World Wide Knit in Public Day, Janknits, Wellingborough

World Wide Knit in Public Day (WWKIPDay) is a charity that is close to Janet’s heart.

She enthusiastically took up the challenge of producing knit and crochet squares for the largest knitting event in the world organised by the charity WWKIPDay and now has 210 20cm knit and crochet squares! These are ready to be sent to Knit for Peace to be made into blankets for those in need.

They do say behind every great knitter is a huge pile of yarn. Being passionate about knitting and needle-craft, Janet started her business, Janknits in Park Street, a few years ago, as she believes that Wellingborough deserves it’s own dedicated shop. She stocks a wide range of knitting yarns and patterns, crochet yarns and patterns, knitting pins including KnitPro, crochet hooks, cross stitch, latch hook kits, crochet craft kits and general sewing requisites. For those that do not knit, she offers a bespoke service for baby  garments and blankets.

Janet is grateful to Loving Hands Wellingborough, who hosted the Knit in Public in the community space in the Swansgate and to Bergere de France for donating yarn.

Well done to Janet, owner of one of Wellingborough’s lovely independent businesses.
