Knit Night

In-person Knit Night is back! We are beyond excited to invite you back to the shop for stitchy evenings. Knit Night takes place on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month from 7-9pm in the shop. Bring yourself and your project along. Treats and beverages will be provided.

Our bi-monthly Knit Night will be limited to 9 participants per session as our space is limited here in the shop.

COVID Protocols: We'll keep the door open for ventilation, so please dress warmly. We ask that you please take a lateral flow test the day of the event to keep everyone healthy at our events. You are welcome to wear a mask if you would prefer but we are happy to make this a mask-free event. Attendance is limited to 9 people per session, so if you can't make it please make sure you cancel so we can open up the space to others.

Sign up here.


Our Country House Retreats all take place at the beautiful Melmerby Hall in Cumbria. It's a traditional English manor house tucked away in the stunning Cumbrian countryside, perfect for a few days away from 'real' life.
