You can’t have a yarn festival without cake. But don’t worry Team Yarningham have got all your sweet treat needs covered.
We will have a delicious selection of cakes baked by Blueberry Hill Patisserie who do quite wonderful things with eggs, butter and flour. There will be vegan options available.
And thanks to feedback and recommendations from our audience, we will also have gluten free cakes from Paisley Immy Cakes.
Our cake stall will be located in our social area within Yarningham Marketplace. Make sure you stop by for a sugar hit.
Advanced tickets for Yarningham Marketplace are available here for £5 (+ booking fee).
There’s just under two weeks before our beginners knitting and beginners crochet classes start.
So, come and learn to knit or crochet (or both!) with us. All materials are included in the class price. You also get a slice of cake.
For bookings and more info see our website here.
We also have some exciting news up our sleeves for a big event in July. More info coming soon.
Next week Stitches and Hos will be holding a practical workshop for adults at Ikon Gallery. We’ll be looking at the themes and ideas in the current Sarah Browne exhibition in a fun and informal way.
Thursday 1 March, 2-4pm at Ikon Gallery
Places are free but limited, please contact Ikon Gallery to reserve your place.
If you can’t make it along to the workshop I highly recommend a trip to Ikon. Both the Sarah Browne and Hamish Fulton exhibitions are great. They also do homemade cake in the cafe.
Also don’t forget next Tuesday (28 Feb) is our regular monthly knitting hootenanny at Hare and Hounds. We’ll be in the back bar from 7:30pm. Sounds to stitch to by Helga Henry and Gemma Thomas. Wool and needles provided. You don’t even have to be good!
Over the weekend stitches and hos staged a knit in at Created in Birmingham pop up shop. We took over their sofas and invited people to come and join us, learn to knit and help us create a knitted sign for the shop.
The weekend was a great success with lots of new faces and new knitters. Unfortunately our goal of knitting Created in Birmingham wasn’t reached but we can finish off what we started at our next monthly meet.
I want to say a big thank you to Pete Ashton and everyone at Created in Birmingham shop for being lovely hosts. Thanks also to Commercially Inviable DJ’s, Fox, Catweasel, Heat and Light and Kings Heath Radiophonic Workshop for DJ’ing. A special thanks to Shady Bard for their beautiful acoustic set and Carolyn Morton for yummy cake stand.
Here are some pictures from the weekend

We’re off to Walsall to create some knitted chaos as part of Making Do. It’s a free event – yes free with lots of stuff going on. See below for more details. Hopefully we’ll see you there
7inch Cinema and Capsule present MAKING DO
A free late night event on Thursday 7 May, 6pm – 9pm
The New Art Gallery Walsall in partnership with 7inch Cinema and Capsule want to take you on a magical journey back to the 1950s with an evening event of listening, viewing, drinking and doing on Thursday 7 May, 6pm – 9pm. Inspired by Britain’s make-and-mend post-war spirit, the event brings together screenings of short films, live music performances courtesy of Pram (Domino Records), July Skies and The Winter League, workshops and activities and a nostalgic and street party atmosphere throughout the award winning building!
Trevor Woolery will be running an animation workshop at the art library and people’s animated stories and characters will be instantly projected onto the wall and become part of an animation story.
Sara Fowles from Stitches and Hos, an organisation that is outing knitting from the private domain to the public realm, will be showcasing the art of knitting and will be inviting people to join her and create anything from socks to scarves.
Alongside the free food and refreshments that we will be offering that night, our visitors will also have the opportunity to decorate their own cake, with patterns, shapes and colours of their choice.
