The Knit Studio is an exquisite sanctuary for crafters of any kind, hidden in the cloister of the historic 13th century Blackfriars Priory in Newcastle upon Tyne. Here, you will find carefully selected beautiful yarns, a fantastic choice of crochet and knitting books and magazines, and a great coverage of knitting and craft accessories.
Owned by Anne Makepeace, the Knit Studio opened in September 2010, and is located just behind The Gate complex and China Town. The directions are available.
