Yarn Shop Day has been going a few years now, at the instigation of Let’s Knit magazine. It’s a day to encourage people to celebrate independent yarn shops in all their glory. We’ve had much fun in previous years thanks to our lovely friends (of both the teacher and customer variety) putting on cool events here. There’s more fun we’ll be having at The Sheep Shop this year.
Saturday 6th May
10am – 1.30pm: A morning class – Louise Tilbrook is teaching Beginner Sock Knitting (which needs to be booked in advance).
2 – 3pm: Closed as usual
3 – 3.30pm: Lola of the amazing sci-fi and fantasy themed Third Vault Yarns will be here to talk about her hand-dyed yarns, where she gets her inspiration from and how that translates into developing and dying colours, and bring samples for you to squish. Please book your (free) space in advance.
3.30 – 5.30pm: Here’s where you can delve in piles of loveliness! Lola is bringing trunks of her yarn here just for the day, including lots of lines we don’t normally stock, so you can take some extra-special beautiful yarn home with you. Just drop in, or you can preorder yarn so exactly what you want will be waiting for you.
Goody bags will go to the first ten people to spend £20 in-store on Yarn Shop Day (excluding classes and gift vouchers), five more are also going to the first five people who booked onto the talk (if you would like to contribute any goodies to show off your business, do get in touch).
Come and enjoy Yarn Shop Day with us, it’s going to be a particularly great day!
