Welcome to our February Newsletter.

We can’t believe how quickly this year so far seems to be going. It’s time already for the annual Stitches & Hobbycraft Show at the NEC, Birmingham 18h – 20th of February. As usual, we’ll be in our normal spot at the back right hand corner with two stands opposite each other. These are J32 (Viridian) and Viridian’s Demo Den on stand J30 where the lovely Martha will be demonstrating various products – do come and see us! Why not visit us first and work your way back to the entrance… you’ll probably beat the crowds 😉

We will be launching 4 fantastic new ranges of sock yarn from Opal at the NEC – 4 ply “Colours in Love”, “Safari”, “Style” and “Sport” – these will all be part of our ‘show deal’. See website www.viridianyarn.com for shades or better still visit our stand to hear about our yarntastic deal!

We’ll start dispatching these ranges from the 21st of February so you still have a little time to have a look on our website and choose your favourites, it’s a tough one as they’re all wonderful ranges J

We have some Eucalan news: from Thursday the 1st of March until Friday the 29th of March we will be offering 10% discount for the whole of our Eucalan range, with the arrival of spring there’s no better time to stock up on Eucalan!

Just a reminder that the office will be closed on Monday 19th and Tuesday 20th of Feb.  Feel free to email us but we may not reply until we return to the office. Please don’t leave a message on our phone as we don’t get them. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

We look forward to seeing you at Stitches!
