UK Yarn Shows 2023

Hello!  Welcome to my annual round up of the woolly and yarny shows across the UK.

Every year there is a mixture of old favourites and new events, and 2023 is no exception.  There are some significant events that are no longer taking place, such as the long-standing Woolfest in Cumbria which will be missed by many in the fibre community.

At this stage I'll be vending at three events this year, so scroll through to see where you can find Travelknitter yarns in person.  I'm particularly looking forward to East Anglia Yarn Fest, which will be my first ever trip to Norwich!

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