Yarn Shop Day is promoted widely in market leading knitting, crochet and general craft titles, both in print and on social media. Coverage in national and regional press has also proved very effective in generating coverage for this event.


Yarn Shop Day was launched in 2014 by Let’s Knit, the UK’s bestselling knitting magazine. The event enjoys prime coverage in both this title and its bestselling sister magazine LGC Knitting & Crochet, through dedicated features and also via blog posts and social media promotion. This impressive reach is extended to include the entire craft portfolio of Aceville Publications, featuring such market leading titles as Crafts Beautiful and Sew, as well as in its trade title Craft Business. Newsletters promoting Yarn Shop Day are sent out to a database of over 200,000 crafters.
