We also stock Knit Pro, Clover Bamboo and Addi circular knitting needles, double pointed needles from Knit Pro Symfonie and metal DPNs as well as Clover, Knit Pro Waves and Pony crochet hooks... and many of the Pony and Clover knitting accessories too.

We also stock a range of haberdashery, buttons, elastic, ‘velcro’, sewing machine needles, darning wool, sewing thread, ribbon, felt, the list goes on. But not all the way to Z, as we don’t stock zips (in case you thought we’d left them off our list)!
PATTERNS We stock single patterns and knitting and crochet books from Sirdar, Sublime, Rowan, Noro, Erika Knight, Stylecraft and many others. We are happy to order in patterns if you can’t find the one you need. Single patterns cost £3.00 and books start at £5.95.
SERVICE We offer knowledgeable, friendly knitting and crochet advice on all purchases. We can help with pattern, yarn choice, substituting yarn and colour matching. We will hold a spare ball of yarn for you to make sure you have enough for your project AND we also do that old fashioned thing of holding your yarn for you so you can collect weekly to spread the cost. If you buy too much yarn, we will take the spare yarn back (see Returns for details).
GARMENTS KNITTED TO ORDER We offer a made-to-order knitting service. Prices vary according to the garment and yarn used. So if you want a gift for a new grandchild or want to treat yourself, pop in and see what we can do.
We hope you enjoy visiting our shop in Leicester and buying from us - we are sure that you’ll be back to visit us again. It’s a far more rewarding experience to see and touch products directly than browsing endless screens and finding that what you ordered is not right. Support local bricks and mortar retailing.
