Another month is almost over and as it comes to an end, so does another of our Class Calendars.

We are about to welcome a whole new batch of Learn To students and, as always, we can’t wait to share our love of hooks and needles.

Today we launch a fresh new Class Calendar, packed with as many classes & workshops as we could fit in.

We hope we have something for everyone!

The Simple Things


The June issue of The Simple Things is is store now!


When dawn comes early and dusk comes late, it seems like there’s all the time in the world to do, or not do, stuff. Time for strawberries, of course, for a clinking glass of elderflower cordial, to admire a single bloom or go looking for ladybirds.

Embrace T-shirt weather and tea bread loaves, walking and talking, sailing and snoozing. Being busy merely means there are peas to be picked, fishing rods to be held. It means taking time to live well.

Time to enjoy The Simple Things.



A small top-up of our popular GEMS stitch markers arrived this week, in lots of lovely colours and a range of different sizes.


Stitch Pixie

Our monthly delivery Peta has arrived and we have new stock of all three styles of Stitch Pixie Bags, in gorgeous fabrics as always … but I am sure they won’t last long!

On the Needles at Tangled Yarns

Rachel is still busy building her wardrobe of accessories. This week she’s finished a gorgeous new hat, the Smocked Slouch in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran.


She also finished a super smooshy Part Deux in seven complementary shades of The Fibre Company’s Road to China Light.



It is all about the stripes this week. Rachel was smitten with Laurens version of Rayures by Amy Miller she was inspired to make her own…well almost! The thought of all that stocking stitch and colour changes made it a little less appealing. Luckily the lovely Liz came to the rescue with her knitting machine!


Finally, two cute beanies in cool bright stripes came off her needles for the new baby of friends – Little Set of Stripes in Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino.


Our new
Kibou has been tempting lots of customers! Maureen used the lovely subtle shades to great advantage in a One Skein Chevron Scarf.



Anita knitted the reversible
Botanic Hatfor her son in bright citrus shades of The Fibre Company’s Organik.
