Like you, I’m following the news of COVID-19 and I have decided to make a few changes to how the shop operates.

The shop remains open as normal - Wednesday thro Friday, 10am to 4pm and 10am to 5pm on Saturday.  However when things change and I need to reduce hours or indeed close for a period, then I’ll share this information on the website, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and newsletter.  Please check these ‘channels’ if you’re planning a visit.

In the shop, doors, surfaces and our hands are cleaned regularly.  Please stay away if you have a high temperature or a new continuous cough.  You can find guidance on the NHS website re symptoms, hand washing and self isolation.

Remember, we are happy to post items to you.  We can help you by phone (01333 312 042) or email (  We can take payment by card or PayPal.

Given our small size and the benefits of social distancing, all shop groups are cancelled and workshops are postponed.  Tuesday’s group will go ahead (in case people don’t see this message), but there are no further shop groups scheduled. Katherine Lymer’s workshops will be rescheduled in the autumn.  Full refunds will be offered for all workshop bookings, I aim to do this by Wednesday 18th March when I’m back in the shop.

This is an uncertain and very difficult time for everyone, but yarn crafts can help some.  Whether giving a sense of control and purpose or a means to escape (and bonus... you need clean hands).  So, I’m aiming to do more online to keep in touch, mainly by sharing more shop inspiration and all my WIPS.  Please share your projects too, with other Woolly Brewers, on whatever ‘channel’ suits you #thewoollybrew.  Feel free to call the shop or contact me online if you have a yarn or pattern query... always happy to help!
