Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre, SE1 8XX near Waterloo station, 15th February, 1pm onwards.

(Please note change of meeting time, 1pm rather than 12.  Also we will be on level 5 if it’s open, or otherwise level 2)

Crafting meetup!  Please bring anything you’re making which won’t damage the venue, and if applicable stash so that others can try.  I can teach knitting to intermediate if anyone wants to learn.  Or just come and chat with us.
