December at Sunspun promises to be another busy one and a month of more ‘new happenings’.
On Saturday we had our first ever Yarn Tasting Event – this time, summer yarns. We had 18 ladies come along to the shop, to try various cotton, linen and bamboo yarns. It was great to have the shop full of enthusiastic knitters, crocheters and weavers all finding something new to try and someone new to connect with. We have more yarn tastings planned for next year so do keep an eye out for them!

Don’t forget to check on our new YouTube channel (and subscribe if you choose). We are very excited about it! It is absolutely an ongoing project and we will be adding more and more educational content as time goes by. We have created a Playlist called Tuesday Tutorials where we have uploaded (and will continue to upload when new content is created) all the short tutorial videos that have appeared in ourInstagram feed so they are conveniently located for you to easily find them should you decide to review them again.
Our Ravelry Group – Sunspun Fibre Folk – has had a bit of an overhaul and if you are on Ravelry (or have been thinking of joining) why not join our group and show us your lovely finished items. It is also a great place to talk to like minded souls, ask questions and find out about ‘yarny’ things other members may have to share. Our Shawlalong is going strong and you can still join in if it takes your fancy. All the details are on our blog and in the Ravelry thread.
Of course, Christmas is just around the corner now and we have some lovely gift ideas for the ‘yarny’ folk in your life – or for you to pass on to others as you are the ‘yarny’ folk! Watch out for our blog post on Tuesday 8th December where we will tell you all about them.
Our last day of trading for 2015 is Christmas Eve – Thursday 24th December. We will be open till our usual closing time – 5pm. We will be having a small break and will re-open 10am Tuesday 5th January 2016. We will remind you, via Instagram and Facebook, closer to the date so you have a chance to grab any last minute things you may need to carry you over our ‘re-charge the batteries’ break!
