One year more, local yarn shops are celebrating: Local Yarn Store Day is coming!
LYS Day is an event that highlights the work of brick and mortar wool shops, small businesses dedicated to empowering the illusion of knitters, crocheters, and yarn lovers by providing materials, patterns, fibers, and colors specially chosen for them to keep learning and enjoying with their hobby.
Last year we could not celebrate it as it deserved. In fact, due to the first lockdown of 2020, LYS Day had to be postponed.
This year the situation still does not allow us to have large parties or gatherings of people in the store, but nothing will prevent us from celebrating it in some way.
If you discovered the pleasure of knitting during the lockdown, how relaxing crochet is, or you enjoyed any activity related to wool, LYS Day is also your day. LYS Day is the day you celebrate that you have a place to go and buy the materials that make you happy, where you find people like you, who understand the emotion of seeing your project finished and the illusion of starting something new with your hands; a place where you can answer questions, get ideas and ask for advice on different types of yarns, crochet hooks or knitting needles.
More experienced knitters and crocheters find in their local yarn shop the skeins they always bought; and also surprise themselves trying new textures, rediscovering the old pleasure of winding a hank, and jump to play with the colors of hand-dyed skeins when they see the garments of fellow crafters in the store.
Your yarn shop is a place of complicity and illusion. And in Miss Kits, we are happy to be that, your yarn shop.
Soon we will also be your LYS not only in Barcelona but also in Madrid. After several months of hard work, renovations, and a lot of organization, we can already announce that we will open Miss Kits Madrid at the beginning of May. Miss Kits in Madrid will be your local yarn shop in the city center.
We will not be able to celebrate Local Yarn Store Day in Madrid this year yet, but the shop Barcelona shop will be open this Saturday, April 17th, from 10h to 14h.
And as you already know, Miss Kits is your yarn shop wherever you live. So during the weekend of April 17th-18th, all online purchases will get a 10% discount with the code LYSDAY2021.
If you come to buy a Barcelona brick-and-mortar shop on Saturday, April 17th in the morning and you have an account with us, we will apply you the discount too.
Happy Local Yarn Store Day! Thank you for letting us be your yarn shop.
