Almost 400,000 digital knitting and crochet patterns will be available in the festival's "Ravelry Lounge".

68 Marketplace Vendors and 30 workshops will take place, on a festival site spanning over 1,000 square metres.

Woollinn - Ireland's Festival of Yarn is presented by This is Knit: Dublin's multi-award winning destination Yarn Shop. Woollinn will take place in the City North Hotel, Co. Meath, on the 14th - 15th June 2019.

Uncover Ireland's vibrant and welcoming fibre arts scene, and immerse yourself in two days of yarn-based fun - with specialist wares on offer, both from local artisans and from independent makers who are travelling to Woollinn from all around the world. Relax, gather and connect with other crafters in our "Ravelry Lounge" hosted by Jessica Marshall-Forbes, co-founder of the online phenomenon Ravelry.com (a site dedicated to fibre crafts, boasting almost 8 million members worldwide).

With a marketplace and social areas that span over 1000 square meters of floor space, not-to-be missed demonstrations, competitions and give-aways, specialist lectures and workshops by world-renowned designers: what more could a crafter dream of?
