Don’t miss out on these exciting offers!
We caught up with Anthony from The Dropped Stitch to find out what’s in store for this year’s Yarn Shop Day on Saturday 27th April!
What exciting activities do you have planned for Yarn Shop Day 2019?
I, personally, will be doing Spinning Wheel Demonstrations throughout the day, showing customers how - on a smaller scale - wool is spun into knitting yarn. Our knit and natter club “The Twiddle Club” will be running all day, with tea and coffee available throughout, for all customers to enjoy. Our biggest activity this year is our Yarn Shop Day Raffle with over £350 worth of prizes available!
Are you offering any special discounts on the day?
The main discount that we are offering on the day is a big one… 20% off everything in our Wool department (excluding handmade items)! This includes all our yarns, needles, accessories, haberdashery and even our Personalisable Knitting Bags. Even our yarns that are already on sale will benefit from this additional discount.
The first 15 paying customers will also receive a goodie bag, with extra freebies inside.
Another thing we will be doing is launching a few new ranges of yarn in the shop. These new yarns will also have the one day discount applied to them, as an introductory offer.
Also, our instore loyalty scheme will receive a boost for the day too, with double loyalty stamps available (2 stamps per £10 spend, usually just 1)
Can you tell us more about your Yarn Shop Day raffle?
Our Yarn Shop Day raffle is the biggest we have ever done. With over £450 worth of prizes, it’s sure to have something for every knitter or crocheter. Prizes range from our in-store Gift Certificates to yarn bundles, yarn kits, and even a lovely set of four hand-quilted cushion covers, kindly donated to us by one of our lovely, regular customers. Tickets are available in the shop for 50p each, or just £2 for a strip of 5 tickets.
What time does the shop open on Yarn Shop Day?
We are open from 9.30am-4pm on the day - however, based on previous Yarn Shop Days, we reckon we will still be open around 6pm, such is the popularity of the day itself!
Tell us more about your shop!
We have been open for 34 years, since 1985. We have been in the same premises all this time, expanding the size of the business as we have gone along. Three generations of our family work here, if you include my two young grand-children who love to help when they visit me at work!
We are based at 113/115 Victoria Road, Portslade, East Sussex, just four miles from Central Brighton. We have plenty of on-street free parking available outside the shop all day.
