New GLYC sponsor: Rowan and Coats

We are sure that all of you are familiar with the lovely yarns of Rowan, right? Well, this year we are thrilled to have the lovely people at Coats Crafts UK sponsoring the GLYC to the tune of a ball of Rowan yarn for every yarn crawler! 

There's a huge selection of yarns that will be packed up for you, including Drift, Rowan Tweed Aran, some Cashsoft 4-ply, Kid Silk Haze, baby Merino Silk DK and many more!

Once you've gotten your yarn, be sure to head over to the Coats website, and check out their range of free patterns and tutorials. The Rowan website also has a number of patterns exclusively available online, many from the archives that are also free to download if you register on their website. They even have a mystery knit-a-long designed by Kaffe Fassett starting on October 1st with four different colour options!

Many thanks tCoats and Rowan for their wonderful generosity to this year's Yarn Crawlers! And if you're in the London area, Rowan are having a coffee morning at Peter Jones on thisThursday, 11 September, from 11:00 am to 12:30 pm in the Top Floor restaurant on the sixth floor. There will be an opportunity to see a large number of garments from Rowan's new Autumn Winter collection. Tickets are available for £5 and include refreshments. And, all attendees will receive a 10% voucher to use on Rowan products all day.

Maybe we'll see you there! :)
