Time passes rather quickly doesn't it! Scarily so sometimes, or maybe it's just because we're having fun...
The new unit is proving to be a big success, we can fit many more people in at a time without feeling like we have to step out of it to make room. This is a vast improvement on the last unit, lovely as it was. We have now run a number of workshops in the new space, and these have felt much better as well. Teri's settle (half-inched from her kitchen) is really earning its keep, with it's brand new ticking cushion it makes for very comfortable workshop seating.
So, speaking of workshops, let me tell you about them. We had a guest tutor come in to run " Get Your Steek On". This sold out almost immediately, with a waiting list, so we ran it again a month later. Both times this class proved to be very informative and a lot of fun, and we have had feedback from several of the participants proudly showing off their finished, steeked, garments. We will run this class again later on in the year, so keep an eye on this site, and our Facebook page, for updated information. I might just have to join in next time.
We are getting up to speed with our other classes, and have run "The Joy Of Sox" and some beginners crochet, spinning and knitting classes. More dates coming soon.
Our latest venture, as a result of frequent demand, is a monthly yarn circle. We call it "Wool Fiddlers United" as we don't want anyone to feel left out as they might if it was a "Knit 'n' Natter" type affair. Plus of course we have Becca's extreme allergy to words such as 'crafty' and 'natter' to contend with. These events are running on the first Saturday of each month, from 4pm, with the next scheduled for 1st July. Just bring your current woolly Work In Progress (WIP), and £1 towards tea/coffee, and join a group of like-minded people for a happy hour or two.
As ever, if you have a particular problem or enquiry bring it along to the shop any time, and we'll do our best to sort it out.
