They will be joining top designers Louisa Harding, Erika Knight, Sue Stratford, Sasha Kagan, Jenny Watson, Jane Burns, Anniken Allis, Zoe Halstead, Tracey Todhunter, Julie Ferguson, Sarah Hazell Catherine Hirst, Amanda Berry, Lauren O’Farrell and Lynne Rowe.

This week, we are also giving a warm welcome to Spanish spinner Katia, who will also be joining the campaign! It is also supported by Search Press, Sirdar, James C. Brett, West Yorkshire Spinners, Cygnet, Stylecraft and Coats Crafts.

We’ve had 20 new sign-ups to Yarn Shop Day this week, and we can’t wait to see what they get up to! But is your favourite involved?
