Edinburgh Yarnfest Trip March 14- March 21 2018
The Edinburgh Yarnfest marketplace will be open from Thursday March 15 through Saturday March 17th. There are always numerous activities during the Yarnfest that you will be able to sign up for through their website. The amount of time that you spend there is at your discretion.
There are numerous day trips around all of Scotland that you can take on your own. I will post more information later.
Right now it looks like the cost of this trip will come in under $1700 including insurance. Shelly Cronin from Pioneer Valley Travel is finalizing details and will have the number for us in a few days. In the meantime if you are interested in coming with us, call Linda at 413 586 4331 and get your name on the list or ask any questions.
· Flight from Bradley International on Norwegian Air (non-stop, no changing planes in Dublin, no missed flights, no missing people!)
Travel to and from Bradley will be on your own at this time. Arrangements can be made if everyone wants to go on a bus.
