I am really excited to welcome Black Sheep Wools as a sponsor here at Charm About You! They are a family run crafts business based in the North West of England. They are the largest knitting store in the country and their selection of yarn is really impressive (they've won awards) and yarn lovers can check out all the yarn here! Regular readers will know I'm a quilty person and I'm excited to show you that Black Sheep Wools have more than wool.

They run the magnificent Craft Barn in Culcheth, Warrington, which houses many crafting goodies as well as a large workshop and the lovely Tea Bags Full café.

And there is a dedicated fabric room. It really is beautiful, a wondrous nook of fabric joy!

They stock fantastic lines, from great designers such as Tula Pink (and there is currently 15% off all Tula Pink fabric), Denyse Schmidt, Tim Holtz, Kaffe Fassett and more!

Of course they have lots of accessories and handy bits and bobs too! There is plenty to inspire you and get you crafting your heart away:

Lots of inspiring books! Like one of my favourite embroidery pattern books Doodle Stitching by Aimee Ray and for quilting Quiltopedia by Laura Jane Taylor

Beautiful cushion kits, these ones are by Anna Maria Horner.

I would encourage you to go and visit the website to see their full ranges and have a browse around! There is free shipping on all orders over £25 in the UK and very good international postage rates starting at just £5!
