The Craft Barn
The Craft Barn
The Black Sheep Barn is, we believe, the largest knitting and stitching shop in the UK. However, we are still very much a village store. Staffed by experts (and some may say fanatics!) we stock an incredible range of knitting and stitching products. We were the first Rowan Flagship store in the country, have one of the best ranges of Scheepjes in store, in the UK and are proud to have Designer shops featuring Arne and Carlos, Cherry Heart, Lilla Bjorn, Emma Varnam and more.
Our stitching selection is pretty special too. We stock a massive range of Bothy threads, DMC and Anchor kits, plus incredible samplers from Historical Sampler Company. There’s a huge range of Aida and threads too.
Tea Bags Full Tea Shop
Did I mention we sell cake too? Yes, our best seller every day is the delicious cake in our ‘Tea Bags Full’ tea shop. Open every day it’s the perfect place to rest a while whilst you contemplate whether you dare buy more yarn for your stash!
We offer an inspiring range of different workshops, whether you want to catch up with your favourite designers or to improve your skills, keep checking our workshop page as we add new knitting, crochet and other classes all the time. Our workshops make a fabulous present, a treat for yourself or a great day out with friends. You'll receive delicious refreshments from our cafe too.
We also hold weekly SOS (Save Our Stitches) drop-in sessions each Friday morning.
We can cater for knitting groups and large parties of people. For further information, please visit our group visits page or call us.
