Help us spring clean our new HQ and get launch tickets (including cake and cocktails):
Aunty has secured a town centre venue through the Blackpool Culture Shops Project 2011
and needs lovely volunteers to make her HQ spick and span in time for the launch of the project on 8th July.
If you are free to lend a hand between Monday 4th and Friday 8th July, please visit the Facebook event page
and follow the instructions to mark your availability.
All of the time slots last 2 hours and you can choose more than one. All helpers will receive an invitation to the event launch on Friday 8th July at 6pm (details will be given on signup).
A few pictures of the shop in its current state:
Last night was the first Knittaz with Attitude (KWA) session at Claremont Park Community Centre, Claremont Rd, Blackpool. 22 knitwits came along to knit one, purl one and maybe drop one!
Our knittaz either brought their own work or joined in with our yarnbombing project…part 1 making snuggly little lamp-post cosies 🙂 with slogans such as:
– I love lamp (post)
– Keep Blackpool Toasty
– Big up your knitting needles
– Son of a stitch
– Aunty says “yeah boi!”
It was lovely to meet new people and see new faces, as well as learn new skills from our more experienced members (yes Pat, that’s you!). We also shared info on where to get the best deals on woolly goodness as well as inspiration for new projects.
All of this was, of course accompanied by the mother of all buffets…good times!
Thanks to all who turned up and to Caz and Mel for the yummy food, you will now be known as Buffet the Banquet Slayers.
KWA will continue to meet on the 1st Monday of every month, 6pm to 8:30pm at Claremont Park. All newcomers welcome. For more details visit the KWA Facebook page
