Keep Yarn On Our Streets cam­paign

Simply Knitting - - Yarn Community - LOUISA SHE­WARD

Sup­port your lo­cal yarn shop this Oc­to­ber by tak­ing part in this un­miss­able event…

What is Keep Yarn On Our Streets? It is a cam­paign to bring to­gether yarn shops across the UK. Yarn shops are such a great re­source, with work­shops, so­cials and more and we want to shout about it! Our first cam­paign will run through Oc­to­ber 2018 and it is a trea­sure hunt. All of the shops tak­ing part will have 50 col­lectable enamel badges for sale and the first three yarnies to col­lect ten di er­ent badges will win a prize!

How many shops are tak­ing part? In our first cam­paign we have 42 shops tak­ing part, with lots more eager to join in for the next one!

What can we knit­ters do to help? Fol­low and share our cam­paign on In­sta­gram and help us get the mes­sage out there. Get out and about and ex­plore your lo­cal yarn shops, and get plan­ning your route for the Oc­to­ber trea­sure hunt. If your lo­cal yarn shop isn’t tak­ing part, tell them about the cam­paign!

What role do the badges play? I wanted to cre­ate some­thing col­lectable that both yarn shops and cus­tomers could get ex­cited about to­gether. I was a mem­ber of Girl Guid­ing for most of my life, and as a re­sult, I’ve al­ways been ob­sessed with col­lect­ing badges.

Where can we find out more? Head to www. keep­yarnonourstreets.co.uk or fol­low the In­sta­gram @keep­yarnonourstreets.

Own­ers of The Fi­bre Lounge, Louisa She­ward and Me­lanie McLough­lin, are the ladies be­hind this cam­paign!
