  • Classes

    Here at The Yarn Cake, we understand how daunting getting
    into knitting and crocheting can be. Whilst there is nothing wrong with Youtube and many (many) dropped stitches, we offer some classes either on a one-off or a 4-week course.

  • Café

    Since cake and coffee do not ship well in the post we don't sell them here but if you ever find yourself in Glasgow, pop in for a slice and a squish of yarn in person! Our Knitting Nook is the perfect place to catch up with friends, family or just to indulge in a slice of cake from Bad Mum Bakery. Dogs are welcome but no cats (for obvious reasons).

  • Knit Night

    Looking for things to do when visiting in Glasgow? Just
    moved to the area and looking to make friends? Book a slot at our twice-weekly Knit Nights, Thursdays from 6pm-9pm and Sundays from 5pm to 8pm. Chat with fellow crafters, have a slice of cake (or two) and knit or crochet the night away!
