Cafe at Uffculme

You may know that our venue Uffculme Centre has an onsite cafe that serves hot and cold drinks, light snacks and confectionary.  What you may not know is that every penny of profit generated by the cafe is put back into the NHS and more specifically back into Uffculme.

Every purchase made in the Uffculme Café goes back into the NHS and is contributing to the Trust’s values of offering care to people living in Birmingham and Solihull who are experiencing mental health problems.

 

Made by Penguins

Due to unforeseen circumstances The Yarn Cafe will no longer be able to attend this year’s Yarningham.  We are however pleased to announce a last minute addition to our marketplace – Made by Penguins.

Made by Penguins yarns are hand-dyed by Lisa-Lou in her Hampshire studio. Every hank is hand-dyed using a variety of techniques including painting.  Lisa-Lou specialises in producing small batches of one-of-a-kind colourways created with your creations in mind.
