Lorna advertised her November/December friendship evenings on 2nd October and I think it took us all of 24 hours to book our visit. We did not want to go too early because we wanted to be as festive as possible, but we didn’t want to get into the midst of the December rush and vie with other bookings that the women in the group might have had.
We set out from Newtownabbey at 5.40 and it took until 7.10 to get there - soooo glad I don't have to negotiate that rush our traffic every day. the evening flew by and soon it was time to make the reverse journey but I imagine many of us will definitely be back. I have my eye on the Christmas table cloth .... Just saying.Knitting, crochet and craft are all about sharing ideas and time, helping others or encouraging those who have lost their mo-jo, assisting the inexperienced and finding new challenges for the confident crafter to make or do. It’s about the fellowship of time spent together, relaxing, the problems shared and the problems halved.
A few of us have been there on a couple of occasions in the past, including for the Macmillan coffee morning in September, and we have found that the welcome is always warm and friendly.
Lorna also sells some costume jewellery such as brooches and long necklaces to adorn your yarny creations. The shop even has a loyalty card!We were presented with festive treats of (non-alcoholic) mulled wine, mince pies and other festive goodies.
It was a real winter's treat. Thanks to all the ladies for coming along and than you Lorna for hosting.
