    Trunk Shows!

    Once a pre-Covid staple of TYC, we are slowly dipping our toes back into the world of Trunk Shows where we host a local indy-dyer to sell their wares in our shop. Come along and have a squish and a slice of cake! Here is a photo of Jon from Dystopic Fibre at our most recent one. Keep an eye out on our Instagram for the next one or sign up to our mailing list for the alerts!

  • The current classes we offer: Crocheted Snowflakes (Christmas Season only), Beginner Crochet, Beginner Knitting and Crocheted Flowers.


    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. We have none at the moment but they tend to sell out pretty quickly so let us know if you are interested.

    Hand-dyed Yarn

    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. 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? Everyone is welcome at our weekly knit night, Thursdays 6pm-9pm. Come along for a slice of cake and a pot of our speciality teas and knit or crochet the night away.

  • Scotland Loves Local

    The Scotland Loves Local campaign is a national initiative designed to encourage all those who live in Scotland to think local first and support their high streets safely and in line with public health guidelines. Got a gift card? Spend it here!
