Yarn Shop Day is soon upon us and is organised by the lovely folk at Let's Knit and Let's Get Crafting magazines. Seeing as though I have a dye studio, well let's take part!

The date you need is Saturday 30th April 2016 and the Countess Ablaze studio will be open from 10am - 5pm. As always will be a plethora of yarn, fibre, coffee and cake. Check this page Visiting the dye studio for any details you need such as how to get here. The address is Countess Ablaze, 101 Chorley Road, Swinton, Manchester, M27 4AA.

But that is not all. Oh no. I have invited the wonderful BritYarnin for a trunk show so you can have a fondle and buy some very special British yarns.

Isla BritYarn will be bringing along the ever-popular WYS Signature 4ply, the new Tamar from Blacker Yarns, undyed yarns from breeds such as Castlemilk and Lincoln Longwool plus some hand dyed yarns from other British dyers.

Between us we'll be making the day in the studio a bit of a British wool extravaganza and I'll be dyeing up plenty of British breed yarn too.
