Yarn Shop Day! – TASTER classes in Knitting & other woolly wonders (FREE)
April 27 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Fabrications is proud to be joining the National ‘Yarn Shop Day‘ campaign initiated by ‘Let’s Knit’ and their sister magazine ‘Let’s get crafting’. The idea behind the campaign is to raise the profile of bricks and mortar knitting shops and to celebrate the value that we bring beyond just selling wool! – personal advice, ideas, expert recommendations, classes, opportunity to socialise and meet people, I could go on!!
