About this event

Yarn Shop Day is a celebration of local yarn shops and we have lots to offer you. The first four events need to be booked in advance. Tickets are £5 per event, which you’ll get back as a £5 voucher to spend when you choose. Please pop in or call 01223 311268.

The Design Process: 10.15 - 10.45am
Crochet and knitting pattern designer Joanne Scrace talks about her design process and answers questions about anything from the maths behind the design to how to get started as a designer. Joanne is published in numerous magazines, designs for yarn companies and is cofounder of design house The Crochet Project.

Tatting: 11 - 11.30am
The wonderful Angela Thomas will demonstrate tatting, a technique for making lace using shuttles. She'll show you how it works and you'll be able to have a go.

An Introduction to Ravelry: 11.45am - 12.15pm
Ravelry is a website that is life-changing for knitters and crocheters, but it has so much to offer it can be a bit intimidating. The lovely Louise Tilbrook will walk you through using it so you can come away confident.

Macrame: 12.30 - 1pm
Alice Leadbeter has kindly offered to demonstrate the knotted craft that is macramé and you'll be able to have a go.

The Shawl Project book signing: 1.15 - 1.45pm
A book of six crochet shawl designs and design principles from Joanne Scrace and Kat Goldin, suitable for beginner to advanced crocheters. Knit Now Magazine even bucked its knitting focus to review it, writing "...intricate, beautiful and wearable. Joanne has created a collection of patterns that showcases what crochet can really achieve." Joanne will be signing copies. They can be bought on the day (£12) but to be sure of your copy they are available for preorder now, please let me know if you'd like a special message inside.
