Plenty of choice is available online and in store
In among a slew of new promises for the New Year such as exercising and dieting, starting a new hobby is perhaps the most achievable. And definitely the most enjoyable!
A hobby that’s experiencing a resurgence in popularity at the moment is knitting. It may seem old-fashioned but people are picking up the needles and wool again to create a whole number of homemade garments.
Unique Bognor Regis supplies everything you’d need for giving knitting a go and have recently launch a new knitting website to expand their business.
We spoke to Amy at Unique to find out more.
Have you had an increase in customers looking for knitting equipment?
We have certainly seen an upturn in customers visiting us.
Why do you think knitting is becoming popular again this year?
Knitting has always proved popular but younger people are now taking up the hobby.
How would you recommend those with an interest first get started?
You can look for local knitting groups or join online forums.

We stock a large range of acrylic and wool from well-known brands including King Cole, Sirdar, Robin, Wendy, Stylecraft and more recently Paton’s.

Do you have any other products that could help people get involved with new hobbies this year?
We also stock a range of sewing equipment, quilting products and crochet items.
What are all the products and services you offer at Unique Workwear Printing & Embroidery ?
Our knitting and haberdashery is just one element of the business and we continue to provide our popular printing & embroidery service providing companies with their uniforms.
Which of these are most popular with customers and why do you think that is?
Both elements of the business remain strong and we are extremely excited by the increased demand for our knitting products which has prompted us to expand in that area with the website www.knittingmagic.co.uk
You’re products are certainly unique. How do you achieve this?
Retailing on the high street remains challenging and many small retailers are disappearing from town centres but shoppers still like to browse and enjoy that shopping experience which we can provide to offer something slightly different to the larger retailers.
You offer a lot of products that cater to specific needs, things that customers would not be able to find anywhere else. Can you give an example of these?
We stock a large range bespoke products that can be brought haddock.
A range of sewing equipment, quilting products and crochet items is also avaliable
