We are very excited to be heading back down to Farnham this weekend for our third appearance at unravel, a festival of knitting. This year the festival takes place over 3 days and we couldn’t be happier to have a little more time to spend in the marketplace. If you are visiting the festival be sure to stop by the PPQ stand in the Great Hall, where we will have the new Spring Issue for sale and lots of lovely samples on show. Plus you can stock up on back issues 8 through 11 and even pick up some accessories for your newly purchased unravel haul – like our Pom Pom Tote and Project Bags!
If you listened to our latest Pomcast episode then you will have heard the exciting news that we are taking the Pomcast on the road and hosting the International Talks Programme at unravel. Over the weekend Pomcast hosts Lydia and Sophie will chat with unravel’s international guests in 2 live Q&A sessions. Join them on Friday as they chat to Annemor Sundbo about her Mill in Norway and then listen in on Sunday as they quiz Bristol Ivy about her career in knitwear design. We can’t wait to catch up with them both! The talks are free to attend but places are limited. So if you would like to meet Lydia and Sophie, hear about Nordic knitting traditions, or discover Bristol’s chosen spirit animal, be sure to head to the Long Kiln Gallery to grab yourself a spot.
Annemor Sundbo Q& A: Friday 20 February from 2pm, followed by Annemor’s talk Treasures from a Rag Pile
Bristol Ivy Q&A: Sunday 22 February from 1.30pm, followed by Bristol’s talk Knitting Outside the Box
Some other highlights to look out for over the weekend include Anna Maltz’s new pattern collection launch, workshops with Elanor King, Sincerely Louise, East London Knit and not to mention the wonderfully woolly marketplace! If you are planning on picking out some yarn for Pom Pom projects then you will be spoilt for choice as some of our favourite Indie Dyers and Producers will also be at the show, we are especially looking forward to catching up with The Fibre Company, Elisabeth Beverly, and the lovely folks from John Arbon Textiles.
We hope to see you there!
