Four Seasons Shopping Centre is encouraging the people of Mansfield to get knitting next week in honour of the World War 1 centenary as well as in support of the Mansfield People’s Poppies Appeal.
Taking place on September 5 from 12pm until 4pm, the free event, which will take place in The Hive at Four Seasons, is open to anyone wanting to pick up a pair of needles and knit. Beginners, experienced knitters and anyone in between is welcome, with the aim for everyone taking part to make wool poppies which will be donated to the Mansfield People’s Poppies Appeal.
There will be two experienced knitters on-hand to provide demonstrations and tutoring to any visitors who may want it.
And to accompany the crafters whilst they are busy making their poppies, there will be live performances from a professional jazz, vintage and swing singer all afternoon.
There will also be refreshments, such as tea, coffee and cake available throughout to help keep those busy hands at work. All materials are provided and for the more professional knitters among us are more than welcome to bring their own equipment.
