Me & my two girls Evie (14) & Thea (10) had a wonderful day full of laughter, love and squeels of yarny joy. Butterflies and bags were purchased. We ticked off the Attic24 blankets I've done and the ones they want me to do. Your Attic24 banner was fab (although the teen rolled her eyes at me when I squeeled that I'd followed you making it on your blog!). The girls came home with felting stuff. A wonderful day. Thank you for helping us make some treasured memories. We are already looking forward to next year. X


Congratulations on another successful Yarndale to you and your fellow hard working organisers. Your banner looks wonderful and I love how you have presented the butterflies. xx Susan

Lovely Lucy! I adore you! Love all the work you put into this. The butterfly exhibit is brilliant, just like you. xx


Hi Lucy,

Wow, that look a-ma-zing. I have seen so much from the yarndale festival that I'm so sad I wasn't there. It is sort of my bucket list thing to go to once, maybe next year. Hopefully,for the first time by myself with a friend, I will travel to the UK to visit London. So maybe next year I will be ready to go haha.
I love all the butterflies, they look so amazing. A butterfly has now a special meaning to me. My little brother died in a car accident just over a month ago and I crocheted butterflies. 1 for him, and one for every one of us who are left behind. It is sort of comforting that I got something to sent with him and also got one myself so. They are special to me from now on.
It all looks amazing and I hope to visit yarndale next year.

Sweet greetings from the Netherlands,


Looks like another successful weekend! I loved my two visits and will come back sometime. X

This year I ordered the pen and bag, almost made a butterfly (stuck on mandalas, no 10), next year I'd like my visit to UK to coincide with Yarndale. Loving from afar😍

Ingrid Meecham

My daughter and I had a wonderful time, my only complaint - too much to see! Next time we’ll try to come on both days. Thanks to you and your team for a fabulous show.💜💜💜

Looks like another FAB year of it! Maybe someday I'll make it over the pond there. Congrats to all!xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Thank you from one Dorset born ex pat to another, for a lovely detailed and colourful account of Yarndale 2018 , I follow your blog although I tend to be a knitter as I cannot crochet ... or so I thought !!! I followed some links and found a You tube demonstration of a simple flower, and have been able to make two successfully ( I am so proud of myself ) - they now adorn a baby blanket I have been knitting. I am excited to look out for next years Yarndale Community project and to be brave enough to have a go. Hoping to see you in person at Yarndale 2019 too. Countdown has started - can't wait .
Keep up the enthusiasm and colourful


Thank you! For this very detailed account of the weekend, I feel as I was there <3 I'm very happy to have participated with butterflies and I remember making a few of those triangles for the buntings too! I love that you still have them and display them <3 I'll be so happy to participate again next year with whatever I can! Big thankyou from Sweden <3


What a lovely, cheerful and colourful event! Thanks for letting those of us who couldn't be there join in the fun through your blog. I just love the framed and labeled butterflies (and all the others that fluttered home with visitors).


Oh Lucy we were lucky to visit for our 2nd year. We coincided a weekend in Yorkshire to do so. We’re from just down the motorway in London.

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves with all the crafty goodness. I came away with a few delights and a garment to look forward to from Sophie’s Wild Woollens. Even started knitting a Christmas present on our return journey.

This year we wandered down to the town via the park and canal. So many yarny delights to view along the way. We travelled back on the old route master, a delight for my hubby who used to drive them.

Lucy I have to say thank you. You’re blog gives so much pleasure and you’ve introduced me to things I wouldn’t otherwise have known about and some of those have been shared further. This year I’ve been enjoying my Craftpod subscription, learnt about from you. On my commute last week I was stitching a Dropcloth sampler brought from Beyond Measure, at Yarndale. Another commuter started speaking to me saying she’d love to embroider. There was me sharing the delights of Yarndale, Beyond Measure, Craftpod and your blog etc. Out came her phone to get all the info. She loved the idea of it being in the sheep mart. She got off saying she’d also be sharing the info with her mum who’d love all of this. See the domino affect.

Thank you and thank you and your fellow crafters for setting up Yarndale. It really is like no other yarny festivals I’ve ever visited.

Today I think I’ll wear my Yarndale butterfly. I wonder if it leads to further conversations.

Such hard work for you all but sooooo much appreciated by us!
I was lucky to be able to visit last year and loved it! Thank you so very much. What a great ‘invention’.

My daughter and I had a wonderful day at Yarndale traveling from the Isle of Man to visit! Sadly we didn’t get to speak to you this year as every time we came to say hello , you were surrounded by enthusiastic fans!! However we had a great time and would like to thank everyone who organizes this marvelous event! My daughter had one of her butterflies on your board so thanks for that! See you next year!


Lovely catch up post on your Yarndale! All those butterflies are just adorable!!! And of course you were too busy to snap photos. Ha ha ha! I wouldn't expect anything else. Next time you should do a shout out to collect some photos other people has taken and make a collage filled blog post after. We can never get enough eye candy from this magical place. Well done Lucy & your crew! Fantastic as always.

*C*O*N*G*R*A*T*U*L*A*T*I*O*N*S*!* on this fabulous 2018 year of your wonderful Yarndale! It was so neat to see all the great additions from year to year. I would love to see it someday but it's doubtful being on the other side of the world and all. But thank you for sharing it with those of us who can't be there. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

What a great post, what a lot of work Lucy sorting the butterflies, I found mine, page 5, and have printed it out to join my Yarndale scrapbook, you never know I may get there one day all the way from NZ !! Just loving the videos etc, i can feel the happy atmosphere. Thankyou again. Carolyn.

Linda Betts

Lucy, thank you for such a fun armchair visit to Yarndale! Wish I could have flown there with my butterflies........but I am so proud to have found one displayed on your board #4. My tiny butterfly all the way from Texas on display at Yarndale! What an honor to everyone who participated to be recognized in this way! Such a labor of love for you to do this. Thank you. I’m pretty sure that I also recognized at least one large green one on your table amongst all the other green ones. This was a beautiful to present a true kaleidoscope of color.
My bucket list trip to England must happen at Yarndale time some day.

Oh my gosh I am jealous Christine! I’m in Australia too and was just staring at all these beautiful photos thinking how amazing it would be to attend Yarndale! I love the yarnbombing and I’m so glad you didn’t let the yarn burglars get you down Lucy - how amazing is the bunting and those butterflies! Congratulations on such a wonderful event! Megan ☺️

Christine Kohli

Thank you Lucy, it was so lovely to meet you, having traveled from Western Australia and then drive up to Yorkshire from Kent, boy oh boy was it worth it, such an amazing festival, so many amazing memories, and I have a treasured photo of you and I. Now to start using all the lovely yarn I bought 💕
