Hi Everyone, Still no news on opening our shop but we are looking at ways it can be managed when the time comes.
In the meantime we have been asked to make masks for the vulnerable in our community now that lockdown is easing. so, in essence, we are looking for as many voulunteers as possible. Many hands make lightwork!
We will supply fabric and elastic for those who do not have any. Someone will be in the shop ( at a social distance) on Wednesday and Sunday afternoons at 2pm for the next two weeks to either collect made masks or give out fabric.
This is another idea to add to our activities during this time of isolation. These scarves are very easy to knit when we want a break from sewing. Of course we have to collect them at home until this pandemic is over but think of the number of people who will be happy to receive one when we can eventually give them out.
The pattern is quite simple: – using Chunky wool and 6mm kneedles, cast on 24 sts, or double knitting wool, cast on 33 sts. Knit in stocking stitch, garter stitch, moss stitch or any pattern you prefer to a length of 150-200cm (60ins)
The scarves can of course be crocheted if you prefer.
We look forward to seeing the finished results along with all your quilts!!
Due to the current situation with Covid 19 we have decided to cancel this year’s Exhibition . We will reschedule for next year. The Challenges will remain the same, so this will give us all lots of time to complete your projects! We can only apologise but we look forward to lots of entries for 2021
Before or after shopping. Drop in and see us at Islay Quilters. For Any Craft. tell us what you would like to try. Work on a project you are already doing or just come and have a cup of tea and a chat.
We look forward to seeing you
