Yarningham looks, sees and does a yarn festival differently. As the only Black led yarn festival in the UK we are unique.
We are the only independent yarn festival in the West Midlands. It is vital that we make it easy for as many people to attend by having an accessible venue and good public transport links.
We pride ourselves on programming new and innovative stitch based workshops not seen at other yarn festivals.
Exhibitors are selected blindly based solely on their application form for that year. This helps ensure that we meet our target of at least 50% of the marketplace being new to Yarningham each year.
Yarningham is the place to find new dyers & producers. We are committed to seeking out new talent and unearthing existing hidden gems. This means constantly looking for and researching dyers, producers and designers to invite to apply.
