Helping Hands competition

Thursday 8th October 2020


Our lovely, squidgy new yarn, Softie, is now in your local yarn shop and the name really says it all - a light and airy yarn, which knits and crochets superfast, and is perfect for this season’s relaxed and over-sized shapes.

Softie is the perfect yarn for new knitters or crocheters and it got us reminiscing about who passed on their crafty skills to us.  Was it a grandma, an aunt, your mother, father or brother?  Or was it a school teacher or your Brown Owl at brownies.  Whoever it was we all owe them a huuuuuge thank you.

So, we decided to ask you to tell us more about who taught you to knit or crochet, or who you have passed your skills on to.  We’d like to you to share your stories and pictures so that we can put together a video to say thank you to all those crafters who so generously gave up their time to help us on our crafty journey.

All you need to do is respond to one of the posts on social media or email your story and pictures to .  Please note that by sending us any pictures you are agreeing to let us use them in the video.

Two lucky people will be chosen at random to each win a pack of Softie and a pattern in their chosen colour, so get those photo albums out and take us on your trip down memory lane.
