Valerie continues to use the stitch n flip method of construction this time to create stars and raise money for Breast Cancer Research. And as it’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month in the UK (October) a charity donation will be made by Justhands-on.tv for each of the Star Snowball workshop notes downloaded during the month.

Out & About
We filmed a really wonderful exhibition back in the summer showing work by the girls from Prism; Part 1 is up today (more next month of course). Their work is so very varied and really does challenge the traditional view of textiles and art.
And if you are planning to visit the Knitting & Stitching Show at Alexander Palace (London) 8-12th October then they have more work on show there.
Book of the Month
If you’re looking for pressie ideas don’t forget to have a browse through the Shop. Over on the right panel of the newsletter, we’ve suggested the Caddy Pad – an iron tote and ironing pad in one, which makes a great gift and comes with an accompanying workshop here.
Or, if you’d like to buy someone a fixed term membership – just purchase it early, cross it off your to-do list and we’ll send it through to them on Christmas Eve.
