    Knitsonik Playbook Trunk Show at Meet The Shepherdess

  • When
    18 March 10:00 - 22:00
  • As part of Meet the Shepherdess - an event curated and organised by Edinburgh Yarn Festival - I will be presenting a trunk show of samples from my forthcoming book, the KNITSONIK Stranded Colourwork Playbook. See the samples, ask me about the project, and don't forget to enquire about the bit of the book that was born at EYF!

    There will also be lots and lots of other wonderful stalls and vendors to see; from the official events page:

    Amongst the many yarns shown off during EYF, there is one category which bears a closer look: the "farm to skein" yarns. The person you chat to on the stand will in all likelihood be the same person who has nurtured the sheep, delivered the lambs, managed the land, and perhaps even shorn the fleece from which the skein in your hand is spun. They may have collected and sorted more fleece from crofts or farms just a mile down the road before sending it to be scoured and spun. It's a relationship to the animals, to the land and to the community that the producers take a real pride in, and we want to give you the chance to 'Meet the Shepherd/ess'. Find out the story behind your skein of yarn! 8 or the 12 exhibitors will not have been on show at the main event, so it's the ideal opportunity to pick up some last minute souvenir yarn before EYF is over for another year. For full details of all attending producers are available here.

    Bring your knitting and talk about your experiences from the previous days. Think of it as a 'knit morning' with coffee and scones and pastries available from the Concourse bar — all with loads of room to sit and socialise in the Marquee!
    See you there?
