We are delighted to unwrap a seasonal showcase of exquisite gifts.

‘Delicately drawn products for the Urban Nature Girl.’
The Aviary is the independent brand of freelance illustrator and designer-maker, Victoria Foster. It was set up in 2013 to enable her intricate images to be translated across a range of unique gift items and accessories.
The delicately drawn and sensitively made products predominantly reference plants, animals and the beauty of the natural world.
Rose’s work is already known, admired and collected with our exclusive in-store KnitWare range collaboration and extensive handmade button collection. The full selection of ceramics will be available to you at Emporium.
Antoinette’s work was such a hit last year that she sold out of her entire collection in a weekend at Emporium. Luckily for us, she has been waving her alchemist’s wand for months to bring you an even larger selection of treasures.
Our collaboration with this exceptionally talented silversmith will be revealed as a limited edition piece of knitter’s jewellery at Emporium.
Fine felt, fibres and fabric combine in a rich, diverse collection of statement wall pieces and wearable art inspired by the coastal and marshland scenery of acclaimed textile artist Di’s north Kent home.
Erika Knight and Gillian Ely team up to head the Faversham Wool Tribe.
Come in and discuss all things knitterly as you choose yarn for your next project (we’re obsessed and it’s simply a coincidence our initials added together spell GEEK.)
Erika is our best yarny buddy and we know you all loved her company the last time she was with us, so come on in and show her what you’ve made from her designs.
Emporium, our workshop room transformation to the loveliest pop-up shop of goodies from local makers, continues Saturday 10am – 4pm and Sunday 11am – 2pm.
Designs around the theme of reflection lead us into some meditative winter knitting to give or to keep. Eleven patterns, insightful articles, two cocktail recipes. Cheers!
31 shades of Skinny Singles and all 30 shades of Sock Minis were added to stock; the Skinny Singles are selling so rapidly that a few shades are sold out already.
It’s been worth the wait as the colours are outstandingly good, the handle of the yarn is glorious and it’s great watching your inventive colour combining of Skinny Singles with shots of contrast in the form of a Sock Mini (or two. Or three. Or ………)
All we need now is a huge delivery of extra hours in the day and more knitting time please!
Thursday 1st September 2016
Can you believe we’ll be celebrating soon? What a year it has been and all thanks to the extraordinary support of you lovely lot.
We will be kicking off a month of jollity by being open for a bit during the day (1pm – 5pm) as well as our Knit Night from 7pm – 9pm.
To celebrate the best way we know…with yarn…we have worked with the magicians at SweetGeorgia Yarns to create a unique colourway of handpainted Superwash DK that echoes the hues of The Yarn Dispensary.
This custom shade launching in September will be exclusive to us and available in a limited quantity this year alongside semi solid shades to allow you to scheme and dream to your heart’s content.
The Yarn Dispensary Birthday Blend No.1
on a 234m per skein 100% superwash merino dk base; it echoes the colours of the shop from the rich blue pigeonholes, the bone white walls, the warm oak beams to the dusky grey of our frontage and the burnished gold of the pestle and mortar above the doorway.
One hundred skeins only
