Knitting workshop 17th May with Anne Holvey

Hi Everyone,
Just a quick email about the knitting workshop with Anne Holvey, on Saturday, (17 May).  If you are planning to come to the workshop and haven't signed up yet, please could you do so this Tuesday. Alternatively, if you reply to this message, I'll add your name to the list.  
Unless it causes difficulties, it's planned to start the workshop at 9.30am instead of 10.00, and to finish at 3.30.   This is because the Guild would need to pay for an additional session of room hire, at the Cross, if the workshop carries on after 3.30pm.   If this start time is a problem for you, please could you let me know asap?

Ann has sent this information, about some knitting that you'll need to get ready.
