A yarn shop is more than just a shop, it's a community, a knowledge bank, a crafty hub.

We want to show you what we've got!

WHAT IS A LOCAL YARN SHOP?

  • A community
  • A craft hub
  • A meeting place for customers who have become friends
  • A tactile experience, feeling your raw materials, understanding their journey appreciating the methods used to create such fibres.
  • A place for advice, and project help – often free of charge
  • A place of wonder for the younger generations, essential to plant an interest in crafting.
  • A place to create, attend workshops, manage mental health issues, talk, laugh and sometimes cry.
  • They have a heart and a soul, and they HAVE to remain on our streets.

WITHOUT CUSTOMERS WE ARE NOTHING.

And we treasure every single one. During October 2018 we ran a treasure hunt with limited edition badges at each of our participating yarn shops - those with badges left are shown with white flags on the map. Join the mailing list for details of future campaigns!
