Loch Ness Knit Fest is now in it’s 3rd year and our team are tangled up in all the woolly madness behind the scenes as we prepare for what’s set to be the best one yet!

We might consider ourselves event experts but prior to the Loch Ness Knit Fest project, none of the Planit Scotland team had much experience in the craft industry. So it’s safe to say it’s been a steep learning curve. But one thing we’ve been bowled over by is the passion and enthusiasm from the yarn-mad folk we’ve come across. They’ve steered us in the right direction and helped shape Loch Ness Knit Fest for future success. We’re so grateful for the help to date and really enjoy working with you to produce an inspiring event on the Scottish stage.

So whether you’re a fully fledged knitter, aspiring crafter or simply intrigued to find out more, we encourage you to Join us in the heart of Inverness, 19th-21st October 2018. You’ll see Inverness Leisure Centre as an awesome Loch Ness Knit Fest hub. There’s a massive programme of events includes 40+ workshops and classes, main stage entertainment, crafting village and marketplace with over 60 sellers!

In addition to the array of crafting delights you can also enjoy a ceilidh with renowned fiddle supergroup ‘Blazin Fiddles’, tuck into a highland feast, take a cruise on Loch Ness and much more.

The 2017 festival attracted over 1500 visitors and we’re shooting for even more this year. One significant development is that we’ve now got travel agents working with us who’ve designed unique travel packages to bring a mass of international guests to our festival. Are you ready to help us give them a really memorable Highland experience? Let’s celebrate the rich crafting traditions that have been passed down the generations and show the world what Scotland is made of (with lots of wool)!
