This Saturday (May 3rd, 2014), will see independent yarn shops across the UK celebrating Love Your Yarn Shop Day, organised by Let’s Knit Magazine.

The campaign aims to celebrate bricks and mortar stores which provide hubs of creativity for thousands of knitters and crochet enthusiasts in villages, towns and cities up and down the country.

Baa Baa Brighouse, an online hand knit and Yorkshire yarn store, is also lending its support to the campaign as ultimately our aim is to provide a physical shop for our customers and local community.

In the meantime, we will be out and about at local artisan craft markets and also plan to host workshops to enable us to build on that all important community link.

To celebrate Yarn Shop Day, we will be hosting a Facebook competition, so do pop over to our page to find out more and from midnight on May 3rd, we’ll be offering all of our online customers a 10% discount when they buy from us on Yarn Shop Day!
