Grab a cuppa and your knitting (unless you don’t yet knit, in which case stay tuned…) and brace yourselves for our latest roundup of the feverish activity at The Cable Girls HQ.
We are thrilled to announce we have been invited to contribute to the new Art Maze in Cheltenham – our work will be unveiled on 1st April and open until 19th April. The Art Maze is being organised by Art Playground, the wonderful venue where we hold our knitting classes and workshops.
The Art Maze will be in an empty shop unit on the ground floor of the Beechwood Arcade in the centre of Cheltenham. It’s free to enter and you can also come and meet us and try your hand at knitting:
The Cable Girls knit-a-long sessions at the Art Maze, 11am-1pm:
Friday 3rd April
Saturday 4th April
Tuesday 7th April
Thursday 9th April
Saturday 11th April
We will be asking (and helping!) people to knit a few stitches or rows on a square, which we will turn into blankets for donation to homeless people in the local area – launching our first community project, “Project Warmth: Cheltenham” (#ProjectWarmthCheltenham). If you are already a knitter or crocheter and want to contribute some squares, please use acrylic yarn so the finished blanket is easy to wash. You can do them in any colour, weight of yarn, needle size and stitch you choose, just please make them 6 inches/15cm square. You can bring them to the Art Maze or send them to us at:

In other news, the last bits and pieces we need for our first classes were ordered this week and we received our lovely business cards – very exciting stuff.
We also opened up our courses to online bookings – all the details and links to book are on our website, which was overhauled this week too! Don’t forget – our learn to knit workshops are only £60 for 6 weeks if booked before 31st May 2015.
Bye for now,
The Cable Girls
