Yarn Shop Day 2017 - Is your local yarn shop getting involved?

Our exclusive guide to the most exciting event of the year

With just over five weeks to go until Yarn Shop Day 2017, local retailers have been signing up all over the country and preparing everything for the 6th May so that you yarn enthusiasts have the best day possible in their stores!

In just over five weeks time, knitting shops all over the country will be hosting special events including workshops, giving away goodie bags, offering big discounts, hosting pop-up shops and giving FREE patterns to customers who pay them a visit on the day.

Highlighting all that is great about your local yarn stockist, Yarn Shop Day will showcase the best talent across the UK and Southern Ireland. Last year’s event saw almost 200 shops take part and this year we are cranking it up another gear for the best Yarn Shop Day EVER.
