We're having a Wild Winter Craft Night and you're invited to join us!

As the evenings draw ever chillier we decided it's best to grab some yarn and get knitting so to inspire you to do the same we're delighted that November's event will also be the official book launch for Louise Walker's AMAZING new book Faux Taxidermy Knits. The most talked about knitting book of the year, containing projects everyone wants to own, it's filled with super cute creatures and the good news is you don't need to be able to knit to come and enjoy the night, we'll show you how or you can dip into our other non woolly crafts too.

Join Louise for a very special workshop where she'll be showing you how to knit a special animal project inspired by her book for for non-knitters there's the option of making a cute creation from felt. Louise will also be bringing her animals along for a very special exhibition plus you can buy a signed copy of the book and win prizes! 

The ladies from our Knitting Knook will also be on hand to show you how to knit if you've never picked up the needles before. We've got plenty of wool (thanks to Love Knitting) so just turn up and join in!
