There is really something for everyone! These are dyed by the proprietor of the shop herself, so come say hello and have a squish!

Campaign for Wool supporter

TCFW_Main

We are very proud here at S&H Towers to have been made an official Campaign for Wool supporter.

The Campaign for Wool was initiated and launched by HRH The Prince of Wales in 2010 and is a non profit making promotional platform, which inspires and educates consumers about the many natural, sustainable benefits of real woof for fashion, interiors, craft and the built environment.  It is funded by the world’s leading wool organisations, supported by major brands, designers and the wool textile industry and it is now active across the globe.

So, we will be displaying our support of all things real wool with pride.

brochures

Our Yarningham brochures have arrived.

A big thanks to Ben Javens for designing the layout.  Another big thanks to Kirsten McTeer who has donated a sock pattern called ‘Bournville Socks’.  The pattern is named after Bournville, an area of Birmingham, famous worldwide as the home of Cadbury’s.  In fact the Cadbury factory is just behind our Yarningham venue.

Don’t forget to pick a brochure up when you attend Yarningham.

A big thank you to David and Liz from Sin Eater for hosting us, everyone who came to get their stitch on and most of all to the knitting weather gods who supplied us with some sunshine.  DSC_0004DSC_0005DSC_0009DSC_0010
