I’ve been going to this group for a few months, & I adore it. I was a bit apprehensive about going to a pub, as i’ve experienced some shocking dives in my time, but Fox’s interior with it’s sparkly chandeliers, art work, friendly staff, wifi (& the white wine spritzer & pizza’s good too), makes going there, a great mid-wee treat! The originators of the club, are nice ladies (I used to work with one of them), & they are on hand to the complete novice to advanced knitter/crocheter/crafter, to give advice, help & lessons. ALL r welcome, it’s not just for women or ‘grannies’ but I know how to crochet a mean Granny Square!
COOPER LOCKE GALLERY. 132 HITHER GREEN LANE, HITHER GREEN. LONDON
I was told about this (new) gallery cafe, by a fellow pub knitter. The owner manager has food & pastries for people like me, who have dietary restrictions, and she has a weekly knit group on Wednesday mornings from 10.30am – 12.30pm. I’m not 100% sure about these times, so check out their Facebook page for more info. There’s a website, but nothing’s on it, yet.
I’ve not been able to go there, so can’t really review it, but if you have, or know someone who has, please feel free to let us know.
PELTON ARMS, EAST GREENWICH. WEDNESDAYS FROM 7.30PM. www.susieatthecircus.typepad.com
A drop-in for knitters & crocheters, in a relaxed atmosphere, which is good for beginners & experienced alike. I have a friend who’s a fellow peg loom weaver & Ravelry addict, who put me on to this. However, I also have a group on Wed nite, but may go there, for a change. I’ll get my friend to review it, then i’ll post it for you to read.

I think this is the first craft fair @ the Fox & Firkin, and some of us from the Wednesday club will be there, buying, selling & supporting. I’ll be there selling my wares, & I think there maybe some tables/stalls left, if your interested in taking part. Ellen’s the girl to contact or The Fox & Firkin (see Pins ‘N’ Needles above).

I’m not sure if i’ll be able to do this one, as I don’t think i’ll have enough stock for it, plus I may be working the day before.If you’re interested, contact Susie John’s, above, for more information.
That’s all for now so until the next time.
