About Us

Founded in 2011 by Kate Roberts, A Good Yarn has come a long way from its beginnings. When Kate first started out, her passion for knitting and crochet drove her to quit her day job, and gave her the motivation to turn hard work and inspiration into a beautiful yarn shop. We now serve customers all over the Lincolnshire area and are thrilled to be a part of the ever expanding yarn industry.

“​Several years ago I began knitting again, something I hadn’t done since a teenager. Unfortunately, there was nowhere local to me to buy the types of yarns and projects I wanted to knit and certainly nowhere to attend workshops or classes.
Having had to travel all over the country for workshops and to source beautiful, good quality yarns I decided the only solution was to open my own Shop in Cleethorpes.
I had a very clear vision of what I wanted this to be – ‘more than just a wool shop’. I wanted customers to enter as strangers but leave as friends, having had a very positive experience, handled a wide selection of yarns and accessories, been given expert advice or tuition and on occasion a friendly ear. Over the past 5 years we have built up an excellent customer base, many of whom are now friends, who attend our groups, classes, events and workshops on a weekly basis.
Quality is at the core of what we do – quality service and quality products. With this in mind we are very careful about the brands we stock.”

We hope you enjoy our products as much as we enjoy offering them to you. If you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
