Can you believe it? Seven months' silence! the main reason for my abismal lack of updates on the Helvetic kntting community is that we've sort of moved here:
stitchnbitchgeneva and we now meet, regular as clockwork, at the Starbucks cafe (near hotel des bergues) every Wednesday from about 6.30 ish. That site is regularly updated with members and messages and provdies most up-to-date info on the meets. But now autumn is drawing near, I feel the need to gather up my sticks again and a desire to share news of all the knitting and stitching related events that are coming up in the area.

Coming up next month is the annual Creations and Savoir Faire event held in Lyon and Paris. Its the 10th anniversary this year, so should be a good one.

Fans of the fabulously inspiring Marie Claire Idées magazine will be thrilled to know they're holding their first ever creative 'salon' in Paris, held in October.

Also in October (14 - 21st) the UK is holding National Knitting Week with events and workshops around the country.

Now I've got myself back on track with knitting news, I promise to try and most more regularly on here!
