You can see if there’s a workshop or knit group you’d like to join when you’re visiting, or if you want to ask a more complicated question, you can pick a day when there isn’t a workshop on.


I just wanted to thank you very much for the wonderful workshop yesterday. You have a great space and it was lovely to have a peaceful day just crocheting. Avril was brilliant as were the other interesting and talented ladies on the course.  Lunch was perfect and also the endless supply of tea which went down well!”

“Thank you for a really memorable day…I enjoyed it so much and learnt more than I dared to hope, largely because of Claire’s reassuring, patient approach. Also thank you for a delicious lunch, where we all got to know each other much better.”

“Just attended the second part of the 2 day felting workshop. It was brilliant and I am really pleased with the felting piece which I made. I learnt lots and had a couple of very pleasant days with Joyce and her team. Even if you are not doing a workshop the shop is well worth a visit as it is packed with lots of very interesting yarns and fibres, plus Joyce and her staff are lovely. Thank you everyone!!”

All our workshops are held in the shop. Throughout the day we give you teas, coffee and biscuits. A delicious home cooked lunch is provided along with tea time treats in the afternoon.

If you have any food allergies please let us know before the event so that we can cater to your needs.

Workshops start at 10am (please don’t arrive too early!) and finish at 4pm. 

There is plenty of opportunity to browse whilst you are here and spend the gift voucher you’re given on the day.
