CH 209: EYF Planning and Embroidery Explorations

Helen —  March 2, 2018 — 1 Comment

Edinburgh Yarn Festival is getting closer and closer, and I’m getting more and more excited. On this week’s show I chat about a few (okay, more than a few) vendors I’m really looking forward to visiting. You really need a plan to make the most of the EYF Marketplace! We’re also on a little bit of an embroidery kick here at Curious Handmade Headquarters, with our embroidery workshop last weekend, a special guest teacher at the upcoming Curious Handmade Country House Retreat, and one of my 18 for 2018 projects!

Show Sponsors:

Alongside an eclectic yarn range, which includes Hazel Knits, Icelandic Lopi & CoopKnits, we stock a carefully chosen selection of needles and notions. We’ve also recently launched ‘hand dyed by meadowyarn’, our very own in-house, hand-dyed yarn range. Working in our tiny dye studio, nestled in the Suffolk countryside, we are able to indulge our love of colour, producing complex tonal, kettle-dyed shades across a range of weights and bases. With regular updates our collections evolve and grow, inspired by the landscape and people around us.

AYS is a wool boutique specializing in hand dyed yarns and luxury fibres from around the world. You’ll always find a well curated collection of yarns and colors on the shelves and a friendly knowledgeable staff on hand. Some of our favorite brands include Hedgehog Fibres, SweetGeorgia Yarn, Julie Asselin, Shibui Knits and The Fibre Co. You can find A Yarn Story on Walcot Street in Bath or online at

    I have Susan B. Anderson’s Emmen hat in my library just waiting for the perfect yarn. I would love to make it with Brushwork.
