Dewars Centre Perth
Perth Festival of Yarn is Scotland's Contemporary Fibre Festival; bringing boutique independent businesses, sheep-farmers and those that practice the fibre arts together, to celebrate the best in textile artistry through a large marketplace, with classes and lectures to inspire.
This year it returns for the fourth year and takes place on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th September 2019.
Perth was shortlisted by the public in the Best Knitting Show/Event category in the 2018 British Knitting and Crochet Awards and welcomed festival-goers from 19 different countries in the same year!
Festival Director, Eva Christie, and her team are excited to deliver a Vendors' Gallery of 80 independent UK, EU and (for the first time US) businesses including Di Gilpin, The Border Mill, Truly Hooked, Lady Dye Yarns and El Robledal de la Santa Mohair.
Classes over the weekend will be delivered by internationally respected tutors/designers including Françoise Danoy, André de Castro and Steve Malcolm (Mr Hugzzz); while the keynote lecture will be delivered by Jeanette Sloan!
