Yarnstorming & crafts at NGS Open Gardens, Loughborough

We'd like to say thank you very much to  Janet Currie and Pete Mosley who kindly invited Little Bird SOS to take up temporary residence in their beautiful house and garden in Loughborough, Leicestershire this weekend.   Janet had very kindly invited us to display our handmade items for sale, and Pete has long been a supporter of Little Bird SOS, dishing out carefully considered advice to Lisa and trusting me to review his book, The Art of Shouting Quietly.

Their expertly tended garden was open as part of the National Garden Society Open Gardens Scheme.  A few days ahead of the event Lisa and I spent a happy evening installing a wrap for their tree, which went smoothly thanks to Janet supplying the most detailed measurements we'd ever seen ahead of time and on Saturday morning we set up stall alongside silversmiths, artists and the Crop Club, ahead of spending the weekend meeting, selling and generally chilling out with coffee and delicious cakes!

We'd also like to thank the Knit2gether members who helped us to assemble the squares for the tree wrap ahead of time, and the Little Bird SOS Yarnjackers that helped on the day - we really appreciate you giving your time and skills to be with us.  And finally thank you to everyone that bought something from us - your contributions will enable us to continue to provide arts for health and wellbeing to people in the Leicestershire area.
