    Hi there
    When us the Edinburgh Yarn festival in 2021?
    Warm regards
    Marlene Botha

    1. Being Knitterly

      Hi Marlene, I have not heard when the Edinburgh Yarn Festival will take place. On their website it says that the next EYF will be in 2021. It usually takes place in February, however, with the COVID restrictions, this seems unlikely.

  9. Lúcia

    Em Portugal organizamos o “À Procura do Novelo” nas Caldas da Rainha. Sempre em Setembro. O Próximo é dia 8, 9 e 10 Setembro de 2023.

    1. Nicki Merrall

      Hi Frauke,
      I am happy to add this festival, however, I need to know the venue and dates before I can add it. I have looked on the website, but cannot find this information.
