If you are out and about in London tomorrow (Saturday 5 September 2015), beware the knitters! 120 knitters and crocheters will be out and about around the city on the Great London Yarn Crawl. This will be my third time on the yarn crawl, which is held in aid of Refuge. You can read here about what a great time I had last year.
(Just some of the yarn I squished on the Great London Yarn Crawl last year.)
For those of you who have tickets for the yarn crawl, I’m looking forward to meeting some of you, and for those of you who are reading this and wishing you had tickets, there may still be some solace to be had if you can get to London, as there’s another fantastic event happening alongside the yarn crawl, organised by Yarn in the City (who organise the Great London Yarn Crawl).
They are putting on a Pop-Up Marketplace for one day only. It’s taking place from 12-7 on Saturday 5 September 2015 at the Chelsea Old Town Hall and tickets will be available on the door (for £10 – children under 16 go free if accompanied by an adult). The marketplace will showcase not only some of London’s wonderful yarn shops and independent yarn businesses, but also a range of fantastic sellers from all over the UK. It should be well worth a visit to admire some wonderful supplies, experience an indie designer showcase, take part in a knitting-relating art project A Memorable Yarn with Brenda Dayne and possibly do some shopping! If you have any knitted items you have made which you would like to donate to charity, Yarn in the City will also be collecting those at the marketplace for Knit for Peace.
So, empty your piggy bank and come along if you’re able to get to London tomorrow. For more details, visit the Yarn in the City website. Perhaps I’ll see you there?
