A one off magazine to celebrate Yarningham Online 2021.  Yarn + Stitch magazine is the physical aspect of this year’s online festival. We usually produce a show brochure that has useful information about the festival and we commission exclusive patterns so that it then becomes something to keep, a memento of the customers visit to the festival. 


With Yarn + Stitch magazine, we wanted to create something permanent, a tangible, physical item, beautifully designed with fantastic content.  We chose the theme of friendship and connections for the magazine, which is really the basis of Yarningham.  Everything within the magazine goes back to the aims and values we set out when creating Yarningham.
