Scrumptious new yarn!

Posted by on Feb 1, 2012 | 0 comments

Hello again everyone! There’s lots of gorgeous Spring and Summer yarn arriving to include our  first range from Noro…and the colours are truly inspiring.  Rowan’s stunning range is also in store with a beautiful choice from a complimentary pattern base. Rico have once again not failed to deliver on their ability to create quality driven products with rich colours and lovely textures at affordable prices. And of course there’s an array of natural Summer cottons, linens and blended yarns. Please feel free to call by, browse and absorb! It’s not feeling as though Winter’s over just yet, so there’s still time to create that comforting chunky sweater, knit the aran you always wanted or keep cosy in a hand made hat, scalf or gloves that everyone admires! Drop by, be inspired with our patterns, choose the yarn and create…we’ll always help you if needed! The first ‘Learn to Knit’ course went really well with another scheduled for Sunday 26th February, please call or email the shop for finer details. The last remaining place is available on the ‘Learn to Crochet’ course this Sunday, so hurry and book yourself on! Further crochet workshops are planned for Sunday March 4th and Sunday 1st April. Finally, ‘Yarn’ will have a ‘drop in stitch’ time  between 2pm and 4pm on Thursday afternoons to compliment our very successful ‘knit night’ in the Woodman inn and absorb knit club members from the Bridport Art Centre. We look forward to seeing you soon and happy knitting! With very best wishes Rosie    ...

Christmas wish list?!

Hello again! I hope you’re all beginning to feel festive! Yarn just wanted to remind you that there’s something in the shop for all knitters and those who crochet and that Christmas is about you too! There are some gorgeous kits, gift ideas and accessories that your family, friends and loved ones could treat you to! A gentle hint or two, however, may be needed!! ‘Knit night’ on Tuesday’s until 8pm is growing. The group is about sharing ideas, ‘trouble shooting’ and generally getting together over a coffee and a cake on chilly winter evenings. It’s informal and friendly so please feel free to join us. We’re open until 9pm on Wednesday 8th December as part of Bridport’s Christmas festivities, so we look forward to seeing you…seasonal liquid refreshment will be available. Interest in the initial ‘beginners learn to knit’ workshop is very positive and places ar limited so please call into the shop or email info@bridportyarn.co.uk for more information, preferably by the middle of December. Many thanks once again for your support and enthusiasm. We hope to continue to inspire you…! See you soon...
