Today was the first day of the Knit & Stitch exhibition, part of Make It 2015. An enormous exhibition area is taken over by numerous stalls selling items for card making, wool, material, haberdashery, beads - here's the exhibitor's list.
There are workshops too so you can have a go yourself. Various Guilds display their handiwork - all sorts of embroidery and lacework, beekeepers, cookies, sweets, cafe . . .
. . . and then there is Loving Hands showing all the charities we support, items we have made plus we've even got a table full of woolly squares where people can rest their weary legs and join a few together to make a blanket - squares that is, not legs!
|Items for Africa - shorts made from the sleeve of an old shirt and dresses from the front and back of it.|
We meet so many kind and helpful people, it's great to know there are so many out there who want to help others in a voluntary way.
