Crave Culture ⎪Edinburgh Yarn Fest 2019

CRAVE YARN and YARN CULTURE are combining forces for something truly fantastic this spring… Something outrageously adventurous… Something not to be missed. We’re hopping the pond to attend the 2019 Edinburgh Yarn Festival! You’re invited to come with us. We’ll spend four days in a yarn frenzy at one of Europe’s premier fiber festivals. Then we’ll head out of the city to explore Scotland itself, traveling along the coast and up into the famous Scottish Highlands. The week’s itinerary is a blend of organized events, optional activities, and free time. It’s going to be an amazing experience. 

Highlights of the trip include 

  • Four nights in Edinburgh with access to the market, activities, and workshops at the Edinburgh Yarn Festival
  • Exclusive CRAVE CULTURE evening events with invited designers and fiber folk
  • Optional walking tour of the Royal Mile, hosted tour of the National Museum of Scotland and full day exploring Glasgow. (If you find yourself in need of a little break from yarn.)  
  • Private retreat and workshops at the historic Kinblethmont House
  • three days exploring the landscape, villages, artisans, historic architecture and distilleries of the Scottish Highlands
