    Hello fellow knitters,

    I am looking for knitters, both beginners and experienced, to particiapte in costume making for the St. Patricks Day Festival. The idea behind this project is that we would like to get as many knitters as possible to knit a piece of patchwork each (wool will be provided), that will then be put together to make 4 capes which will be worn in the parade.
    I am arranging a knitting day for the 2nd of March from 10 am – 2pm and would love as many people as possible to come along.
    if you think you would be interested in this please contact me at CityFusion@stpatricksfestival.ie

    Look forward to hearing from you,
    Fiona Ryan

    Hi, This is a great site. May I say that It would be even better if there were more Contact numbers for the above groups so that that people could text them to see if the meeting is on before they go, or at least an email address. Some of the meetings are only on every second week and I wouldn’t want to turn up on the week they’re not there. Thanks, Rachel
