This afternoon sees me researching family & motorhome friendly campsites, in preparation for us hitting the road in a few weeks to tour the UK. The aim is to have a family holiday combined with me visiting as many yarn shops & knitting events as possible, a kinda best of both worlds scenario :)

Here's the current list of confirmed events so far:


Fibre & Clay, 17th & 18th July 2010
Cheshire, UK

A weekend of workshops at the Fibre + Clay store, contact the store for more details.

Baa Ram Ewe, 22nd July 2010
Leeds, UK

A visit to the Baa Ram Ewe's weekly knit night for book singing & trunk show.

Knit Nation, 29th - 31st July 2010
London, UK

Book signing & trunk show. More information about the event can be found here.


Knit Camp, 9th - 13th August 2010
Stirling, Scotland, UK

Numerous workshops and activities. More information about the event can be found here.


UK Ravelry Day, 13th - 14th August 2010
Stirling, Scotland, UK

IKnit Weekender, 10th & 11th September 2010
London, UK

I'll be keeping the Events page updated as new destinations are confirmed.


I'm still talking to a few more yarn shops, but if you'd like to have me visit your LYS or knitting group please share the details! We can't promise to make every event as we will be travelling in Barp (the smaller bus - the double decker will stay put in Italy) as a family and so we're trying to group locations and times together, to keep travel simple and cost effective. There's certainly space for a few more stops, so I'd love to hear your suggestions (hint: an excuse to visit the west country would be much appreciated)

My workshop at Fibre and Clay will be the first stop of the tour, and the IKnit Weekender will be the last. The only event we're not heading for in the bus is KnitCamp, as Scotland is a little too far to drive and would cost way, way more than a train journey. Besides, as much as they'd like to visit Scotland, the boys are probably best staying with family that week rather than fending for themselves in unknown territory.

It's going to be busy, but fun too!
