One of the things we’ve always loved about the shops participating in the Great London Yarn Crawl is the variety that they offer! For multi-craftual yarn crawlers, The Village Haberdashery, located in West Hampstead is a must-see with their wide variety of yarns, fabric, notions and other crafts like paper, embroidery, cross stitch and more.
For yarn lovers there’s something to suit every budget from Adriafil, Rico, and Stitch & Story to Erika Knight, Baa Ram Ewe, Mrs Moon, and The Fibre Co. Annie has also brought in Blue Sky Fibers, SweetGeorgia and Madelinetosh and then rounded things out with local UK dyers like The Wool Barn, Knit the Bed, and Riverknits.
As part of the GLYC, local London dye studio Qing Fibre will be hosting a special knitting workshop on Sunday, 1st September and sharing the techniques to make a beautiful tasseled scarf with marling and colourwork. Spaces are limited to six and you can book onto this workshop with a minimum £25 donation to Refuge.
If you’re also a sewist then you’ll love browsing the giant wall of fabric filled with the likes of Cotton & Steel, Dashwood Studio, Riley Blake, Sevenberry, among others! There’s also a huge selection of patterns and books with inspiration for quilts, clothes, and stuff for all members of the family too.
Yarn crawlers will be treated to 10% off at The Village Haberdashery during the week-long GLYC - and they’re also making their own donation of 10% to Refuge too! Make sure you show your passport and don’t miss this stop!
