Now that the hot summer holidays are over I might well be getting my knitting bag out of the spare wardrobe. I am not one of those who can click away all year round – in fact as soon as the warmest days arrive, I find it incredibly hard to concentrate on stitch patterns and tensions. This happily is not the case everywhere. Let’s take the local lakeside develoment, their ability to get members joining in local craft groups and walking groups is unsurpassed. It takes just a few volunteers to set up chairs and to arrange for a well known local stitcher, knitter, crochet fan etc. to demonstrate a few tricks of the trade and the whole place buzzes for hours.
I went to my local habidasherty after seeing their blog – they too had demonstrated skills and materials at the lakes development. Amazing how many others were inspired to get out their old knitting bags or dust off the sewing machine and just have a go!
