This morning, we met in The Sun Hotel, Hitchin to try out the facilities and make a decision as to whether this was the location of our new 'home'. We were booked into 'The Angel' conference room which was already set up when I arrived at 9.55am. There was some confusion about the tea and coffee facilities and, because members were arriving at irregular intervals, I opted for the 'individuals order at the main bar' option.
I think the photos illustrate how 'at home' we all felt.Click throughan image for a larger version.
Half past ten and the group is already busy and settled but everyone stops to welcome Jane.
Lots of co-operation and help (as usual) for those undertaking new projects.
Happy knitters engrossed in their work but not too busy to chat or offer advice and encouragement.
Pam proudly displays her very first attempt at 'felting' - and rightly so, it's a fabulous little bag.
Linda and new member Elaine seem happy with the venue.
The unanimous verdict is that we are here to stay. Tea and coffee, with biscuits (at £1.50 per serving) will be set up at 10.15 at future meetings. and we've already booked our Christmas 'do' for the 17th December - a morning's knitting, followed by Christmas Lunch with 'Secret Santa' gifts.
