Third Yarnbombing Workshop - Hobbycraft, York

Settling in at Hobbycraft

Our third Yarnbombing Workshop took place in Hobbycraft, York on Saturday.  We were made very welcome by Carol and her staff who had set up a great space for us and even brought us all hot drinks!  It seems to be a bit of a thing at our workshops because we needed more chairs yet again!

Hard at work

It was mostly new faces at this workshop probably because we had moved to the other side of York for this one.  Also, as it was on a Saturday it gave people working during the week a chance to come along.  Mostly people had made a special trip for our workshop but we did rope in some visitors from Pickering who were just shopping in the store!  Our venue had an added bonus - everyone could check out the Hobbycraft store and all the different activities and workshops they have on offer!

Yarnbombing Goodies

It was a very productive session.  Take a look at all the things brought & made.  Don't they look great!  Can you spot the lovely bluebird that Suzanne made nestling amongst the yarnbombing goodies?  Two of our attendees, Sonia & Fiona, have been busy making all sorts for the day including flowers and owls.  We were lucky enough to get a sneak preview of one of the owls - and he was so cute.  Worth coming to the event just to see them, I'd say!

Trying out extreme knitting!

And of course there was the opportunity to try out some extreme knitting which everyone was great at!
