  • Click and collect

    Although both shops are currently closed we are running a collection service. Often the order only offers collection from one shop but please don’t panic. We check the address and send a collection time for the shop closest to you. Some orders are taking longer to be prepared as we sometimes need to check for items from the other shop. if you can’t what you are looking for online please message us 😊   stay safe

  • Lockdown part 3

    As we fast approach a New Year we once again find our bricks and mortar shops closed 😢 We are however very much open online. You can place your order and collect at either store or request local delivery. Unfortunately not all our products are on the website but you can send us and email or Facebook message if there is something you cannot find. This 3rd lockdown is very hard hitting for our little business so any purchases you can make from us are vital and much appreciated.   Much love to you all  Jean, Claire and Kate

  • Are you Christmas ready??

    Christmas is fast approaching and I don't know about you but I'm not quite ready!! Currently both shops are open working on our normal hours. You can of course order anything you need here too but postage is taking longer than expected. I would estimate the last day to guarantee your parcel will arrive before Christmas is 17th December. We have had several enquiries about gift vouchers. We sell gift vouchers in store but these are not digital so unfortunately cant be used in our online shop. We will be closed on all platforms from Wednesday 23rd December until Tuesday...

    Hey there What project do you have on the go at the moment?? Is your next project already planned out like mine is despite the nine I currently have on the needles and hook!!! Just wanted to update the blog post as I know its been a very long time. We are always trying to keep up with the website but with the two shops it is an ongoing challenge and almost a full time job in itself. I don't like it to interrupt my knitting time too much.   Anyway have a browse around and let us know if...

  • The warmer weather has arrived!!

    Now that the warmer weather has arrived the knitting has slowed as we are enjoying being out and about and doing the gardening. We have put a few special clearance lines on the website for you. These are in limited supply and are moving very fast so if you have your eye on something snap it up quick!! We are also in the process of making up the next list of lessons to include some workshops for making bags and Christmas gifts. These workshops will be limited spaces to ensure everyone achieves their project so be sure to book early...

  • We have nearly been established for 15 years!!

    It's amazing at the end of this month we will have been established for 15 years. Time has flown by since walking into Ann Louise to buy three balls of wool and coming away having brought ourselves a shop!! After an initial steep learning curve we now have a vast knowledge of all things woolly and fibrous and an even bigger love for them. We stock huge ranges of yarns, fabrics, patterns, haberdashery and buttons and are still slowly adding to the website. The shops are well worth a visit if you are in the area.
