Yarn Shop Day 2019

It’s nearly Yarn Shop Day and there’s a huge number of shops taking part – including Knit Nottingham where I suspect plans might include party food and booze!

I’ll be missing out on the local Yarn Shop Day action though because I’ll be at Black Sheep Wools in Culcheth. It’s been a while since my last visit so I’m really looking forward to seeing everyone – come and say hello!

There will be lots happening on the day. Emma Varnam will be holding amigurumi drop-in sessions and sharing her top tips on crocheting characters and Cathy Wright will be running spinning wheel demonstrations throughout the day.

I will be running mini finishing classes including shaping, mattress stitch and picking up stitches – followed by a sewing-up drop-in clinic from 2:30pm until 3:30pm… bring your sewing-up queries and form an orderly queue!

  1. Hi Jem, What is yarn shop day? And where does it take place please?
    I called in to Black Sheep wools a few years ago on my way home from the Lakes! Bit of a detour but well worth it! Xx
