Hi all, i was just wondering if there is anything like this in Drogheda or nearby, have a few friends who are part of this group throughout the country. It is where a group of ladies meet up in different houses, meet up do do different individual knitting, crochet or sewing projects…and of course to have few cups of tea, coffee…eats and a good ole chat?? If there are a few who would be interested in this maybe we could start a new group????

my mam attends one of these clubs on a Wednesday in Dublin, they go to a local pub for coffee, think its a way for the oaps to get out of their houses and saves them using their Oil (well in my mams case) 😆 😆 😆
I’d love this but havent even go a clue how to put up stitches on a needleNovember 24, 2009 at 7:49 pm #82357
taylor5, i was exactly the same, seen the pics of cardis, hats, leg warmers that my friends had made….though sure i can do that, i did it in school..had to go on you tube to show me how to do it, and in the end I do have a very basic scarf, wearable but by no means fashionable!!!
My friend loves her meeting, got her out of the house and meeting new people, goes to a different house every 2 weeks and everyone has to bring a dessert (probably not every week!!!)
I am up for it if other people are?????? I have been looking for wool, needles in drogheda but cannot find any shops anymore, so on internet buying up balls of wool..tried http://www.craftyalley.comNovember 24, 2009 at 8:05 pm #82360

wool i got in lidl when they have them in….have some spare so can always give u a few balls to play with….. 😆 😆 😆 i mean knit!!!!

Let me know if you start one club like that I would also be interested in joining.
I took a design course when I was 15 and made a pair of trousers and a top…
Got a sewing machine only 2 months ago in order to make my curtains at home and my mum came over and made the ones for the entrance, I still have to get my things together and make the rest of the house’s curtains.
I also find it hard to find the fabric…
Best shop so far that I found is Hickeys in Dublin on Henry Street.November 25, 2009 at 10:43 am #82402Maria30Member
That sounds like a great idea.
I recently got a ball of wool and needles off my granny just for something to do in the evenings. I used to find myself getting bored and then I start picking at food mainly crap so now I pick up needles and knit instead. I havent knitted anything in particular but it has saved me from putting on weight!!!November 25, 2009 at 10:51 am #82405yummymummyMember
Its Bredas wool thats beside callans..she used to work in tullys!
My mam has started knitting again after about 15 years..knitting wee cardis for my brothers impending baby next year 🙂
My aunt has been doing cross stich for years…you can get magazines with mini ones to start off with..have to say I enjoyed doing that when I actually did it…might start up again.November 25, 2009 at 5:29 pm #82561
this is sounding good!! how many people do we think would be interested in this, as i said i am in grange rath as is trudylynch, we could start in one house and move to someone else the following week, fortnight etc???
i would be up for it, butprobably not till after xmas and most evenings suit me?
