Bolton Knitting Noras are go!
We had a most successful meeting of the aforesaid Knitting Noras at Caffe Nero on Sunday afternoon; including a younger knitter, Lisa's son.
Bev and I then went and paid homage to the new haberdashery department in Whittakers department store, tucked away on the second floor, next to the beds and near the ornaments.
I think they should move the dreary menswear from the ground floor and put yarn and card making things there instead; much more colourful and it would attract the Bolton crafters in in their droves.
We were also scoping out the area because we are hatching a cunning plan to stage a public event in Whittakers or Hobbycraft for National Knitting Week 14-21 October.
I am going to poll the members and see what they think.
