UK Yarn Shows 2022

Happy new year everyone!

I hope you've got your diary to hand, because we've got a surprisingly full calendar for yarn shows coming up.   Again this year there is a great mixture of online and in-person events, with some events still with details to be confirmed.  There are three new events to add to the yarny calendar: the Cambridge Yarn Festival (online) in February, East Anglia Yarn Festival in Norfolk in March, and Summer Yarn Festival in Bedfordshire at the end of August. 

It's incredibly difficult to organise any kind of event during a pandemic, and organisers have been doing an amazing job of keeping various plates spinning.  I hope you'll continue to support organisers and vendors as much as you can.

My first event for the year is Waltham Abbey Wool Show on 16th January, and I'm really looking forward to seeing your faces again! 

I'll be keeping this list updated throughout the year, and please let me know if you hear of any event changes.
