Celebrate worldwide knit in public day at Living Choice Fullarton

WWKIPDAY is unique, in that it’s the largest knitter run event in the world. Each local event is put together by volunteers. World Wide Knit in Public Day was started in 2005. It began as a way for knitters to come together and enjoy each other’s company. Knitting is such a solitary act that it’s easy to knit alone somewhere and sink into your work without thinking about all the other knitters out there. Neighbours could spend all their lives never knowing that the other knits.  This a specific day to get out of your house (with your knitting in tow) and join us at Living Choice Fullarton.

When: Saturday 10th June 2017   2pm-4pm
Where: Hudson’s Café, Living Choice Fullarton, 123 Fisher Street, Fullarton, SA 5063 (see map)
Enquiries: Joan Seymour (7111 2669)
