The Knit Studio will be open Thursdays until late, Fridays and Saturdays, starting this Saturday. We are all terribly excited about this. We’ll be helping with the workshops programme with specialist sessions on photographing knitting, and there are plans to offer a limited range of Artemis Adornments designs as part of knitting kits. Watch this space!
If you can make it on Saturday, please come along with your empty Masa shopping bag!
See you there. :)
