Yarn shop questionnaire


We’d really love to open an independent yarn shop in the heart of Birmingham but need your help.

We need to know about your yarn buying habits.  Could you please spare a few minutes to complete our online questionnaire.

The survey takes a couple of minutes to complete and your answers will help inform our dream shop.

Florence the Big Cuddly Easter Bunny


Meet Florence.  She’s a big cuddly bunny who is in search of a good home.

Florence will be the star prize at our Easter Egg Hunt Hootenanny on 31 March.

I used the Big Cuddly Bunny pattern from which is available for free here.  I knitted her in Twilley’s of Stamford Freedom Wool in shades 430 and 401.

So, to stand a chance of snuggling up to cuddly Florence you’ll have to come along to our Easter Egg Hunt Hootenanny.



Eggs = Prizes 2

To stand a chance of winning the necklace come along to our Easter Egg Hunt Hootenanny on 31 March.

Eggs = Prizes


So we’re busy here at S&H HQ planning for our one off hootenanny.  We also have some exciting plans that we want to share with you.

So by means of enticement for you to come along we’ll be giving away a slew of prizes as part of our Easter Egg Hunt.

The first prize I can reveal for our Easter Egg Hunt Hootenanny is 2 skeins of Artesano Aran in Strathy.  The yarn is 50% alpaca and 50% Peruvian highland wool and each skein weighs 100g.  The blend creates a strong and durable yarn that is as soft as it is hard wearing.

We’ll reveal another prize next week.

To stand a chance of winning any of our prizes come along to our Easter Egg Hunt Hootenanny on 31 March.
