Ely Apple Day

Ely ktog will be at the annual Ely Apple Day, celebrating all things apple, on Saturday 17th October between 10am and 4pm. If anyone could make anything (apple-related or not, although it would be good to fill a fruit bowl with knitted/crocheted apples!) it would be fantastic because the more money we make the better….it doesn’t matter how small - we’ll sell it! We're joining forces with the Ely coffee and crafts group who have nominated Arthur Rank as our charity, to whom all proceeds from the event will be donated. Patterns for knitted apples can be found here and here (Ravelry links). Please come along and support us, and we'll keep our fingers crossed that this spell of lovely autumn weather continues!

Jackie 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 at jackie AT rippeth DOT org by the 20th of the previous month.

Because these meetings are very informal and Jackie only sends out an email once a month you may find that other people arrange additional activities which will not have been included in the email. We attempt to update the blog with other interesting things we know about, but the best way to keep informed is the knit Cam group at (And if you haven't joined Ravelry yet, there is so much good stuff over there that it's worth it - - nearly half a million knitters can't be wrong!)
