Lois Mickeburgh, owner of Jenny Wren’s Yarns said they were excited to be involved again.

The event was started by knitting and crafting magazines in a bid to celebrate Britain’s much-loved independent wool shops, she said.

She said: “We can’t wait wait to take part in the event. Knitting and crochet is growing in popularity, and we know that customers rely on their local yarn shop for more than just needles and wool.

“Many people come in for advice or to join a class or a group. and they love to feel part of a crafting community.”
