About McAree Festival Knit Night

For one night only, McAree Brothers are proud to present a haven from the hubbub of the Edinburgh Fringe for performers and locals alike. Bring along your knitting, crochet, and works-in-progress, or treat yourself to a new project from our extensive range of yarns and patterns, and join us for an evening of knitting, crocheting, chatting, and shopping.

Complimentary refreshments will be provided in-store and the first 30 people to arrive will receive a free ‘Fringe Survival’ kit, featuring knitting and crochet goodies and an exclusive, festival-inspired pattern.

Date: Thursday 17th August, 5.00 - 8.00 pm

Venue: McAree Brothers, 19 Howe Street, New Town, Edinburgh EH3 6TE

FREE ENTRY. To reserve a place, please email sales@mcadirect.com

Access: The shop is all on one level, but there are two small steps up to it from street-level.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for McAree Festival Knit Night are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
