Guide to UK Yarn Shows 2021

 

Hello, and welcome to 2021!

The world of yarn shows has changed enormously since this time last year.  In-person shows have largely been suspended over the past 11 months, and may or may not be running again later this year.  There are however several online virtual yarn shows that have popped up to fill the gap, because there's no keeping us away from yarn!  These are a great way to keep in touch with your favourite yarny people via live streams, virtual marketplaces, and special events.

I've created this list with the usual proviso that there will be many changes as the year progresses depending on how Covid restrictions develop.  I'll keep updating this list as much as possible, and please do let me know of any new shows that you become aware of.

Oh, and keep an eye out for the shows that I'll be attending.
