Situated the bustling market town of Bedale, North Yorkshire you’ll find ‘new jersey’ an exciting and friendly wool shop, where you’ll receive a warm welcome.

My name is Jane Bates and I’m a ‘knitaholic’, knitting in class (when I wasn’t supposed to), knitting in the office (when I shouldn’t really have), knitting in the car when I should have had my hand on the wheel (just kidding).

After secretarial and administrative jobs I opened the door to my dream on 21st May 2011. Since opening I’ve had fantastic feedback from knitters and non- knitters who’ve popped in to browse, take a seat and soak up the surroundings.

I look forward to meeting more of you at my weekly Tuesday afternoon knit’n’natter drop-in from 1.30pm to 5.00pm and Friday afternoon from 1.30 to 4pm. If you can’t make either afternoon, I will also be open from 6.30pm to 9.00pm every Monday evening. Come along and share your expertise, ideas and stories. We’ll have a great time.

I will also be putting on a range of workshops, please call or email me for further details.

For those of you further afield, please call me on 01677 427746 to discuss your requirements.

Please visit me Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday (closed on Wednesdays) at ‘new jersey’, or seven days a week on the web site.

Best wishes and happy knitting.
