Craftucation!

I’m so excited! We’ve been working really hard behind the scenes for the last couple of months on a new project – Craftucation. So what is it? https://youtu.be/TqZ5oZ9cBkQ Craftucation will be a brand new online art and craft course platform, specialising in high quality in-depth art and craft courses. We have a really fantastic vision of how it’s all going to work, and we want to bring you along for the ride as we get it through to launch. Our idea is to create a whole collaborative craft community, so why not pop over to our holding site at craftucation.com…

Busy!

Hello! Sorry that it’s been a while since my last post. Things have been busy (good busy!) in the shop recently, with visitors from all over the UK and beyond; the more exotic locations being Tazmania, Louisiana and Cape Town!

Abercairn Yarns has had to expand to three shelves of yarn, and now has some gorgeous hand dyed fibres for spinning and felting too! Knitter Scarlet has dropped over…
