Sale and Workshops!

We've got lots going on but I know most importantly...

We're having a sale!

Just a little taster of what will be on sale over the two days...
There's going to be up to 50% off some lines of yarn, patterns, books and kits.

It's official we're FULL. 

We have some good news and some bad news... the shop is full to the brim and we’re struggling to work out places for new stock (the bad, but really it’s good news 😂) and this means we’re gonna have to have a sale. Opening hours of 10-5 on the Friday then 10-4 on the Saturday (allowing us time for a massive rearrange). There’s going to be books, yarn, patterns, kits and sample garments. Date for the diary everyone 😉

We've also got some new workshops available

For more information regarding the workshops take a look at out events and workshop section or on our facebook page under events. There will be... 

  • Learn to knit (starting with a hat!)

  • Learn to amigurumi

  • Learn to crochet (granny squares)

  • Learn to moss stitch crochet

Happy knitting and crocheting everyone! 


Rowans Focus Retailer

I’m super happy to announce that just before Christmas we were was asked to feature as focus retailer for Autumn/Winter 2018 T Rowan.

This really has come as such an honour, all the hard work and support everyone has given has paid off - to all our loyal and lovely customers thank you so much! I suspect this is all down to Katie, our Rowan rep, meeting you all and seeing how much of a community we’ve made Ippikin at our Rowan events. Both Rowan events in 2018 were such a success, it hopefully means we can have lots more and be even more involved with our favourite yarn company.

Please take a look in the Rowan newsletter to hear more about our story and how I came to have my dream job. I’ll attach our article, but the newsletter is so worth having a read of for all yarn news and inspiration.



As some of you may know, I have recently taken over Ippikins. Having worked in the magical shop for 2 years, I couldn't resist staying here when Lesley and Paul decided to retire. 

With all this I hope to keep the essence of Ippikin, being in Much Wenlock for nearly 13 years now, everyone loves it and wouldn't want it any other way! I will be trying to make Ippikin more of a social hub - who doesn't want to combine knitting with copious amounts of cake and chatting. 

In this change over (it's not even been 2 months yet), I will try and do as much as I can to live up to Paul and Lesley's legacy. We're going to be having more events, workshops and I'm going to be starting a regular newsletter to keep you all updated. New yarns, new books and patterns - the lot I hope. If you have any suggestions or even questions, don't hesitate to get in contact or pop in. Myself, Moyra and June are still here and hopefully the odd appearance from Paul as well. 

Happy knitting everyone,
