Knit and Natter
Well yesterday evening found me at the local Knit and Natter group, despite the fact I can't knit.
The recently opened Make Do & Mend, situated at the rear of Truly Madly Vintage, is a great indie start up, run by the lovely Hannah. Make, Do & Mend seek to share the crafts and trades that are being lost, to provide the opportunity for people to learn new skills, remember old skills, get excited about being creative and pass skills on to others,offering workshops, sewing machine hire by the hour and most importantly a friendly welcome to everyone.
There are different types of workshop each night Mon - Fri 7-9pm, check here for details.
Last night there was a choice of either 'You've Never Felt So Good' workshop or there was the knitting group to sit with. I opted to join the knitters, albeit with my bows to sew. I was immediately made to feel welcome by everyone in the group, there was plenty of tea or wine on offer, drank from the finest vintage crockery. Thanks to the lovely people, I chatted more than I sewed, but that was all good.
I will be definitely returning again next week, and maybe making some new friends and learning some new skills.
