Knit & Natter Wednesday

Just a reminder that tomorrow night is Knit & Natter night! Bring along your unfinished knitting projects, your crochet and your paper-craft - or anything else you have on the go. 

We are meeting tomorrow night: Wednesday 27th March from 6.30 – 8.30pm.

We're meeting at The Coborn Arms, 8 Coborn Road, Mile End, London E3 2DA. Click here for a map.

This EEWI-inspired group is open to anyone who feels like popping in with a project - knitting or otherwise. It will be a casual meeting, and everyone is invited – not only knitters! Bring along your stitching or paper crafts, or simply join us for a few drinks and a good catch-up. New knitters are welcome too.

Looking forward to seeing you all there!

March Meetings: Celebrating Women EEWI Style

We're going to spend our evening Celebrating Women EEWI Style this month.   Come along on 19th March prepared to share the stories of the women - living, dead or fictional - who you want us to celebrate, whether they are famous our not. We know we're pretty marvellous ourselves, so we'd like some volunteers to stand up for 5 minutes and share the stories of their inspiring women. And if public speaking isn't your thing, that's fine: we'll collect your stories and tell them for you.  We'll also have a wee quiz.  7 for 7.30 start, St Margaret's House, Old Ford Road E2.  All women welcome.  Guests sweetly asked to donate £3 to cover costs.  Refreshments available, though to please bring along nibbles/ wine/ soft drinks to share if you wish.

We'll also have a draw for couple of complimentary tickets for the Country Living Magazine Spring Fair  to give away too.  The Spring Fair, held at the Islington Business Design Centre, is somewhere to stock up on new ideas for home and garden and discover independent designers, small producers and craftspeople from across the British Isles. Very lovely and just another good reason to come along for some fun.

Oh! Mustn't forget our coffee morning in all the excitement.  You'll find us is at the Oh! Cafe at Oxford House, Derbyshire Street on Friday 22nd March from 10.30am.  Do come along and support this local social enterprise that helps disabled youngsters learn new skills, and have a cup of coffee and a chat.  Plenty of space to bring your knitting too if you fancy.

Look forward to seeing you all, lovely women of the world.
