Handmade Studios is a beautiful yarn and knitting / crochet accessories shop specialising in Hand Dyed yarn, located in Rowlands Castle, next to an excellent tea shop, making a visit into an experience.
Linda Kirkbride MA, the owner, says
“I have always loved textiles and with a background in textile arts, I find that when I open the door of my shop, for me, it’s like walking into a sweet shop ! We endeavour to keep our stock fresh and interesting. A special feature is our selection of Independent Hand Dyed yarns with makers like Baa Ram Ewe, Truly Hooked, Riverknits, Easy Knits, Unbelieva-wool, Manos Del Uruguay and others
We have a stock of ‘commercial’ yarns such as Rowan, Debbie Bliss, Noro, Bergere de France, WYS, Erika Knight, Patons and Alafosslopi.
We stock knitting and crochet accessories by brands such as Knitpro and Addi and have a small haberdashery section.
Every Friday afternoon we host a free Knit and Natter session, for any level of experience.
We run a programme of workshops.” See ‘workshops’ above.
