Christmas at The Yarn Cake

Return to blog


Christmas is fast approaching, and with it our annual Christmas break, so we thought we'd send you a wee email with our upcoming opening times and some general news.

Festive Opening Times

We will be now open every day, including this Monday December 21st, until 3pm on Christmas Eve at which point we will close for our Christmas break. We will reopen as normal on Friday January 8th. So you have a grand total of 5 1/2 shopping days to stock up on knitting supplies! Although please note that we've finished up our knit nights for the year, so will not be opening late in the coming week.

Last Minute Gifts
Don't forget that we sell gift vouchers from L5 as well as a range of kits to suit all levels of knitters....or we can put together bespoke gift packs for you, if you have something specific in mind. We also have a selection of Choconnastick packs available for any non-crafters in your life!

Upcoming Classes

Our next series of classes for 2016 are:

- Beginner Knitting, 4 week course starting on Wednesday January 13th, L115 including all materials, handouts, tea and cake and a 10% discount on the night. (Please note we only have a couple of spaces left for this session)
- Finishing Techniques, Wednesday February 10th, L28 including tea and cake and a 10% discount on the night
- Beginner Crochet, 4 week course starting on Wednesday February 17th, L115 including all materials, handouts, tea and cake and a 10% discount on the night.

Alpaca Party

The Drops Alpaca Party is still on, with all Drops alpaca yarns at 25% off until the end of the month. A wide selection of alpaca yarns are available at The Yarn Cake, ranging from 4ply Drops Alpaca right through to the super bulky Drops Andes, so now's a good time to grab a bargain!

Finally, we would like to thank all our customers for their continued support in 2015...given we started with a six week road closure in January, some of you had to quite literally go the extra mile to come to the shop and we're very grateful so many of you stuck by us!

We would like to wish you a calm and crafty Christmas and New Year and hope 2016 brings you much happiness.

Hope to see you soon!

Antje and The Yarn Cake team
