Posted on 11 March, 2015 at 9:00 Comments comments ()
Creative Needles is celebrating one year of trading!
 
It as been a wonderful time meeting lot's of lovely new people who have come to see what we are about and what we have to offer. 

The yarn is growing with the introduction of different wool's from companies like Sirdar, Stylecraft and Jarol. We are pleased that the local lady from ' May Hill Yarn' as chosen to use us to sell her yarn and patterns.

This year we are launching 'Bergere de France' yarns. 
They are an interesting company that produces the product from start to finish, offering a large selection of yarns to suite everyone.  

Then & Now...

Creative Needles - 1 year on!

This picture was taken during the alterations before we moved in.
It was Jan 2014, cold and hard work but well worth it.

The premises had been used for a variety of  businesses, Pine Kitchens, a  Blacksmiths and Sports Equipment. The beautiful oak beams insulted when the pine kitchens were using the building, gives the present showroom a rustic charm. 

We moved in on the 1st February 2014 and Creative Needles was born.

The first year as seen the introduction of knitting yarn and accessories, this we are adding to all the time. Selecting a range of wool to suite everyone's taste. The trend for British Yarn at present, works well with the local May Hill Gotland range, just 2 miles up the road.

Needlescraft - cross stitch, tapestry, embroidery and lace-making, still popular with some.
We are slowly growing the range with the introduction of the cross stitch kits, ideal for the person that likes a small project or even lovely to give as a gift.

What ever you are interested in......we would love to meet you!
