Two day event only May 3 and 4.
Designers Jenny Watson, Sarah Hazell, Anniken Allis and Zoe Halstead, along with many others, have pledged their support and will be helping local stores to host all kinds of free events and offer great discounts to customers.
Yarn on the Square in Ely will take advantage of the town's annual Eel festival, held to commemorate the days when its taxes used to be paid with buckets of eels and be encouraging visitors to help knit an oversized eel. The store will play host to not one, but two pop-up shops, from designer Libby Summers and luxury yarn supplier Araucania. It's also holding its own 'little stitching show', with prizes for the best knitted socks, knitted or crocheted toys and crocheted corsage to be awarded by Let's Knit magazine editor Sarah Neal.
Beaker Button in Weyhill will be enlisting the help of its local guerrilla knitting group, the Spitfire knitters, to accomplish a long-held desire to yarn bomb owner Jennifer's car. The owners are also offering 10% off everything in store on the day.
A large number of retailers will host workshops and taster sessions with the generous help of Yarn Shop Day ambassadors.
Birmingham store Guthrie and Ghani is holding an upcycling event with designer Sarah Hazell, where customers bring in old bangles and cover them with knitting and fabric.
West Yorkshire store Just Unwind will feature a finishing workshop from designer Jenny Watson, while Erika Knight will be appearing at Craft Days in Essex. Regular Let's Knit designer Zoe Halstead will showcase her talents with classes at Crafty Sisters in Loughborough and Knit Nottingham in Nottingham.
Other ambassadors making appearances around the country include Debbie Tomkies, Anniken Allis, Lynne Rowe, Val Pierce, Luise Roberts, Tracey Todhunter, Jane Burns, Sachio Ishii and Lauren O'Farrell.
Erika Knight says: 'I am delighted to be an ambassador for the Yarn Shop Day campaign it is inherent to my ethos to support our bricks and mortar stores where the expertise, passion, hands-on experience, sharing of ideas, advice and the odd cup of tea is vital to sustaining a thriving crafting community.'
Discounts on yarns and patterns are widely planned across the country for May 3. The Craft Box in Barnsley is offering up to 50% off selected yarns. Cottontail Crafts in Settle is giving 25% off Peter Pan yarns, 10% off everything else and a raffle to win a 65 Prim loom.
One of the most innovative, however, is M and G Designs in Louth, which is allowing customers to choose hourly discounts of 10% by picking names of spinners out of a hat.
Over 100 shops have so far signed up to the Yarn Shop Day campaign, which is the brainchild of Let's Knit and Let's Get Crafting magazines. To find out the location of participating shops, customers can visit the Let's Knit website www.letsknit.co.uk and view an interactive map to help plan their day accordingly.
