If you have a look at Limerick.ie you’ll spot that Lou will be at the Showcase on 23rd March ready, willing and able to chat with people about World Wide Knit in Public Day, what goes on at a Stitch’n’Bitch meet up and she’ll also show folks how to do some basics in knitting and crochet.
If things go to plan, and we sincerely hope they do, the lovely Liz should also be in attendance at the Showcase. Fingers crossed that her lovely brood will allow her the time off from parental duties to share her love of spinning and show those interested how to use one of her spinning wheels.
Lou attended a planning meeting on Monday in relation to the Showcase. A question was asked which gvae her an idea, which of course she shared out loud and then committed herself to. The idea? To yarnbomb a pillar so that posters, flyers and such can be attached to it without using adhesives.
One of the organisers has since given Lou the chance to opt out of this plan, which is nice, but some schemes just have to be attempted.
We were going to share pictures of her progress here but WordPress is refusing to upload photos.
If you’d like to see how Lou is progressing with her idea follow this link to her blog post about it.
It’s been lovely to see email from interested people about our learn and share event on 24th March in Zest Cafe, located in the Limerick City Gallery of Art.
Our event is pretty much an open invite to anyone interested in any form of portable craft. Regardless of the fact that most of our current members knit and crochet, our group is delighted to meet people who practice other types of craft.
If you’re a complete novice and would like to try your hand at knitting and/or crochet, then we’ll be delighted to show you the basics.
If you’re a proficient knitter or crocheter you may well be able to show us a thing or two!
Maybe you’re new to Limerick and would just like to make new friends? If that’s the case, then come along and say hi! Our group is a friendly one and always glad to make new friends.
