Welcome to Threads of Life, in the heart of Castle Donington.
We are passionate about knitting, crochet, and being creative with yarns, threads and fibres. Castle Donington is the village that nestles just below East Midlands airport and Donington Park. It is easily reached from the M1, M42, A50, and A453; and there is free car-parking near the shop!
The shop is a riot of the colours and textures of the wide range of knitting and crochet yarns we stock. Here you can touch and feel the yarns, look for your perfect pattern, and get expert advice.
We stock DMC embroidery threads and tapestry wools, and cross-stitch and embroidery kits, from Derwentwater Designs, Bothy Threads, Permin, and Heritage Crafts.
We also sell KnitPro knitting needles and crochet hooks, plus a wide range of ribbons, buttons, felt, and general haberdashery to help you complete your craft projects.
We arrange day workshops during the year to help you develop your skills. There is also a weekly 'Knit-in' in the shop on Wednesday afternoons when you can just come and spend a couple of hours with other knitters, over a cuppa and a bit of cake, or come for help with something specific.
