About Barnyarns

Barnyarns was originally established by a City and Guilds student in April 1986 who was fed up of traipsing from place to place in search of that elusive thread or special piece of fabric. Then Based in Petersfield, Hampshire, Adele had a passion for Yorkshire and regularly traveled 'up north' combining company business with visits to friends and family.

Today, the company is owned by Jonathan and Charlotte MacPherson. Operating from premises in Ripon, North Yorkshire, Barnyarns supplies a huge range of products and threads from all over the world catering for specialist machine and hand embroiderers, quilters and crafters. We firmly believe we offer top quality products at a competitive price backed by a friendly, efficient, hard working and knowledgeable workforce.

Whether we are packing orders, stocking the warehouse shelves, talking to customers on the phone or teaching in workshops we will try to answer any question you may have, and if we can't, we'll try to find someone that can!
