Stitch Directory's Aims

The main objective of the Stitch Directory is to support independent retailers and suppliers of craft supplies. If your store falls into any of the below categories, consider adding your business to this art and craft directory for FREE:

Benefits to Businesses

At the School of Stitched Textiles, all our City and Guilds textile courses, along with our beginner online craft courses, require students to supply their own materials and equipment. As such, we are regularly asked about the best independent craft shops. Our Stitch Directory allows businesses to put their stores in front of an active community of shoppers, artists, makers and crafters.

Due to being completely FREE to use, haberdashery companies near you can add their listing and make regular amends at no cost.

Benefits to Artists

Artists and crafters can use the Stitch Directory to find stores and suppliers within their area. Type your location or product into the search and you’ll find textile shops near you.

Northern Yarn

9 Kings Arcade, Lancaster LA1 1LE

Northern Yarn is an independent wool shop based in Lancaster, with a strong focus on natural fibres from British producers and selected yarns from further afield. Northern Yarn carries its own 100% traceable line, processed from local flocks of sheep, owner Kate Makin visits local farms and gets to know the shepherds and sheep, before hand picking the best fleeces for their blends and paying farmers a fair price for the wool.

Northern Yarn take pride in being a team of avid crafters - who make sure they know and sample their yarns (purely for research purposes!) to be in the best position to recommend the right yarn for your projects! With award winning brands like West Yorkshire Spinners, Jamiesons of Shetland, Garthenor Organic, Regia, The Fibre Company and John Arbon; hand dyed yarns from RiverKnits, Life In The Long Grass and Manos del Uruguay - to the breed specific farm yarns from Lancashire Farm Wool, Shear Delight, Crookabeck Herdwick, Icelandic Léttlopi, Armscote wool and Wenning wool - you'll find yarns here you can't buy anywhere else. Want to knit a gansey? We have cones of British produced Frangipani 5 ply waiting for you!

We stock Hiya Hiya, Addi, KnitPro and ChiaoGoo needles and hooks with Eucalan wool wash or locally produced bars from The Soap Dairy - both containing lanolin to help protect your garments.

Northern Yarn have hosted several events both online and in person; celebrating women in wool, British yarns and farms - you can see a recording of the last event on YouTube.

Not just a wool shop, you’ll find gifts from local farms and businesses; handmade soaps, shampoo bars, illustrated tea towels and cards and prints from local photographers. With weekly social knit and crochet sessions and many classes and workshops, Northern Yarn supports a lively community of crafters - come and join the flock!
