Shows and events 2021

Updated 28/5/21 - please check more often than usual as Covid restrictions are affecting plans month by month.

As well as my online site you can also buy my products from the many yarn shows that I am selling at during 2021.

Despite the Covid vaccination programme the virus looks set to affect our daily lives for many months to come yet not least of all the gatherings of large groups of people. Regrettably this has and will affect some of the planned shows this year. As I write this on Sunday 24th January I'd just learnt of the cancelled Fibre East show in July this year. Obviously there is a lot of planning involved in setting up shows with a huge investment in time and money both of which can not be retrieved in the event of cancellation. So whilst July seems like a long way away and things should be considerably better by then there's no way of accurately guessing what restrictions could still be in place. Understandably the relaxation of large indoor gatherings will be one of the last to happen. So we all need to stay safe stick to the rules and enjoy our crafting as much as possible.

As soon as we are allowed I will be having a Garden event at my house (Leicester) as I did last November (date tbc depending on the weather but I'm planning on Wednesday 31st March 2021). Limited people allowed at any one time, mask wearing compulsory but not least of all LOTS of lovely yarn and kits to buy. Sign up for a newsletter to keep up to date.

 

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!
