knit in @ Created in Birmingham shop

Over the weekend stitches and hos staged a knit in at Created in Birmingham pop up shop.  We took over their sofas and invited people to come and join us, learn to knit and help us create a knitted sign for the shop.

The weekend was a great success with lots of new faces and new knitters.  Unfortunately our goal of knitting Created in Birmingham wasn’t reached but we can finish off what we started at our next monthly meet.

I want to say a big thank you to Pete Ashton and everyone at Created in Birmingham shop for being lovely hosts.  Thanks also to Commercially Inviable DJ’s, Fox, Catweasel, Heat and Light and Kings Heath Radiophonic Workshop for DJ’ing.  A special thanks to Shady Bard for their beautiful acoustic set and Carolyn Morton for yummy cake stand.

Here are some pictures from the weekend

stitches and hos @ Wolverhampton Art Gallery

Right then our 2nd event of last week was at Wolverhampton Art Gallery.

For our one off special we invited the lovely ladies from Sugarfoot Stomp to provide sounds to stitch to and held a knitted easter egg hunt around the gallery. The egg hunt was great – a lot of bemused knitters searching round the ground floor of the gallery to spot the knitted eggs.

Thanks to everyone who turned up.  A very special thanks to Rebecca Belcher who helped out manning the cake stall and teaching the youth forum group to knit.  Another special thanks to Kate Andrews for inviting us to the gallery.

stitches and hos Mar 2010

It was a busy week last week for stitches and hos.  2 events in 2 days – phew what a whirlwind.

First off was our regular monthly knitting hootenanny on Tuesday night.  A big thank you to all who came along especially to Soesen and Tessa (DJ’s Soesmix and Magpie Brown respectively) for providing sounds to stitch to.  If you like what you heard they have a regular weekly show on Rhubarb Radio which you can listen to at any time.
