When Lucy came to Dorset

I have just had the most wonderful weekend.

On Saturday I went to see my sister’s art exhibition and on Sunday, we had our Friends of Attic24: Dorset gathering at Sladers Yard art gallery and cafe, in West Bay.

What made Sunday extra special was that Lucy of Attic24 happened to be in Dorset and could pop in and join us for a couple of hours!!!

gathering at West Bay

How lucky was that!!!

A few more joined us after the photo was taken and we had a gatherng of 17 in all.

We had such a lovely time. Great coffee, cake, crochet and chat …….. wonderful!cafe crochet meeting

Lucy was very generous with her time, tips and hints Sladers Yardand it was fun showing her some of our Attic24 inspired makes and discussing the details of colour choices and variations.crochet chat

What better way to spend a wet Sunday morningcrochet group

There is something timeless and quite magical about a group of women crafting together


We said our fond farewells and Lucy departed for her long train journey back to Skipton. A huge thank you to Lucy for coming to join us, you are welcome any time!

Our group will definitely be meeting again in January at the start of Lucy’s Annual Crochet-Along, which promises to be a corker!

Think Dahlias …. that’s all I’m saying.   😉

  6. Great to read and see such collaborative creativity Sandra. My wife is off to her monthly Dye group meeting at our Hand spinners and weavers group. Occasionally there is a man in their pictures. Where are your creative blokes?

  9. I agree about the magic of people crafting together. I meet with a group of women every Thursday–it’s sacrosanct– for sewing and stitching. Your day looks warm and wonderful!

    • We really did have a great time Claire.
      If you follow Lucy’s blog, she will be sharing the colours and her design process in November, giving time for people to order the yarn packs – or ask for them for Christmas presents! 😉
