We are celebrating Yarn Shop Day on Saturday 2nd May 2015!
The Dublin Knit Collective is organising a City Centre Yarn Crawl for knitters to visit their favourite local bricks-and-mortar stores, This is Knit and The Constant Knitter…with fun-filled yarn enabling and knitting along the way.
Join us for the whole day or catch up with us at the time and place that suits you.
10:30am – 12:00pm: The yarn crawl will begin at This is Knit and we’ll get our party started here. Bring your favourite This is Knit FO (finished object) and we’ll parade and show it off. This is Knit is a perfect place for a photo shoot of our favourite knitted projects. Let’s see who can come up with an interesting selfie with your favourite TIK staff member or yarn.
12:00pm to1:30pm: Join the City Centre SnB for a knitting tea or coffee break at Accents Coffee and Tea Lounge.
Followed by a Takeaway Lunch at Duck… just around the corner from Accents.
2:00pm to 4pm: Head over to The Constant Knitter, voted one of the 12 Best Shops in Ireland 2012 by the Readers of The Irish Times. Join The DKC for a knitworking session at this yarn filled shop on Francis Street.
Yarn enabling and shopping for your favourite or new yarn!
Rosemary will point you in the right direction…. how about some Life in the Long Grass?
Joining us for the knitworking session? Bring along your knitting or get started on a new project and relax in the bright studio at The Constant Knitter.
Also, there will be a mini-workshop, Bling for Your Knitting….Learn how to Make Stitch Markers.
Join Diane from The Dublin Knit Collective and learn an easy technique for creating your own stitch markers. Materials fee of €2.00 per person and while supplies last.
