Wow hasn't this year gone fast as I'm sat writing this we have less than two weeks until the big move and 3 weeks until Yarn Shop Day.
As many of you know Yarn Shop Day (YSD) is my favourite day of the year and this year it will be bigger and better than ever before. Not only will we be celebrating YSD we will also be holding the grand opening of our new shop. We are also getting a special visitor from Let's Knit to join in the celebrations.
Just in case you have missed it we are moving to 46 Upper Kirkgate on the Easter weekend and will be reopening on Saturday 27th April for Yarn Shop Day. The new shop is just down from Boots the Chemist just look for the bright pink shop front, you can't miss it.
The current shop will close at 12 noon on Saturday April 20th, the shop will then be packed up and moved and we will be reopening on Saturday April 27th at 9 am at 46 Upper Kirkgate. So please don't get caught out make sure you stock up before we move, we won't be posting orders that week either it's going to take more than a few days to get sorted out.
Thanks to our suppliers Sirdar, Stylecraft, King Cole, Rico, Art Yarns and GMC we have a bumper prize draw for YSD. We have the yarn hamper as first prize and then there are an additional six prizes to be one. All you need to do is spend £20 or more in the shop between now and the end of YSD and we will enter you in the raffle. Sorry online customers but this one is strictly for shop customers.
YSD is all about celebrating our Local Yarn Shop, it's a day when the community comes together and celebrates all things woolly. After the grand opening we will have a day filled with yarn, cake and plenty of nattering. From 1 pm our annual game of yarn bingo will commence as always we will be playing for balls of wool. So if you are free please come down and join us there will be 15% of full price stock on the day you just need to show your invite to get the discount (there's a pile of them in the shop if you haven't got one yet).
Also we will have a host of new yarns including West Yorkshire Spinners Winwick collection, West Yorkshire Spinners Colour Lab, new baby yarns from Sirdar and new socks yarns. There will also be needle felting supplies and a huge range of haberdashery and quilting supplies.
So if you are free please come down and join us, your welcome to stay all day if you want the tea urn will be on all day.
