Happy New Year!

We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! Also, we hope you managed to have a well-earned rest after the manic Pre-Christmas rush!

 A note for your diaries is the February Craft, Hobby & Stitch Show at the NEC on Sunday the 18th – Tuesday the 20th. We’ll be at our usual stand, J30 and our Demo Stand J32, at the back of the hall to the right. We’d love to see you there so make sure you pay us a visit!!

We’ll be launching 2 new stunning ranges of Opal 4ply Sock Yarn at the show, Colours in Love and Safari. These vibrant ranges are perfect for spring.

We still have stock of the January sale yarn whereby the sale finishes on Wednesday the 31st of January. There’s still time to bag a bargain!

Wishing you all a prosperous New Year!
