Earlier this month, we were delighted to be exhibiting at the Knitting & Stitching Show at Alexandra Palace, in partnership with Rowan Yarns.  We took over the Knitter’s Cafe in the Great Hall and had a beautiful space in which to promote our franchises and classes.

No, this isn’t the set of This Morning, this is the Knitter’s Cafe, sponsored by Knitting For All in Partnership with Rowan!

It was great to meet so many wonderful people, to make new friends, chat about what it’s like to be a Knitting For All teacher and spread the word about our award winning classes.

We were especially delighted that so many children and teenagers felt welcome to come and learn to knit and sit with us a while.

And we loved having the opportunity to brush shoulders with knitting celebrities like Dee Hardwicke, Lisa Richardson and Arne & Carlos.
