Melksham business owner The Secret Crocheter, who runs crochet workshops and social crochet events from The Crochet Cabin in Melksham town centre, is organising something a little bigger than usual to celebrate WORLD WIDE KNIT(AND CROCHET) IN PUBLIC DAY!
Her monthly Yarn & Yap sessions usually involve 5 or 6 crafters with their crochet and a cuppa, putting the world to rights and discussing their next project, but this month, she’s hoping for a few more crocheters and knitters to join her.
Taking place on SATURDAY 11th JUNE (world wide knit in public day!) in the MELKSHAM MARKET PLACE from 10am - 3pm, The Secret Crocheter is hosting BIGYARN & YAP!
If you’re a crafter who enjoys a good old natter whilst crafting for an hour or two, please pop down to the market place during the day for The Secret Crocheter’s first BIG YARN & YAP! Just bring along your own chair(camping chairs are great), your current WIP (work in progress), a flask of tea and a few pennies to buy some cake. You’ll find The Secret Crocheter in the Melksham Town Council gazebos, crocheting away and nibbling on some homemade cake.
Although this is a FREE event, donations are very welcome on the day and ALL money will go to Young Melksham; a community youth organisation serving young people of all backgrounds.
And that’s not all! On the day, The Secret Crocheter and her team of crafters are also making a BIG BLANKET for the young people who receive support from Young Melksham. If you’d like to create a square for the blanket either on the day, or in the comfort of your own home, please get in touch! (email@example.com)
