free wool

A little while ago Deirdre Figueiredo from Craftspace asked if anyone from the group would like some wool which they had leftover from Shane Waltener Garland #21 as part of Taking Time exhibition at BM&AG.

Well it seems that it wasn’t all claimed.

So when it came to ideas of how to get wool for our knit in I had a plan.  And as you can see from the photo above we are now proud owners of 4 reels of coloured carpet wool originally donated by Brintons of Kidderminster

The wool will be used for our knit in @ Created in Birmingham pop up shop on 10 & 11 April 2010.  More details on that to come soon

Wolverhampton Art Gallery

Just got back from my visit to Wolverhampton Art Gallery to prepare for our Knitted Easter Egg Hunt on 31st March

If you’ve not been there before it’s a wonderful space right in the middle of town.  Our event will be held underneath the huge skylight just by the gift shop.

Unfortunately the upper exhibition areas will be closed to the public during our event.  However, at the start of the evening there will be a short tour around the Jann Haworth exhibition in the Pop Gallery.  I was lucky enough to get a guided tour this afternoon

(sorry about the dark picture – you’re not allowed to take pictures but I was given special permission and felt guilty taking too many while other people were there)

So it looks like all things are set for 31st March.

After my meeting and quick tour I had lunch in the gallery cafe.  I can highly recommend their chocolate cake which was heavenly

stitches and hos on Radio WM (again)

stitches and hos were on the radio again.  Our Easter Egg Hunt event at Wolverhampton Art Gallery got a mention on Radio WM drivetime on Wednesday.

You can listen to it here (we’re at 51mins in).  After our mention the DJ then plays Pet Shop Boys – Always On My Mind.  I couldn’t have done a better link myself

Don’t forget our one off special at Wolverhampton Art Gallery is 31st March, 6-9pm.  For more details look here
