Celebrate National Yarn Shop Day - April 30th

(sandranesbitt) #1

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.
