Onward To Ulverstone - 2015 Tour Part II


Hitting the streets of Ulverstone in search of yarny goodies with my sister-in-law and we needed look no further than.....


The staff were all hands on deck and ready and willing. So helpful and knowledgeable, we only had to show interest in a yarn and they were able to show us a knitted garment in the same. They had advice about needles, patterns and everything in between. 


Everything our hearts desired...
cotton, alpaca, merino, silk, polymides, sock yarns, slubby yarns, Noro, free patterns....


And that's not all!
Quilting, fabrics, embroidery...
All types of crafting supplies!


They also had a basket of lucky dips for $2 that went straight to the Cancer Council.
This added to the fun of the day and the girls really loved the idea and got some great bargains for their gold coin



Reels of cotton, patchwork squares, needles and more....

Cranberry Crafts were incredibly generous and donated six prizes for our lucky draws on the bus.

Have you had enough yarning yet?
Well here's one more...


Thank you Cranberry Crafts.
You guys were amazing!

The girls then shopped and made some discoveries in the gift shops and split up to enjoy lunch in one of the many cafes. My posse of three highly recommend Furners Hotel and their fabulous $10 lunch menu.


Time to board the bus and find out where Neil will take us next....

    1. Sorry Kelli, I shouldn't have assumed and shared. I've removed the photos (for the benefit of readers there used to be a couple of photos in the post depicting the prizes people won from Cranberry Crafts). Once again, my apologies.
