East Anglia Yarn Festival
A two day event celebrating all things yarn and fibre based in Norwich UK. Bringing together a wonderful mix of businesses both local and from further afield. This third show will take place 9th and 10th March 2024 at the Norfolk Showground Arena.

There will be classes and a ‘Big Stitch Night’ on 8th March which is a charity fundraiser and lots of other exciting things taking place.

EAYF is a new show for me and I am very pleased to have one of the few spaces reserved specifically for designers selling patterns only. This is a great innovation for those of us whose main, if not only, product is patterns. I will have all my samples on display as usual, but I won’t have any kits or other items such as my wooden items with me on this occasion.

Tickets are £12 or £40 for a Deluxe ticket that includes a goody bag.

Buxton Wool Gathering
I am so pleased to be exhibiting at Buxton Wool Gathering again in 2024.

Buxton Wool Gathering is a wool festival dedicated to the best of fibre and yarn, held in the gateway to the Peak District.

Whether you’re into spinning, felting, weaving, knitting, or crochet, there’s something for you. All in a stunning location with some of the friendliest, craftiest people around.

There are also tickets available for a ‘Quiet Hour’ on Sunday 9-10am (same price as a regular day ticket). These allow you to enter from 9am on Sunday morning. We have a limited number of these tickets and they’re intended for anybody who would prefer to avoid a large crowd – these tickets are also valid for the rest of the day so you could leave mid-morning and return in the afternoon (Sunday afternoon is generally quieter at yarn shows).

Here you can find all the information you need. Find details about the event, our exhibitors, Buxton, and the venue. You can also book tickets online. Tickets are £5 or £8 for a weekend ticket.
