Return of the Knit & Natter Group & Crafts!!

Post by Evil Edna » Sun Apr 28, 2013 10:49 pm

After last years success with the Knit and Natter get together I have spoken to Ian and we will be meeting in the main Marquee Thursday & Friday afternoons 2pm onwards. :D
Bring your Knitting, Crocheting or any other craft you enjoy doing!
I will again be bringing spare knitting needles crochet hooks and yarn so if you want to come and learn a new skill come along!! I would add I am left handed so would have trouble teaching right handed folk! :roll:
Let me know if anyone would be interested in learning then I have an idea of numbers.
Also last year a few people asked about making a small donation to the nominated charity so any small donations will be appreciated.

Plus I have it on good authority that Bongo Baz will be bringing his survival bracelet kits & I believe Trish has spoken to Ian about craft stalls but she will outline the plans on those!
So bring a chair and join in!! =D>
I have even crocheted some bunting for the event!! :lol:

Zoe's been teaching herself to crotchet from YouTube videos over the last day or two - she'll be there.

There might also be a baby to pass round if folk are willing to put down their needles... ;)

Hi
As Edna said there will be knit and natter and Baz doing his braclets, also Sue Harvey will be running work shops in using fimo.
On the Friday the above in the marque and if any crafters want to have a stall to sell their wares. On the Saturday weather permitting craft stalls will be outside for the vicar's tea party.
Can't remember if it was 10% or 20% of takings to go to this years choosen charity.
I have spare tables if any one wants.
Hope Ian and Edna that I have got this right.
Trish

Ps if any one interested in having a table please put name down on this page. Thanks

I've not booked my place at the bash yet, but am hoping to come. If I make it in time on the Friday I'd love to meet the knit and natter group! I can't knit but can crochet so will bring along whatever I'm working on. :)
