GET KNITTING - A NEW WOOL SHOP OPENS IN NORTHAMPTON
Big Rachel and Little Rachel are opening a wool shop on Saturday 29th March on Kingsley Front, it is a new venture for Rachel and a world away from her usual role of supporting Rachel and counselling others.
Rachel decided to put her love of knitting to use, and as circumstances would have it, a shop came empty on Kingsly Park Terrace in Northampton not far from where she lives and after much umming an arring, shall I or shan't I Rachel has taken the plunge and the result of this is her new shop.
Rachel will be stocking wools by Sirdar, Debbie Bliss, Noro and Louisa Harding as well as Pony knitting pins and crochet hooks together with Buttons, Ribbons both new and vintage and lace for your projects. In the shop they will also be holding workshops and drop-ins for those who are looking to learn how to knit or for those just looking to enjoy knitting something with other people.
All this will take place in a cosy corner of the shop with comfortable furniture to park oneself on whilst deciding what to knit and what colour to make it in.
Rachel will also be working in the shop and as you can see when I left they were busy putting the last touches to the shop sorting out the yarns and generally getting ready for Saturday.
The grand opening is from 10am on Saturday and as well as a having a spinning demo there will be tea, coffe and cakes so please go and support a new local business.
