Don’t forget that next Wednesday is our monthly stitch up.  We know that it’s Valentines Day, but you love your knitting too, don’t you?

So pack up a project and come get your stitch on.  All are welcome – you don’t even have to be good!

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!

October Hootenanny

Last night saw the return of our monthly hootenannies.   It was great to meet some new stitchers and to see some old faces.   There was stitching aplenty, lots of tea drunk and a discussion about the new Blade Runner film.

Here’s a couple of pics from last night, including one of me proving that the seemingly small section of ribbing I was knitting will in fact go around my large head.
