Volunteers wanted for (City) Farmyard Knitting

Posted by Deadly Knitshade on May 21, 2009

Looking for something knitty to do this weekend? Why not get your knit on down in the farmyard at Spitalfields City Farm for their annual Sheep & Wool Fayre on Sunday 24th May from 12noon – 4.00pm.

If you’re feeling extra helpful they’re looking for willing volunteers to teach/demonstrate knitting. If you think you can help (in return for refreshments and travel expenses) please contact the lovely Helene (farmyard programme manager and self-confessed budding knitter) by emailing farmyard@spitalfieldscityfarm.org.

If you don’t want to teach and just want to knit then go anyway. They’ll be shearing their flock, showing off some rare breeds and also demonstrating how those big piles of fleece can be spun and then knitted, crocheted or even woven into all manner of items.

We’re told that the weather was lovely last year, so fingers crossed for another sunny day!
