Yarn Shop Day Yarnbomb

Be the first people to get involved in a summer-long project to jazz up Cambridge with some public art with a difference: a spectacular long-lasting flower display. Imagine hundreds, nay thousands of handmade flowers together, in shades of purple and blue. Associated activities around the display will raise awareness and funds for Cambridge Rape Crisis.

Saturday 30th April, 10am – 1pm at The Sheep Shop

You’ll need some DK or aran yarn in shades of bright purple or deep blue, and some yellow, with hook or needle size to match. Yarnbombers get 10% off on Yarn Shop Day when they buy suitable supplies here.

Join the Flower power yarnbomb group to be a well-informed flower power yarnbomber.

The Night Factory video

Back in the summer, lovely folks Josh and Michael from Cambridge film production company The Night Factory came to make a promotional video for the shop.  Thank you to Friday morning knitting group for starring in it, alongside our wonderful yarns.  Because it was high summer, our shelves were not quite as full of wool as they usually are – there would be even more at other times of the year!  Thank you The Night Factory – isn’t it cool backing music?  They made it.
