Darn it and Stitch

Blue Boar Street Oxford OX1 1DL

The knitting, crafting and sewing revival has hit Oxford in a characteristically fairly-traded and beautiful way in this emporium of (in the words of Edward Lear) bells and buttons, loops and lace. It’s tucked down a side street beside the town hall, and even if buttons or organic yarn aren’t your thing, there’s a range of beautiful hand-crafted products as a perfect ‘I’ve been to Oxford but couldn’t bear to buy a lousy T-shirt’ gift. Want to pick up a new skill on your trip to the city? Not a problem. Darn it and Stich now offer workshops in all shapes and sizes in the name of Pin Works. Try the Lazy Sunday Knitting classes, a gold work course (to make all your clothes sparkle) or a pattern-cutting course to learn how to make your own clothes.
