Next fair

UNRAVEL 

February 11-13 2022  Farnham Maltings, Farnham, Surrey

https://farnhammaltings.com/events/unravel-a-festival-of-yarn

Here's what the organisers say "A celebration of all things yarn making from knitting and crochet to spinning and weaving.

At the core of unravel's three day in-person festival is the curated marketplace which showcases independent producers, well established makers alongside first-time yarn show exhibitors from around the UK. In addition, on each day of the festival, there is an inspiring programme of bookable workshops."

We couldn't agree more. It's a fabulous show in a beautiful building in the centre of Farnham. An easy day trip by train from London and easy parking if you arrive by car.
