Get excited about Yarn Shop Day 2019!
For us knitters and fibre-craft fans, there is nowhere on the high street more inspiring than a yarn shop. At Let’s Knit, we know bricks and mortar retailers are a vitally important part of the industry, and so, in 2014, along with our sister title Let’s Get Crafting, we launched our Love Your Yarn Shop campaign. Every year we celebrate with a dedicated Yarn Shop Day and as our sixth annual event is taking place on Saturday 27th April!
The fabulous yarn shops!
Where would we be without our bricks and more yarn shops? Across England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland, over 130 shops have signed up to take part in this year’s Yarn Shop Day and we can’t wait for the celebrations to start! Find your nearest participating store in our handy online yarn shop directory.
Exclusive patterns to knit…
We’ve provided each participating store with a series of exclusive patterns, including Lucinda Ganderton’s sensational Funky Blanket, Lynne Rowe’s colourful Sammy the Sausage Dog and Sachiyo Ishii’s super cute Tiny Turtle family. Get all your yarn and materials in store on the day!
Bubbles the whale is the cutest marine mammal we’ve seen in a long time and you can get the exclusive pattern in your local store.
