Yarn Shop Day 2015

We're busy getting ready for this year's various events, with Yarn Shop Day fast approaching already! We were delighted to come second in the British Knitting Awards "Best Yarn Shop Day Experience" last year and are hoping to up the ante this time round!

This year's event is on the 2nd of May and we're very excited to have the talented Lucy Hague bring along her patterns, samples and gorgeous new book! Lucy submitted a design to the first ever Glasgow School of Yarn design competition and was a vendor at last year's event...and we've all become a little bit obsessed with her patterns since then. Hopefully you'll enjoy them as much as we do!

We'll also have in-shop discounts on the day - just tell us you love your yarn shop for a 10% discount - and some goodie bags for you to take home (while stocks last).

Queen Margaret Drive Street Festival
We'll be participating in this summer's festival again, which is going to have a focus on local heritage and architecture and also have crafts, kids' activities, food and drink and all manner of exciting things happening. The event is on June 21st from 11am to 5pm and we'd love to see you there!

....and finally....
The Glasgow School of Yarn 2015
We are back for our fifth (!!!) anniversary this autumn. Yeah, we don't know where the time went, either.... This year's dates are 23/24th October and we're back at the stunning Mackintosh Church at Queen's Cross. We've got all kinds of exciting stuff planned and are hoping to make this the best GSoY yet - we'll get the details up as soon as we can, so keep your eyes peeled on our website.

Hope to see you in the shop soon,
Antje and The Yarn Cake team
