Thread: Warwick Wool shop set to close.

  1. #1

    Unhappy Warwick Wool shop set to close.

    The loss of this valued wool shop that I have relied on over the years is soon to close, really saddens me.
    There just aren't may of these old fashioned, friendly and very helpful shops left.

    I can't remember the last time I saw one.

    Do people still knit? I always preferred jumpers knitted by my mum to the shop bought ones. Not only were they warmer, they lasted longer.

    A real shame, and the district council doesn't seem to have helped matters.

    Knitting is probably not as widely popular as it used to be, though when I used to visit the wool shop there were usually several customers ahead of me waiting to be served, rarely I went in there and was first to be served.
    I still knit when I get the chance, I have a jumper on the needles at the moment , and I also knitted a few poppies for St. Mary's Church in Warwick. They received all in all about 70,000 poppies. I didn't knit
    near 1000, but I donated what I knitted. There is a craft club, including knitting in Leamington which I was thinking of joining, so I can meet some knitting ladies.

    Thankfully, there is still a good shop in Leamington that sells wool and fabrics, which I use all the time if I am making curtains , etc. But I still think the wool shop in Warwick were the cat's whiskers.
