Sustainability in Production
 

Talk and Trunk Show: Sustainability in Production with Jonny King

We talk a lot about sustainability and the environmental impacts of yarn production. But what does this 'sustainability' mean, what does it entail when coming to creating our much loved strands of joy, and how can we as consumers make sure our yarns are good for the planet?

Join us for the day with Jonny King of Garthenor Organic, who will visit our shop holding a talk about all the wonders of Garthenor and how they are breaking ground as a sustainable yarn producer. There is of course time to answer all the questions you might have, and we have a wonderful selection of designs and yarns for you to squish and fondle. Beverages and light snacks at hand.

Since joining Garthenor Organic in 2017, Jonny has advocated sustainable, transparent production through strong relationships with farmers, mills and dyehouses, striving for growth in the UK organic textile industry. With a background in design, he has overseen the transformation to a modern, innovative brand at the forefront of the sustainable yarn movement.

Garthenor's mission is simple: to make only 100% certified organic yarn without compromise, ever. Totally traceable, completely climate positive and outstandingly organic. They were the first company in the world to make yarn that was certified organic from sheep to shelf, and they’ve never stopped being planet-loving trailblazers.


When: Saturday February 11th 2023, Talk – 13:00pm Trunk Show - 14:00-17:00pm
Fee: £3

Learn How to Crochet Virtual Course

iKnit7 with Friends – Starter Series with Aoibhe Ní : Zero to Crochet

One of the most important things we do as yarns shops is we teach. We introduce people to the wonderful world of wool! Nothing beats the expression on the face of someone where it just 'clicked', they solved the code, they get it! Isolation and social distancing prevents us from doing our usual Learn How to Crochet Workshops for the foreseeable future. It is something we all miss and a challenge that has been thoroughly discussed between my friends and myself at iKnit7, how can we offer the best tutoring possible for beginner crocheters without physically bringing them into the shops?

Together with renowned designer Aoibhe Ní and online tutor extraordinaire Carol Feller, we have developed an online course specifically with the beginner crocheter in mind. Whether you are completely new to crochet, or you were once taught back in the day and are in need of a refresher, or maybe you are looking for the ultimate 'all in one' gift to someone wanting to learn, the Stolen Stitches Starter Series: From Zero to Crochet is exactly what you are looking for.

Taking you from the very basic anatomy of a stitch, the different qualities of yarn and their weights, hooks and their sizes, different stitches and techniques – you name it … at the end of this course you will have finished three projects, including your first pair of mittens, a granny square and a decorative flower, and you can most definitely call yourself a crocheter! Best of it all, everything comes neatly wrapped up in one package with materials included, you can work through the whole course in your own pace, in the safety of your home.

Zero to Crochet is a power-packed workshop series that takes you by the hand from utter crochet novice right the way through to completing three projects. Conquer crochet basics as you learn the lingo and technical know-how of everything from wool, yarn and the anatomy of a stitch. Develop your unique eye and keen set of skills that will leave you with all the skills you need to tackle your next crochet adventure. Time isn't a factor as we developed this course to be consumed in whatever stolen moments you can find. Guidance from a professional and experienced teacher with direct communication established through the course platform, no questions are too stupid to be asked.

Iknit7 is a collaboration by seven unique yarn shops: Emily foulds, Ginger Twist Studio, Wild and Woolly, Knit with attitude, This is Knit, Tribe Yarns and A Yarn Story. To learn more visit iKnit7.com
