9 & 10 JULY 2022
We are so excited to welcome you back to our treasured in person event.
Our two day celebration of yarn and stitch will take place in the beautiful setting of Uffculme Centre, a former home of the Cadbury family located in leafy Moseley, Birmingham, UK.
So join us for the best yarn festival there is.
We have devised a proudly different format taking our inspiration from far and wide. Our programme of yarn and stitch based activities are designed for everyone to take part in.
Your General Ticket allows you access to our beautiful venue Uffculme which will be packed to the rafters with over 10 fun filled activities.
We carefully select some of the best independent dyers, producers and makers to come and sell their wares in our Marketplace. We try to ensure that there is a varied mix of products available including yarn, fibre, notions, patterns equipment and haberdashery.
Marketplace opening times Saturday 11 - 5pm and Sunday 11 - 4pm
Our First Floor Designer's Showcase is a new strand at this year's festival and is one of the ways we are using our venue differently. It features designers and makers who use yarn and/or stitch in their practices. It gives us a chance to expand our marketplace to include even more choice for you, our audience.
Please note that the First Floor is accessible via stairs and a lift.
Celebrating the Commonwealth Games taking place in Birmingham this summer, the Yarningham Triathlon will feature 3 events - knitted fruit and spoon race, knitted arrow toss and pet agility featuring your own knit, crochet or stitched pet.
Take part as a team (maximum of 3 people) or individually.
Join members of SAAC to collaborate on a multi-media textile artwork that captures the community’s collective conscience.
COMMUNITY STITCH UP will take the form of a mind-map that requires those participating to react to each other’s creations in whatever textile medium they prefer. To get the ball rolling SAAC will start in the middle with the theme community and leave the rest up to fate!
