Have you got unwanted skeins, tools or accessories in your stash? Something that is not quite right for you? Why not bring it along to our Yarn Swap and exchange them for something else.
Our Yarn Swap will take place on Saturday 9 December. Entry costs £3 and you can pay on the door. Your entry fee allows you to swap up to 5 items. Complete items only please - no part skeins or those without labels.

For our first Trunk Show we welcome Jen from Needlework on Thursday.
Needlework on Thursday design cross-stitch patterns of all your favourite Birmingham places. Jen's DIY kits include everything that you need to create an adorable finished hoop to hang in your home, or use as an extravagant frisbee.

Third Vault Yarns, Saturday 25 November, 11-6pm
With our second trunk show we welcome Lola from Third Vault Yarns .
Lola is the owner and dyer at TVY. She is highly obsessive about crafting, loves it with a passion and that passion can run away with her at times. Lola graduated from Computer Science and let her passion take over. Third Vault Yarns was born from Lola's addiction to knitting, playing with colour, and a steadfast commitment to staying geeky with a love of Sci fi and fantasy.
Lola will be in our pop up shop on Saturday 25 November, 11-6pm.
Stitch Up, Every Wednesday evening from 6-8pm.
We'll be hosting our Stitch Up socials every Wednesday evening at the shop.
Bring your current stitch based project and join our friendly conversation. It's free to attend and all are welcome. Bring your knitting, crochet, cross stitch, weaving, darning - you get the idea. Hope to see you there.
