Always fancied knitting or crocheting? Or maybe you've started and would like a little help?
Come join us in November and December. Amy and Amber will be on hand to get you started with a new hobby, or to offer support as you try out new techniques. And if you're not stuck? Well, come along and share your skills, meet some new friends and work on your current project.
This workshop is free, and open to everyone. We do ask that you bring your own yarn and needles/hooks. We will have a few spares for beginners to practise with, but it is easier if you can bring your own.
We will be putting the kettle on, so bring along a mug and a tea-bag, and we may even have biscuits to share.
Cost: Free. Bring your own needles/hooks and yarn.
Registration: No registration necessary.
Location: 464 Metcalfe St. Room left of the main entrance.

About Amy and Amber:
Amy Lawes has been knitting for over 20 years, and recently added crocheting to her lists of crafting obsessions too. She worked at Knit-knackers Yarn store until their relocation and taught crochet lessons there, as well as privately. Knitting is an obsession, and she completed 11 sweaters in 2011. In 2012 she has been taking it easier, working on knitted fish-hats, crocheted turkeys and also spinning her own yarn.
Amber Westfall learned to crochet as a child, taught by her grandmother and great-grandmother. Her first project was a sleeping bag for her Barbie. Since then she's progressed to crocheting items for real people. Amber enjoys making things up as she goes along, but will read a pattern if she has to!
