Saturday November 14th, 2020
On Saturday 14th November a national event to celebrate bricks-and-mortar yarn shops returns for a seventh year and Rainbow Valley is joining in the fun.
The event is usually held in May but, due to Covid19, had to be postponed.
The November event is going to be a little different to usual as safety regulations prohibit us from filling the shop with people.
Instead, the event will be spread out over a week and held mostly online but there will be some free patterns and special offers available in the shop.
The Facebook YSD Shopping Spree
This will run from Saturday November 14th at 10.00am to Saturday November 21st at 1.00pm
There will be exclusive special offers for a limited time.
Make sure that you visit the event page and mark yourself as "Going" to recieve news of the offers as they are released.
The Instagram Game
Covid19 has been hard for small independent businesses, especially those with no online presence.
Many have been forced to close their doors forever.
Your LYS is no different. Although people have turned to crafts during this stressful time, it has been the bigger, online suppliers who have benefitted.
Now is the time to turn that around.
We have a fun Instagram game which will run throughout November.
Take photos of your LYS and promote it online following a series of prompts, one for each day in November.
Not every day is LYS related and you do not have to do them all but it is fun, if a little challenging, to find something prompt related to post each day.
The game is hosted by Rainbow Valley,
Unravel & Unwind and
Vera & Bess
with the support of Lets Knit.
To join in, follow us on Instagram to watch out for the information which will be released during October.
Meet the Designers
We plan to host online chat sessions with each of the designers who will be at the shop. The schedule for this will be released as soon as it is finalised.
And, of course, I will be there with Fluffy Puppy.
Gorgeous FREE patterns will be available on the day. They will also be available by email.
