Here at Be Sweet we’re not just an American company. We have some wonderful people in South Africa and Peru making our yarns and products. Our home base is in California yet this blog is written from Washington DC. Yes, our yarn is sold all over the country, but also all over the world! We take pride in talent from all over the globe to make us the unique company we are.
Occasionally we like to give a shout out to one of our European stores. How many of us drag our fellow traveling companions to yarn shops when we travel the world? This gives you a chance to see some interesting stores in Europe that you may not have been aware of otherwise.
DesignerCafe is a new concept-store in the centre of Utrecht in The Netherlands where collections of Dutch designers are produced, exposed and sold. You can shop in a relaxed atmosphere and purchase ready-to-wear items, order a custom-made designer outfit or buy knitting and sewing kits to make some of the designed items at home. They also have a range of fashion workshops and social events which you can join. Designers can be contacted there every Wednesday.
The knit kits contain many types of Be Sweet yarns and some of the designers have used be Sweet yarns for accessories like shawls, cowls, hats, leg warmers and arm warmers.
This is a new shop and we’re very excited to have them be such fans of Be Sweet!
Next time you find yourself in The Netherlands, stop by and say hello!
