This Weekend: Festiwool (The Yarn & Wool Fair)

| by Editor | Posted in Hitchin Entertainment, Hitchin Home & Garden

Stock up for this winter’s big knitting season at the Festiwool Yarn & Wool Fair this Saturday in Hitchin.

Hitchin Festiwool

Are you a keen knitter? Or interested in learning to knit for the first time? Then don’t miss this weekend’s knitting extravaganza, Festiwool, The Yarn & Wool Fair taking place at The Priory School on Bedford Road in Hitchin.

From 10am to 5pm on Saturday 11th November is a huge event for knitting, crocheting and quilting fans. With over 50 different exhibitors, knitting presentations and product demos, book signings and a ‘Meet the Podcasters’ green room.

Not only is this event ideal for seasoned knitters, but it’s also a great introduction to the art of knitting for beginners too. Christmas is the perfect excuse to start knitting, and many people find it to be both relaxing and therapeutic. And a fun hobby that can keep you occupied during the winter season when it’s too cold and gloomy to go outside.

Learning to knit also means that you can create unique Christmas gifts for friends and family. So winter 2017 is a great time to start!

Catering will be provided by Vintage Allsorts and some of the exhibitors that will be there include The Wool Kitchen, Unique Yarns, Addicted2knit, Chris Cross Crafts, North Herts Knitting and Crochet Guild, Unbelievawool, Third Vault Yarns, Sue Stratford Designs, The Knitting Shed, Hitchin Lavender, and British Art and Fibre Magazine.

For tickets, please speak to Kim at The Haberdashery Stall at Hitchin Market.


Venue: The Priory School, Bedford Rd, Hitchin SG5 2UR

Date: Saturday 11th November 2017

Time: 10am – 5pm
