Celebrate National Yarn Shop Day - April 30th

I’m helping organise the Yarn Shop Day at my local yarn shop in Slaithwaite , Huddersfield. Its only a small shop , but we are extending out in to the gallery space for the day (and possible a few days before too) so that we can showcase crafty makes and more yarns. There is going to be free goody bags , raffle prizes , competitions and mini workshops too.

A really fun day

I see it as a BIG chance to get hand made crafty work seen by the public.

Our fb event page is here -

Official info re Yarn Shop Day is here -

Is anyone else involved? Any Yarn shops near you joining in? If so what are they doing on the day? would love to hear.


Our local Abakhan is joining in. They’re running a teach kids to knit and crochet. Prizes. Tea and cake. Free patterns Tec. I missed last year’s but I’ll definitely be going this year :slight_smile: think I may take my little lady along too.

Here’s the link if there’s anyone in Staffordshire out there interested.
