My first glimpse of the bunting and I got all emotional. My three little pieces are in there somewhere on the other side of the world...
It looks gorgeous.
I hope you reaped your rewards Lovely Lucy.
Can't wait to read on. Missed it all cause I was on some well-needed holidays.
So nice to come back to this!

Congratulations to all of you who dreamed up Yarndale! It was A-mazing and so impressive for a 'first time event'. Well done, I loved every minute. And Skipton - what a lovely place :-)

Well done to you and all the others who clearly worked so hard to organise Yarndale, we got there early on Saturday and spent the day oohing and aahhing over all the wonderful stands, the yarn bombing ( love your ducks! )and even got chance to say hello to you. Bet your head was spinning by the end of the weekend, put your feet up with a cuppa and cake xx

We paid a visit to" Yarndale Town" on Saturday, it was an organised trip with not enough time to pop in and say hello; but I did see your yellow ducklings on the swing bridge as we went through on the canal boat. It was lovely to see the places you blog about. You are right it is a beautiful part of the country.


Wow! It's all over now. Time to relax, I'd say.


LOVE the bunting! It looks wonderful - all the hard work is paying off. Looking forward to reading about how Yarndale went...


The bunting looks wonderful. So much hard work must go into setting up the Yarndale event but from the photos on your blog and others that I read It is certainly worth it. I would really love to come along to the next one!

I was so pleased to find one of my donated triangle buntings. Well my daugher's friend found it, she's called Alexa. Well spotted Alexa quite a feat considering there were 5 miles of bunting.

Hello Lucy,
I bet you are shattered!!!
We came to yarndale on Saturday and it was absolutely fantastic. Loved every minute of it.I have been to woolfest twice and love that too but think Yarndale was much more colourful and fun.
I didn't say hello as you were talking to someone and I'm really sorry . I saw you last year at Harrogate stitch show.Anyway take a well earned break( as much as possible with small children) we cant wait for next year. Love Sue xxx


great job!! good luck from italy!!!


I just want to say we had an amazing time at Yarndale this weekend. I even found my bunting proudly hanging with the others! It looked amazing. I visited the studio and it felt like an outer body experience. I felt like I had stepped into blog land!!! I saw you in the knit and knatter, but didn't get chance to say hello. I loved Yarndale. I will be blogging about it and I am waiting for your next blog update. Everyone did a fab job. THANK YOU. p.s loved the trip on the Yarndale bus!!!


Lucy the whole Yarndale event was totally totally awesome .... I had the best few days in Skipton arriving with hubby on Thursday evening and we walked through the Park seeing the lamposts and trees bombed. He delivered me to Coopers for knit and knatter on Friday morning, where I met Tracy and the other knitting ladies and visited The Studio. On Saturday morning we joined in the 5k Parkrun event around Aireville Park. We then visited Yarndale which was totally fantastic where I bought a programme armed with patterns, bought yarn and actually came and said hi to you. I won the raffle that Tracy was running and have a hare coming to live with me. It was the best time ever
Lucy and thank you and all the team for such a lovely time. I have taken lots and lots of photos and am going to make a photo book of my glorious Yarndale 2013 weekend. May there be may more .... lots of love and hugs Joy xx


well lucy,what can I say wow ,wow,wow,!!!! I cant believe what a great show it was,with great stalls and all so organised,lovely to meet you again ,and cant wait until next year !!! thanks Lucy xxxx


My three friends and I had the best day at Yarndale!! Thank you Lucy - for inspiring us, for the brilliant blog and for all your hard work (and to everyone else who was part of Yarndale). It was a huge success - just looking forward to next year now.

Had an amazing day yesterday thank you to you and all those involved. I keep looking and all the fab yarn I bought! See you next year?.. X

Seaweed & Raine

How Exciting! If I were in the UK I would HAVE to pop in and visit a while. I hope you have a most tremendous time.


Pat yourself on the back for all your hard work :) I have been following on FB for a while and didn't realise just how much I have missed your blog. I will be back!! and far more often, very remiss of me :)

Carmen Lorann

I have been following Yarndale through the hash tag #yarndale on Instagram...everything looks amazing!! I am amused by the amount of people that are too shy to meet you!! I guess I would be star struck too :-D. Congratulations to an awesome job that you and the team did on Yarndale...wish I could see it in person!!

Very sadly we could not get near, we travelled 120 miles and could not park. Stewards directed us to town centre car parks which were all full because of things going on in the town. Even so we would then have had extra costs to park when ample free parking had been advertised. I have to say we are very disappointed today, obviously venue and parking not big enough for something I (and many others in the same boat) had been looking forward to for a long time. :(


Dearest Lucy. Yarndale today was absolutely fab! Well worth the 5 hour journey and overnight stay. So many Yarnaholics and plenty of fondle-fodder. And it was lovely to meet you. Keep smiling through tomorrow. Love from 'the brooch on the coat' girl.
