Lucky Penny March!

I'm wondering where the time went as its only like, a week til the next Lucky Penny! Heleen has written a great description of what Lucky Penny is all about in the previous post if you're a little clueless about this 'coffee, cake, craft' business. So please pack up your knitting/embroidery/jewellery/other craftiness and head to Mezze Bar, Durham Lane, Auckland on Tuesday 2nd March from 7.30pm for some crafty goodness. See you then!

Apologies for the very delayed post, but you can blame a successful LP night on Tuesday. It was great fun to see everybody again after the holidays; we had the usual refreshments, crafting and a good discussion on the ethics involved in labelling work as 'hand-made'. It wasn't as serious as it sounds though :)

I can't believe LP has been going for 6 months now. If you've been wondering about whether you should come along next time; here's why you should:

  • LP is just a small group of friendly crafters (we're normally about 10 to 15).
  • You can learn a bit about the craft markets if you're new to it.
  • There's always a bit of show and tell about new projects and purchases.
  • You can get to know some very interesting people.
  • You can get help from some very talented people.

The last reason is also the reason I've been unable to tear myself away from my knitting. Penny showed me what I was doing wrong with my purl stitch, and Belinda showed us an awesome knitting technique, the Magic Loop. Thanks everyone, and see you next month!
