NEW VENUE NEWS!
Happy New Year everyone!
We have some exciting news for 2012 – we have found a new meeting place! From Monday 16th January, after our little Christmas holiday, we will be meeting at the Red Squirrel pub on Lothian Road.
The Red Squirrel is situated towards the bottom of Lothian Road, just next to the HMV Picturehouse. We have spent the last couple of months trying to find somewhere that matches our various different needs in a venue, and this place seems to tick pretty much all of the boxes – it is welcoming, friendly and relaxed, does great food (and beers!) at a reasonable price, is centrally located near many bus routes and is open late.
We may also run some specialist workshops at other locations – potentially at The Sewing Bee Cafe which will soon be opening on Leith Walk. This place is well worth checking out – they hire out sewing machines and quilting machines by the hour, plan to host workshops and eco parties and will be exhibiting textiles work.
There’s an eclectic bunch of activities and workshops planned for the next few months, including our regular craft drop-ins. We are currently finalising the programme, but will get it up on the blog in the next week or so.
Looking forward to seeing you all and getting our craft on!
