Here at TOFT we like to celebrate a shared love for knitting and crochet with special events for crafters and their familites to come and enjoy TOFT at its best. Check back to see what events are coming up next. 


OPEN DAY: TOFTfest 2020


TIME: TBC - Entry by pre-paid ticket only (tickets will go on sale early 2020)

To mark our 14th birthday we will be hosting our annual TOFTFest open days here at HQ. This is the perfect opportunity for the whole family to join Team TOFT as we throw our own special birthday party!

For 2019 we chose a fun fair theme, and we added a TOFT twist to some favourite games including 'Splat the Rat', 'Hook a Duck' and 'Wheel of Fortune' to get you into the spirit. You could also have a try at the 'Coconut Shy' and a trip down 'Tin Can Alley' among other activities. 

We were excited to offer our popular Hand Dye Taster Sessions again offered the full range of yarn weights from Fine to Chunky.

Our Learn to Knit and Crochet area was available all day and open to all ages and abilities. Our team of experts were on hand to answer any knitting or crochet queries you had, and you could get your hands on a kit for TOFT's Summer Competition of Howard the Hermit Crab.

The Fastest Leg Crochet Competition took place again each day. Yarn and 3mm hooks were provided along with the pattern and the winner was presented with a TOFT certificate to keep.
