Drop into the Craftacular’s DIY Den this Saturday (easy to find: conveniently located next to the bar!) and you’ll be able to drop spindle and have a whirl at spinning your own yarn. Yes, pick up a copy of BUST when you arrive, wherein you’ll be able to read all about hand spinning, before checking out a live demonstration of this technique.
Showing off their spindle skills will be Rachael Matthews and Louise Harries, the yarn-tastic ladies behind Bethnal Green’s hip knitting store Prick Your Finger (it’s just round the corner from York Hall, so pay a visit while you’re in the ‘hood). They’ll also be on hand all day to offer advice and tips on all things knit, not to mention that they’ve printed up these amazing tote goodie bags for the Craftacular. Goodie bags for the first 100!
