Creative Moments exhibition is open for business

On now, at the Shoalhaven City Arts Centre, until 19 October.

 It is also international spinning & weaving week, so the girls are demonstrating on the wheel, and there is a scarf on a loom as part of the exhibition as an interactive display.

More Photos from our World Wide Knit in public day

Here are some more photos from our WWKiP day :) including Marcia and Jane spinning, Joel the apprentice carpenter from Sanctuary Point (illustrating that what Grandma teaches you stays with you - good lad), Clair in instructor mode and the girls from Wernick Craft Cottage.

The girls from Wernick Craft Cottage

A momentary break for coffee

Joel the apprentice carpenter from Sanctuary Point - making his Grandma proud - good on you lad, we were happy to meet you

Everyone was intrigued by Joel's skill with the needles
Everyone was interested in something - this was the whole point of getting out there and knitting and spinning in public when it comes down to it. Fantastic work everyone and thanks to all those who stopped to chat and those who had a knit or crochet lesson - see you the same time next year.

A big day out

We had a great day out yesterday in Junction Court, seeing old friends, meeting new friends, generally having fun ...more to come tomorrow as well ...

Newspaper articles aplenty

A bit of publicity was achieved prior to Saturday's knit in at Junction Court, great effort girls

Kerry Sutherland made covergirl on the Nowra News...

... and also in Wednesday's South Coast Register, the two Kerry's, Clair, Libby, President Jane and a passer by made the Community Scene section.

Counting the Stitches... two, three, four, five

Well, it was World Knitting Day on Saturday 8 June, and World Wide Knit in Public Week activities are on the needles all around the globe. There are over 617 registered Knit in Public participants including us here in Nowra.

We hope that the low pressure system exhausts itself by Friday so that we can have a spectacular sunny day (or at least a moderate and no rain day) on Saturday for our gathering at Junction Court.

Hope to see many people there, with yarn on their needles and a big dose of community spirit.
