'Stitch & Bitch' - Knitting & crochet meet up?

  • October 28, 2012 · 3:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

VENUE

IFC mall (the one with CitySuper in) and in the lift it should say 'P4 Roof Garden' MAP here & more info on this blog here.
The roof garden is a public space with tables & chairs, but there are bars there where you can order drinks or food too but it is absolutely fine to bring your own.

In case it is raining or awfully windy / cold, I'd like to have a PLAN B venue but I can't think of anywhere nearby, anyone with suggestions? Any coffee shops nearby that won't be that busy? Please suggest below !

THINGS TO BRING
- Food & drinks (as well as any utensils! i.e. folk, tissue, wipes etc)
- Your crafty tools i.e scissors, knitting needles, wool/yarn etc 
- An extra jumper/sweater/cardigan as we'll be outdoors & it'll be windier than street level

PREPARATION
Please do some preparation before coming as there won't be any official teachers or professionals to help (as far as I know!), I found these decent videos but there are loads more on Youtube.

    I love your idea Alison ! I can propose my flat if we are less than 5 or 6. Or even at Victoria Park, Causeway Bay. There are some little cute isolated places in the middle of the trees :)

    This is a great idea and exactly what I wanted to do when I started the group. But please can people come prepared and with an idea of what they'd like to do and maybe with some materials. I'm trying to learn crochet myself and there are lots of shops around to get materials from. (i think there is a link on the group deacription) I can embroider and am happy to teach people the basics but would love to learn some new skills from other people. Thanks Alison!

    Really happy to hear about this event, I was planning to learn crochet but kept putting it off. It's been a while since I did knitting, but will try my best to help. Does anyone else want/need to go buy wool/needles? I'd like to go together, if anyone is interested.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
