Knit-a-thon: Bank Holiday Monday 29 August, 12-2pm
There's a lot of excitement at Bridport Arts Centre about the knitted garden arriving here next week. The Blooming Marvellous exhibition is going to take over the building - filling the Allsop Gallery, the foyer gallery and the cafe! Lots of people are talking about it around the town, including the Bridport Bag Ladies who contributed to the garden and who will be one of the groups helping to show people how to knit and crochet in the gallery on Saturdays. Drop in any time between 12-2pm, there will be a range of patterns available and somebody there to help you.
On the last day of the exhibition - Bank Holiday Monday 29 August, 12-2pm - bring your needles and join in the fun as we attempt to fill the forecourt with as may knitters as possible. Wool will be available, and some spare needles if you don't have any.
We hope to see you over the summer.

A Suggestion from Pauline
It would be good if we can develop a good size knitted picnic area while the garden is at Bridport so we would need knitted food (cakes, sandwiches, sausage rolls etc.) plates, cups, bottles of drink, BBQ, a large knitted picnic blanket. I have ordered a couple of books with knitted food patterns for everyone to use which will be left at Bridport Art Centre and patterns can be photocopied.
