August is charity month!!

We’ve been contacted by The Mare & Foal Sanctuary to ask if we can help

Mare & Foal knitting

So of course I said YES!!!!

So….. you have 2 weeks to come up with an animal theme knitting project!!

If you don’t finish on the night you can bring it to our September meeting & I will post them all off together.

I’m sure you’ll agree this is a great cause & one that we haven’t helped before.

If you don’t want to join in just bring your own project along.

Next Meeting Tuesday 2nd April – Changes

I asked for your thoughts about Make, Do and Mend & you gave them to me!

Thanks so much to those who took the time to give me feedback

So you find the venue good, you think the price is good, you like the time …..basically you all enjoy coming!

However you would like to see more tutorials ….. so from April I plan to organise monthly tutorials again

Of course we will still have our old favourites for charity….. The Big Knit…. Poppy Appeal

I’m also hoping to come up with some Make, Do and Mend ideas……  after all this why the group started!

As always you can bring your own projects if you don’t fancy joining in.

The biggest changes will be the price & booking

Our membership is now cancelled.

This is due to some of the shops closing that gave us discount & also others forgetting we get discount!

There is now just one price £3.50

If your membership card is still valid I will honour the discounted price until it expiries 

You don’t have to book online…… just turn up on the night

So without further ado….
