We are very pleased to announce the workshop programme for Yarningham 2018.

This year our workshop programme is bigger than ever.  Our wonderful new venue Uffculme Centre has given us the scope to programme even more stitch based workshops.

You can find the full programme on our website here.  All workshops are £40 (+ booking fee) and include entrance into the marketplace on the day of your workshop.

Lorna Bakes @ Yarningham

I would like to introduce you to Lorna-Mary Webb.  She runs LM Projects as a freelance producer and is a massive lover of cake.

Lorna has been catering for quite a few years and started to include it under the title of ‘Producer’ after she found a real passion for baking. After some time working in tour catering, she decided to stay closer to home and trained as a Barista. She now runs Front of House at Buddy’s 232 cafe, in Digbeth, baking cakes, making great coffee (she’s been told) and keeping customers happy and in check.

Now everyone knows that you can’t have a fibre festival (or any kind of festival) without cake. So we got in touch with Lorna to make sure that we have lots of delicious cakes for Yarningham.

Here are some  of Lorna’s previous bakes to whet your appetite.

Lorna has chosen to bake some traditional cakes and loaves, some naughty tray bakes, a gluten free and vegan option, as well as a ‘ Yarningham show stopper`. So, hopefully something for every sweet tooth.

 

One more for luck

We are delighted to announce one more exhibitor for Yarningham.

Yarn Angels are a new Birmingham based dye duo of Lizzie and Fiona.  The produce mostly one of a kind, hand dyed skeins on a wide range of fibres including merino, silk, alpaca and bamboo.

We are pleased as punch that Yarningham will be Yarn Angels’ first fibre festival.  We had hoped to find a dye company based here in our home town of Birmingham when we started putting Yarningham together.  It turned out to be a long search to find someone, but I think you will agree it was worth the wait. Their skeins look wonderful.  I can’t wait to get my hands on some.

And with only 6 weeks to go until Yarningham, I won’t have to wait too long!
