Shop profile: Sharp Works

Last on our list of participating shops, but certainly not least, is Sharp Works in Herne Hill. Just steps away from the Herne Hill train station, this gem is well worth a visit! Here's what they have to say...

How would you describe your shop's atmosphere in three words?
Colourful, inspiring, friendly
What makes you different from other yarn stores?
We write and sell our own patterns. We have an extensive range of yarns, prioritising natural fibres whilst offering something all for all budgets and project type.  We are experienced, enthusiastic knitters and offer advice to customers on a daily basis.
What is the most popular type of yarn or product that you carry?
It's really difficult to say which is the most popular yarn.  It changes with the seasons although there are some which are always popular, such as sock yarn, chunky yarn and double knitting of all types.  We also sell darning wool everyday!
What expertise or classes do you offer to your customers?
We run a range of knitting and crochet classes, from beginners to more advanced techniques and making up and finishing.  We are always ready to help customers with questions about their projects, and people drop in most days for support.  We offer advice with pattern and yarn choices suitable for all abilities and age groups.
What is notable about your part of town/your location?
We are right in the middle of Herne Hill, in a small area of independent shops.  We're very close to Brockwell Park and within walking distance of Brixton and Dulwich.

We must add that there is also a fabulous pub not far away with burgers that are to die for...

That wraps up our profiles of the shops for this year. Stay tuned for registration going live next week - we'll announce the exact timing on Monday!
