Here’s the news from Kate in London:
Back by popular demand, the craft meetup.
Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre, SE1 8XX near Waterloo station, 12th July, 11am onwards.
And it’s the crafts meetup again! Knitting and crochet are the focus, but we don’t discriminate. Macrame and papercrafts and sewing etc. are all welcome. Bring a project you’re working on, or bring leftover materials other people can learn on.
I can teach knitting but there’s only one of me, and I know nothing about crochet, so please do help with either one if you can! Or come to learn, or come to talk to us while we knit. 🙂This venue is working out really well.
They sell food in a cafe (standard sandwiches etc.), but they also don’t mind people bringing food in from outside. There are several other local places where you can buy stuff as well. The excellent food market outside has loads of different food options, which can fit most food requirements, or you can also bring a packed lunch.
Meet on the fourth floor, outside the Blue Bar (go up in the JCB lift, lift 7, which is bright yellow and quite musical). If you have been to a meetup previously on the second floor, we are now in the equivalent place horizontally, but two floors up vertically, if that makes sense?Here is the internal map of the Royal Festival Hall: http://www.southbankcentre.co.uk/sites/default/files/documents/RFH_map.pdf
I will have my Cthulhu with me, which looks like this: http://forbiddenplanet.com/3950-cthulhu-baby-plush/ I have long brown hair and glasses.
The venue is accessible via a lift, and has accessible toilets.
The London Awkward group has a Facebook page, which is here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/549571375087294/. There is also a thread in the new forums for saying hello.
