Here at Knit with attitude we're proud to be joining the National 'Love your yarn shop' campain, and we can't wait to welcome you all to Yarn Shop Day May 3rd, a day of celebrating all things woolly!!! The campaign is initiated by leading UK publication Let's Knit, editor Sarah Neil says: “Love Your Yarn Shop is designed to remind consumers of the value of their local wool store. With the growth of the internet we have far more shopping opportunities than ever before, but when it comes to knitting there’s no substitute for seeing and touching the yarn, and for having the advice of experienced knitters on hand. Yarn shops provide all this and more; they are sources of great inspiration and often a community hub. It’s been a tough time for the high street recently so we’re encouraging consumers to support these shops and enjoy all that they have to offer.” What is 'Yarn Shop Day'? Yarn Shop Day is a day for showing your yarn shop some love, but it is also an opportunity for the yarn shops to show how much this love is appreciated. At Knit with attitude we are setting up free drop-in arm knitting workshops throughout the day, we are offering a 10% discount both online and in store, AND our knitting and crochet experts are all ready to tackle any yarn emergency on the day. Hope to see you all there! Yarn Shop Day
