Unravel Yarn Festival 2019

This fantastic yarn festival was held over the weekend of 22nd to 24th February. We were very lucky with the weather and had a nice large number of visitors over the three days.

Organising the event is always a mammouth task which starts as soon as the previous one is over! Many thanks to the Farnham Maltings staff and volunteers who always put together a wonderful diverse group of workshops and displays, as well as organising exhibitors and sellers attending the event. There are always far more people applying to be there than there is space to have everyone, so I don't envy the task the organisers have making the final decisions!

I will be showing what I purchased at Unravel in a video on YouTube.

Again this year, Kim and I had space for a drop-in crochet and knitting surgery for the whole three days. As we are both primarily crocheters, most of the sample work on display was our own crochet work but we did also have a small number of knitted pieces. Many thanks to our friends Maggie and Anne who helped us out over the three days and they primarily helped with the knitting questions.

Our preparations for this event always include having handouts we can give people which show some basic crochet stitches or projects they can try with us and take away to try at home. These include a traditional granny square, a crochet circle, and a crochet triangle.

Another document I've been maintaining now for a couple of years is a list of local knitting, crochet, and craft groups in the local community (Surrey & Hampshire, UK). If you are particularly interested in a copy of this document, please let me know and I can email you a copy. If you have a group you attend regularly which you know is open to having new members, let me know and I can add them to the list. I am primarily interested in groups who meet in Surrey and Hampshire . I will, of course, contact the organisers to ensure they are happy to go on a list which is handed out to anyone who asks.

That'll be it for today's blog. Thanks for popping by!
