Holiday time!

Just a brief note to say Three Bags Full will close this teatime (Friday
23rd) and re-open Saturday 31st.

When we get back I'm hoping to make a start on organising the second knitting group and on setting up some small group, basic knitting lessons. I thought I'd limit the classes to five people so everyone gets lots of personal attention - and so far, without advertising, I have four names on the list! Knitting's definitely on the up!

I knew I'd forgotten something!

Fyberspates! We have Fyberspates laceweight yarn too! How could I forget that?

Back to basics

It's such a great job filling a shop with beautiful yarns and we think we've chosen some corkers. If you don't find what you'd like, let me know.

At the moment we have:

Debbie Bliss - huge range of Baby Cashmerino, the Rialtos, Fez and Amalfi
Araucania Ranco sock wool
Cygnet sock wool and Aran (both Truly Wool Rich)
Mirasol K'Acha DK and Akapana aran
Patons wools and cottons - lots!
Artesano - loads of gorgeous alpaca and superwash merino
Yeoman Yarns - a range of cottons and acrylics, mostly on cones - can be used by handknitters and machine knitters alike
Recycled silk and banana fibre yarns - extensive range of 'ethnic' yarns in vibrant colours and at really reasonable prices
Noro - Kureyon aran and Yuzen DK

We're adding to these all the time.

We also have needles (altho' not as many as I'd like at the moment - the needle situation will improve from mid-August onwards), patterns, accessories, cards, tags and gifts. Oh, and gift vouchers. And if the yarn you buy is in hanks, there's a swift and ball winder available for making it into balls/cakes.

Come down and see us and tell us what you think!
