On Saturday 3rd May 2014 over 160 shops throughout the UK took part in the first ever Yarn Shop Day. Organised as a way of encouraging knitters to visit their local bricks-and-mortar store, National Yarn Shop Day is on Saturday 2 May this year and we will be celebrating here at the Made By Ewe Shop in Broadwindsor, Dorset.
There will be on the day discounts on a range of yarns. We are also planning to Yarn Bomb our tree in the courtyard and would love your help.
Here is the tree, not looking very woolly at the moment. We want to fill Mr Tree with pompoms and woolly creations and wrap the trunk in knitted and crocheted squares. I’ve made a start, but my one pom pom looks a bit lonely so far.
Do come and join us on the day and make something woolly – pompom makers and wool provided! Or, if you can’t get here, send us something to the shop, address below.
We will be having a Knit and Natter in the morning too, so hope to see you there!
