Shows and events 2020

Exciting NEWS - disappointed with the show cancellations this year I have created my own Leicestershire & Rutland based online yarn show!

It will run LIVE from @leicestersinstayarnshow on Instagram on Saturday 15th August from 9.30am. We are 7 vendors, follow the profile on Instagram then watch the event from your phone or PC in the comfort of your back garden or settee!

As well as my online site you can also buy my products from the many yarn shows that I am showing at during 2020. If you are new to yarn shows they are a great way of meeting dyers, spinners, purveyors of knitting and crochet bits and bobs, designers and many more. Many of the shows are run by individuals (usually crazy about yarn and knitting or crocheting) so you will find that they all have their own individual style and way of putting their show together. Make a weekend out of visiting a show there's always loads more to do in and around the area!
