Just over a month to go and we are getting really excited about the first ever Nottingham Yarn Expo.
We have a super Yarn filled extravaganza of a week-end in store for you.
Alongside all the delectable stalls and exhibitors we have lined up there are other amazing treats in the offing!
We are absolutely delighted to have US knitting superstar Marie Greene of Olive Knits appear at NYE and this is her UK debut. If you would like to join her on ‘The Pick Up Artist’ there are a couple of spaces left, but be quick to avoid disappointment (‘Sweater Whisperer’ is now full). Don’t miss her free talk on ‘The Makers Way’.
Another first which we are equally thrilled with is the UK launch of ‘WOODS’ by Making Stories. This fabulous knitting design book is truly gorgeous. We received our advance copy earlier this week and cannot put it down! It is a must buy, and you will get opportunity to meet the inspirational team behind this delightful project as both Verena Cohrs and Hanna Lisa Haffercamp are coming over from Berlin for NYE. What’s more many of the yarn companies and designers involved in this project will be exhibiting at NYE so you can squish the yarn that makes up the projects in the book! Verena and Hanna Lisa are also giving a free talk on their inspiration behind the project, do not miss this!
All of the workshops on sale offer a wonderful range of opportunities for you to hone and develop your techniques as well as make new friends.
Along with the Marketplace, Workshops and free talks we also have fabulous live music over the week-end from ‘Highly Strung’ a string quartet and Harpist Lisa Wright in the central court.
Sheep inspired poetry will also be read from the team at Candlestick Press in the lecture theatre.
There is a café on site for you to enjoy with plenty of seating, as well as a cash point on site in case the temptation is too much!
All these events take place in one simply stunning venue so you can move easily from one to another, what could be better? Purchase an advance ticket and get discounted tram travel. Treat yourself and head over to our website and put some Hygge into your November.
