I’m working remotely at the moment, but I’m still in touch with what’s happening in Glasgow, including the forthcoming…
The Glasgow School of Yarn
This weekend (Friday October 17th & Saturday 18th) sees the fourth annual Glasgow School of Yarn knitting and yarn crafts event at The Mackintosh Church, Queen’s Cross. It marks the anniversary of the opening of The Yarn Cake – Glasgow’s knitting cafe and is also part of the Creative Mackintosh Festival.
I’ve been helping to promote the event sending out press releases and tweets while Antje at The Yarn Cake has appeared on STV’s Riverside Show. The Herald have also featured it on their fashion blog.
Here’s details of the event on the What’s on Glasgow page. And look out for the event on STV next Friday…
Here’s Antje on STV Glasgow’s Riverside Show:
This year The Glasgow School of Yarn will offer workshops with expert knitting tutors Jon Ballam-Dunn of Easyknits, Rachel Coopey of Coop Knits and Emily Wessel of Tin Can Knits (pictured at the top of the page). The Yarn Cake team will also be on hand to teach a range of mini tutorials on a wide range of subjects including introductions to crochet, spinning and lace, as well as a chance to learn more about the online knitting community Ravelry.
The marketplace will welcome independent vendors, including Abstract Cat, A Peppermint Penguin, Ginger Twist Studios, Debonnaire and Owl Print Panda. The Yarn Cake stand will also be selling Drops yarns, local yarns including New Lanark and Jamieson & Smith, Ashford Spinning Wheels and supplies, along with a wide range of needles and notions.
Full details of The Glasgow School of Yarn are on The Yarn Cake‘s website.
