More New Yarn

The Sewing Box have been able to get more of the Merino yarn in more colours…and don’t forget that when you spend £50 you can get 10% off with their loyalty scheme. Yes, shameless promotion – but it’s good to have a knitting shop with stuff we actually like!

Happy New Year

If your New Year’s Resso is to get out more, why not join our group?  We are now meeting twice a week – on Monday evenings from 7-9 in Il Vesuvio and on Thursday afternoons from 1-3 in the Sewing Box Wool Room (Knit and Knatter).  New Year meetings start  in the second week of 2012.  All are completely free – though we do buy a coffee or a drink in Il Vesuvio.  We’re a mixture of very speedy, experienced stitchers and beginners with everything in between.  The speedy, experienced types are happy to help if you need it and all are friendly.

You are more than welcome to drop in with your knitting, crochet, sewing or whatever yarny project you have on the go.

Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.


Welcome Steve and Lynne

Llantwit’s only wool emporium has recently changed hands. Lynne and Steve have taken over the Sewing Box and are making big changes. One such change is a room, with chairs and table devoted entirely to knitting and crochet. There are plans afoot to run classes and even a daytime SNB. Watch this space!

Come and Join Us!

Now that the weather is getting a bit warmer (!) why not treat yourself to an evening out with some nice people and some lovely yarn? If you like to knit, crochet, or sew, put your project into a bag and pop into Il Vesuvio on Monday evening between 7 – 9. You will find a friendly group, nice coffee (and even nicer wine) and a warm welcome. We are all ages and all abilities, knitters, crocheters and somethimes patchwork or rugmakers. If you want to try something new, there will almost certainly be someone who can give you advice and help.

Want to learn to knit or crochet? We can help – though beware, it’s addictive…

WWKIP 2010

This year we’ll be knitting at the Community & Fun Day on 19th June.  At the time of posting this, I haven’t had a stall confirmed, but I’m pretty confident!  Come and find us…

We are one

Year old that is.  To celebrate this achievement we are having a St David’s Day meal at Il Vesuvio.  St D’s day this year is on a Monday so we already have a table booked!
