I can’t believe there’s less than a week to go until Love Your Yarn Shop Day, where has the time gone! I’ve been busy knitting up a storm and blocking plenty of samples to inspire you as well as organising a few special events to help the day go with a bang. In case you haven’t come across it before, Yarn Shop Day is a special event in celebration of local yarn shops organised by the lovely people at Let’s Knit Magazine. This is the second year of the event and we’re all hoping it will be bigger and better than ever.
So, what have we got going on to tempt you?
Pop Up Stalls
If our own substantial range of yarn and fibre isn’t enough, we are also being joined by Moira from Cashmered with her sumptuous cashmere yarn plus stylish patterns for adults and children. I can’t wait to have a good squish, I love the luxury and softness of cashmere.`We also have Katie, our youngest Stitch and Sip regular and already an incredibly talented crocheter with her collection of amigurumi and homewares. They’re all her own designs so this is a great chance to support a future star in the making.
All day Stitch and Sip
Bring along your works in progress and join us for a knit, crochet and natter. Come all day or drop in whenever suits you. We’ll be providing tea and coffee and I might even be able to magic up some cake!
Milla Mia Sample Garments
I’ve made no secret of my love for Milla Mia, their gorgeous yarn and carefully selected patterns are a perfect combination. They are kindly supplying us with a selection of sample garments for both adults and children that will be available to touch and try on. This is a great opportunity to see a wide range of their garments in one place. If you’ve been meaning to knit your first garment, this could be just the thing to inspire you to get started.
If this isn’t enough to tempt you, we will also be offering 20% off all product purchases on the day.
That’s 20% off the yarn for your new jumper, 20% off the fabric for your new summer dress or 20% off a new set of needles! This is the one day of the year that we offer such a generous store wide offer so be sure to come and visit us and take advantage of it.
