I thought that you would like to know that the Coral Reef is coming to Cambridge. The organisers are trying to start up more crochet coral workshops around the country in schools and galleries starting with the Fitzwilliam.

The workshops will be on July 4:

Darwin - Coral and Crochet!

Two sessions 11.00 - 13.00 & 14.00 - 16.00

Admission is free


It would be great if any of you would like to come. If any one would like to help teach others would be appreciated - but of course you don't have to.

Jackie currently sends out the email information once every month (and it will then also be uploaded to the blog and Ravelry - see below). If you find out about something that you think others would be interested in please let her know by (about) 20th of the previous month ( jackie AT rippeth DOT org.)
You may find that other people arrange additional activities which will not have been included in the email or the blog. To be fully up to date, the Knit Cam group at is the best place to go.
