Voila! Veolia!

Life throws us some pretty random curve balls, my friends. It’s wonderful when we actually catch the opportunity and run with one!

A few months ago, I wandered into a knitting shop just happy that it was right in my neighbourhood. The knitting shop owner was looking to host a knitting circle and I was the unlikely leader of a rag-tag nomadic group who went from pub to pub on a semi – regular basis. Next thing I knew, we had a weekly group in our very own club house with the most colourful bunch of lassies  (and from time to time those rare knitting/crochet dudes) this side of the Atlantic.

Suddenly,  YARN BOMB! Talk about whirlwind escapades! We found ourselves knitting & crocheting patriotic  items to string up in Mansfield Town centre for the celebration of the Queen’s 90th birthday. Our little yarn store has become Queenie Knits HQ. This is a bonafide event sponsored by the local oooooficials. Which leads us to…

…our group on hand to help out members of the public who might wander in looking to learn a new skill. Our group were invited to use Veolia ‘s meeting room to use as a venue to teach.

We will be there on Fridays with our needles and hooks ready to teach, chat and beguile newcomers with our whimsical conversation. In addition, the public will be offered the opportunity to have a look at the Veolia Recycling process. You can learn more at http://www.veolia.co.uk

We are looking forward to the next date. We were able to entice a new recruit to our motley crew… just like the Darkside of the Force. And just like the Dark side, we have cookies.

The dates of our sessions will be posted on the calendar of this blog. They are free to the public. All we ask is that you bring your own yarn. However, if you are a complete novice and just want to have a go, we will have yarn, hooks, needles and tools for you to borrow. image

Hope to see you there!
