Our Yarn Exhibiton at Trainworks

FOr the last 6 month the Crochet and Knitting group that I am the President of have been working very hard on completeing a yarn exhibition to be held at our local steam train museum. Stram trains and yarn dont mix I hear you say ! We were approched by the museum to create items that told the storys of the trains and also to add a bit of 'colour and fun' to the stuffy olf museum  - their words not mine
Please enjoy some of the photos taken on the day there were over 100 great pics taken on the day
HUGE thank you to my ladies that were involved in helping, sewing, crochet and knitting

My beautifull ladies that helped out on the day
There are ladies that couldnt make it that also helped with the crochet and knitting :)
