Fundraising events in October 1

October is quite a busy month for yarny fundraising events in aid of MSF.

Friday 18 & Saturday 19 October

The ever popular Glasgow School of Yarn is taking place, once again, at the Mackintosh Church from 10 am to 6 pm on both days.  We will have a P/Hop stall there, manned by fabulous volunteers: Angela (angelabdc on Ravlery)  on Friday and Clare (knitsforklipskaap on Ravelry and from Yarn and Pointy Sticks) on Saturday.  Thank you so much for volunteering ladies.  If anyone fancies helping them out for an hour or two, you will be most welcome, just pop along to the stall.


Saturday 19 October

Melinda (melindaj on Ravelry) is hosting a knit and crochet day, where you can craft and natter, at Accrington Library and will be accepting donations on behalf of P-Hop.  I’m not too sure of the details, but if you wish to go and would like to know more, please contact Melinda through Ravelry.  Her user name is Melindaj.


Sunday 27 October

Loop, in Islington, is having ‘The Big Yarn Swap‘ at their beautiful shop on Sunday afternoon, from 2pm until 4pm.  Please see their Facebook page for details, but here’s a taster of what they say:

Yarn, haberdashery, knitting & Crochet books are all welcome! It will begin at 2pm with browsing beforehand from 1:30pm. The idea is that it’s a great time to de-stash to get ready for Winter knitting and crochet projects and just have a bit of fun while getting some really fantastic bargains. We will have cakes and tea and coffee but please feel free to bring some yummy cookies etc if the baking urge strikes!’

    Just had a lovely day in Glasgow, we bought quite a few of your patterns and can’t wait to get started. Thanks for such friendly chatter, and helpful hints.
