Indie Burgh Craft Crawl

Kathy’s Knits, Broughton Street, Edinburgh
on 17 June 2017.

Come and sample the amazing yarns and other items from Lindsay Roberts, aka The Border Tart at The Indie Burgh Craft Crawl on 17 June at Kathy’s Knits.

Lindsay uses natural indigo to dye a wide range of natural fibre yarns used by knitters, crocheters and weavers. Some she overdyes with acid dyes to produce a range of complementary shades.

She also indigo dyes wool locks, vintage blanket pieces, pre-felt, silk hankies and wool batts for textile makers. Sari silk offcuts and buttons galore are also BorderTart staples.

Indie Burgh Craft Crawl 2017

Indie Burgh Craft Crawl

Various Locations across Edinburgh

Following the success of the Indie Burgh Yarn Crawl over the last three years, the event has been expanded this year, beyond the three yarn stores, Ginger Twist Studio, Kathy’s Knits and Be Inspired Fibres.

See “Crafty Destinations” for the details (Click for larger version). Join the crafting community for a bit of fun, supporting local shops and makers! Plan your route round the City with who you like and in your own time. Each shop validation on your “Craft Passport” counts as a raffle entry when you reach Hemma at the end, where there is a pop-up market, great food, and where the after-party carries on.

In addition, Kathy’s Knits has The Border Tart in situ throughout the day with her specialist indigo yarns and other items for sale.
