yarn-tinted spectacles.  She is an independent knitting pattern designer with a background in Fine Art.

When she isn’t globetrotting to eat ice cream, meet friends and teach knitting, you can find her at home in London. As a teacher her main goal is to share knowledge and inspire, whatever your level of skill and confidence.

Anna will be leading two workshops at this year’s Yarningham.  Wing it Colourwork Sweater and Introduction to Marlisle.  For more information and to book a place on Anna’s workshops, please visit our website.

Yarningham workshops

The wait is nearly over.  In just a couple of weeks we will announce this year’s Yarningham workshop programme.

It has taken quite a bit of organising but we are so excited about what we have planned.  Our new bigger venue has allowed us to expand the workshop programme and bring you even more stitch based classes.

So put the date in your diaries and we’ll put the finishing touches to the programme.

 

Hootenanny review – January 2018

Last week Wednesday saw our first hootenanny of the year.

We are starting to build up a regular crew of stitchers who join us each month for some stitching and a pint.  This has got me thinking about doing some sort of public knitting project again.  I’m not sure whether it should be a knit graffiti project or something else.  Best to leave it with me for a while.  These things take time.

If you have any suggestions for projects feel free to get in touch.  We always like to hear from you.  You can send us an email or get in touch via our Facebook page.

Our next hootenanny is on Wednesday 14 February.  More details on our website.  Until then here are a few poorly lit photos from last week.

We are pleased to announce our 2018 hootenanny dates.

Our monthly stitch ups are a chance to trade tips and tricks, meet new people and plan our stitch revolution whilst supping a pint.

All our hootenannies are held at Tilt,  a multi-functional space that celebrates craft beer, speciality coffee and pinball.

There are Facebook events for each month on our page here, so you can add them to your FB calendar.

So pack up a project and come get your stitch on. Wool and needles provided.

All are welcome, you don’t even have to be good!

December Hootenanny Reminder

So next week will see our last hootenanny of the year.  It’s been really fun resurrecting our monthly meet ups.  We’ve met some wonderful stitchers and I’ve actually got some knitting done too!

We will be back in 2018 with more hootenannies, details to follow shortly.

So pack a project and come get your stitch on with us.

All are welcome, you don’t even have to be good!
