Make, Do and Knit


knitting and making fair

Saturday 27th & Sunday 28th March, 2010

March 2010 sees the launch of an exciting event in the knitting and craft calendar Make, Do and Knit, which is to be held in the beautiful surroundings of the historic Grade II listed Bluecoat School in the charming and lively suburb of Wavertree in Liverpool. This new event is brought to you by knitonthenet editor and co-owner, Susan Crawford and designer/maker, Helen Chatterton, owner of Perfection of Production.

This exciting two day, knitting and making fair will have a vintage feel, echoing drapers of yesteryear where one could buy everything one needed from under one roof. Within the school's main hall, featuring magnificent arched windows, carefully selected retailers offering a wide selection of high quality knitting, spinning, dressmaking and haberdashery supplies.

Fashion shows will run throughout the two days in the historic, circular stone chapel with its glass domed ceiling. The chapel also offers visitors the chance to 'knit in the round' and relax in this awe inspiring setting, and have the opportunity to view the Poetry Society's knitted poem.

Additional attractions will include book signings and textile art exhibitions. The café will also have a vintage feel offering high quality, home cooked food at affordable prices.

You can find out more information as it happens and book your tickets on the Make, Do and Knit website. You can also join the Ravelry group to discuss all of the latest details. Tickets are also available from the knitonthenet shop. It costs just £3.50 for a day ticket or £5.00 for the weekend.

Hope to see you there!
