Friday 3rd May 2019 6:30pm - 10pm
It's been almost 3 years since I ventured out on Lancaster market with a table full of local wool, a smile and my big coat. Along with Lancashire Farm Wool and Teeswater Wool from Clitheroe was a range of yarn from West Yorkshire Spinners. It was my first big purchase and I deliberated for days (I make that order weekly now without blinking!) but Janice the Sales Manager was very patient and didn't pressure me - just waited until I made the right decision to go ahead!
I quickly decided that it wasn't ok to be recommending sock yarn and patterns without having a go myself - a couple of friends introduced me to Christine Perry - AKA the Winwick Mum, the sock enabler! Turning a heel on the market was a joyous moment - and I've been hooked ever since. Christine very kindly came along to the opening of Penny Street and I'm absolutely thrilled that she will be coming back for Northern Yarn's 3rd birthday bash!
Not only is Christine going to be here to talk all things socks and introduce her fantastic new range of WYS sock yarn, Janice from West Yorkshire Spinners will also be here, with lots of gorgeous samples and will talk to us about how things work at the mill, their ethos and how new yarns are developed.
I can't wait!
You'll get a drink of fizz and although I can"t promise a giant sheep cake - a birthday cake of some description will be appearing! There will be birthday exclusives, new lines and a competition drawn on the night! (Your entry ticket will enter you in to the draw) I really hope you can help me celebrate!!!
Numbers will be limited so we aren't too busy and we can all have room to look around.
