochures


Our Yarningham brochures have arrived.

A big thanks to Ben Javens for designing the layout.  Another big thanks to Kirsten McTeer who has donated a sock pattern called ‘Bournville Socks’.  The pattern is named after Bournville, an area of Birmingham, famous worldwide as the home of Cadbury’s.  In fact the Cadbury factory is just behind our Yarningham venue.

Don’t forget to pick a brochure up when you attend Yarningham.
