Today is officially Yarn Shop Day! I paid a visit to the hallowed place where I learned to. Rocket back in Sept 13, which also happened to be celebrating its second birthday.
Happy birthday to the Textile Studio!
Staff and customers celebrated with something sparkling, cake, and even better a discount on purchases.
Needless to say, my yarn stash was increased while under the influence of a glass of non alcoholic fizz.
The Textile Studio has more than doubled in the past two years. It is bright, well stocked in all things crafty- yarn, fabric, ribbon, buttons, hooks, needles, pattern books etc etc. there are even comfy chairs should a husband/partner wish to sit down while the important business of yarn purchasing is going on. Classes are run regularly for both beginners and old hands for sewing, knitting and crochet. It is a paradise for the crafters of Belfast.
I hope you had the opportunity to visit a yarn shop near you today!
