Come and see us on Yarn Shop Day!

It’s on Saturday, 27th April 2019

So… what is Yarn Shop Day ? It was launched in 2014 by Let’s Knit magazine and has become the largest retailer event in the knitting and crochet industry. And this year it’s on April 27th.

Its aim is to help ‘bricks and mortar’ stores by encouraging yarn lovers all over the country to visit their local store and discover the great things it can offer, while at the same time enjoying a day of treats, fun and meeting like-minded crafters. Here’s what people are saying about Yarn Shop Day…

A bricks and mortar yarn store is so much more than a place to buy wool and threads; it is a place of common interest, to share ideas and techniques, to learn new skills, and to be a part of a community of like-minded people who won’t judge you for the size of your stash! Yarn Shop Day serves to highlight and celebrate the importance of your local store and crafting community, which you may be yet to discover!
