24 & 25 September
Skipton Auction Mart,
£10 for a day (£8 when purchased in advance), £14 for the weekend
It might be the height of summer right now, but we all know September is on its way, bringing with it cooler evenings, back-to-school shopping trips and, of course, Yarndale – the annual celebration of colour, crochet and creativity held in Skipton, North Yorkshire.
Now in its fourth year, Yarndale has quickly established itself as one of the “don’t miss” events on the yarny calendar, packed with demonstrations, workshops and stalls.
Exhibitors include crochet designer Amanda Perkins, Baa Ram Ewe, TOFT, Truly Hooked, Jane Crowfoot and many more. Inside Crochet columnist Rachel Atkinson will also be there with her gorgeous “Daughter of a Shepherd” yarn – don’t miss out on your chance to give it a fondle! Yarndale is well known for its stunning yarn bombing, filling the local area with colourful yarns and “dressed” lamp posts, bunting and crocheted signs. Lucy from Attic 24 (www.attic24.typepad.com) is one of the organisers, and always arranges a creative community art project for the show. This year the project is a sweet “Woolly Sheep” design (find the pattern on Lucy’s blog) which they are asking people to create and send in for the show, culminating in a huge woolly flock which will be on display at Yarndale before being sold off to raise money for a local hospice for terminally ill children. The show truly is a colourful celebration of all things yarny – and Inside Crochet will also be there with a stall of our own, so come along for your chance to meet the team, try on sample garments and check out the latest issue.
The news story in issue 80 said that day tickets were £8. While this is
the price for advance tickets, fees will be added by EventBrite who are
handling the online sales, and tickets on the day will cost £10. We’re
sorry for any confusion.
