I’ve just spent the afternoon pricing yarn and stocking the shelves for Manchester’s new yarn shop, Purl City Yarns!!
Located in Manchester’s Northern Quarter, Purl City Yarns will be opening its doors at 10am on Tuesday 12th October 2010 with loads of scrumptious yarns for you! Some of the yarns in the shop are Manos Del Uruguay, Artesano, Debbie Bliss, Mirasol, Louisa Harding, Noro, Araucania, Austermann, King Cole, Lang, Natural Dye Studio, Misti Alpaca and Schoppel Wolle. There will also be a selection of needles from Knit Pro and Brittany.
I can also verify that there will be buttons! For those of you that love to rummage through old buttons, you will be very happy salmons because there are loads of them!
To celebrate the opening of the shop, Purl City Yarns invites you to ‘Purl the City’ by knitting or crocheting a cityscape for the 2D woolly city that will be a permanent display in the shop’s very own gallery, The Purl Gallery. Your efforts will be rewarded with 10% off your first instore or online purchase.
You won’t just find a woolly city in The Purl Gallery. On 22nd October 2010, 6pm – 9pm, The Purl Gallery will open with Knit & Destroy, a new collection of machine knits by Kandy Diamond, which will continue until 28th November 2010.
You can find Purl City Yarns at 62 Port Street, Manchester, M1 2EQ. For more information go to Purl City Yarn’s website and blog and follow them on Twitter @purlcityyarns. I also suggest you sign-up for the Purl City Yarns Newsletter to stay updated on future promotions and events.
