Breaking news 

Here is some advanced notice about our Hookery group's WORLDWIDE KNIT IN PUBLIC DAY 2017. This year again it will be in the Foyer at the Theatre at the Mill, Newtownabbey.
Due to holidays within the group we are holding it a week earlier than the official date. We are booked in for Saturday 3rd June and it will run approximately from 10.30am - 2.00pm.

There is a cafe which serves scones, traybakes, paninis and sandwiches with tea, coffee and soft drinks.
We'll have a think about what we can do to make it a little bit more fun so if anyone has any ideas just let me know.  Raffle?  Exhibition of work? Demonstration?  Pattern/book swaps?  Stash/odds and ends swop?
Please share this post and hope to see you and your friends there.

    1. Hello Helen Jean, yes anyone can come along and will be very welcome. Are you local to Newtownabbey? There is a link to the location in the post above.

      To make things a bit more interesting we have decided to go for a 'floral' theme and ladies are knitting and crocheting flowers, floral teapot cosies, blankets with flowers on etc. So if you have anything along those Iines feel free to bring it along. We'll set everything out for a bit of a show and a conversation starter. But if you just want to come along and knit/Crochet with us then you'll be very welcome.

      There is a coffee shop for refreshments and ample free parking, or Mossley West train station is adjacent. More news will be posted here between now and then.

      Looking forward to meeting you.
