With its beginnings in 1992 and based in the'Old Temperance Hall' in the Monmouthshire village of Magor, Undy Yarn Crafts, as local agents for Bonnies Wools of Birmingham, supplied yarns and accessories principally to machine knitters, local textile colleges, clubs and schools.
Between 1992 and 2010 Anne and David took Undy Yarn Crafts to exhibitions (including venues such as the NEC, GMEX, the Bath & West Showground) in fact all over the UK from Perth in Scotland to Cornwall in the south, where they met and enjoyed the company of customers, knitwear designers and trade colleagues from all over the country.
Encouraged and inspired by Olive (David's mother), a seamstress and lifelong devotee of the knitting needle and pioneer of the early domestic knitting machines of the 1950's, and Anne's family background and childhood memories of fine, delicate crochet work and needlepoint, Anne and David continue to learn about new and interesting techniques, tools and yarns and in turn hopefully use that knowledge to inspire and encourage their customers.
The business re-located to slightly larger premises in Chepstow in July 2013 and stocks yarns from most of the major UK suppliers, spinning and weaving accessories from Ashford, knitting machines from Silver Reed and plenty of other yarn and fibre craft related goodies. Anne is also busy producing commissioned knitwear, mostly for babies and younger children and giving 1 to 1 tuition to aspiring machine and hand knitters.
