Here are the details so far:
Saturday 26 May 2012
Meet King's Lynn, Norfolk, railway station 9.30ish.
10 minute walk to The Fent Shop, spending around an hour there.
Back to railway station for the 10.56 train to Downham Market, arriving there at 11.09.
A couple of hours at Downham Market for The Sew Inn (Maureen there is going to make us tea!). We will have lunch in Downham too, and maybe see the Craft Shop and Peacocks (good for accessories, belts ,jewellery, that kind of thing).
Get the 2.09 train to Cambridge, arriving 2.44 (for anyone wanting to meet us in Cambridge for the afternoon). Shopping at Rejuvinate, Cally & Co., John Lewis, Cath Kidston and market. Maybe afternoon tea if there's time (I thought of that before Maureen offered to make us tea in Downham...).
Trains back to King's Lynn are 4.35, 5.35 etc ... The 5.35 gets back to Lynn at 6.20 for example.
If anyone is going back to London, trains to King's Cross are quarter to the hour and take 3/4 hour to get in.
We will be in red, white and blue or a Royal theme. So far, there is me, Frances, Debby, Charlotte and possibly(?) Rachel (for the Cambridge afternoon).
Anyone else wanting to add anything in or come along, please do so here! We could meet at any of the stops mentioned above if we know who wants to come along.
To save a bit of time I'm afraid I'll be wearing things I've already made now, on a red, white and blue theme rather than royal - at least they'll be getting an outing! I'm right at the very end of my Module 5 now and should be able to get back sewing again once it's posted.
Just to say I am very much looking forward to this next week.... xxx
I am, now that I'm nearly done with the knitting. I went in the Sew Inn in Downham today and Maureen there is going to make us tea and coffee. She's great and knows everything about sewing and fabric. I've also been told that my friend who's having the pattern sale will probably have cake for us too! The craft shop in Downham also has a brilliant Jubilee window display at the moment.
All set and ready to go ......!!!!!
Absolutely! Finished my outfit yesterday and prepared my other half that I shall be spending some money.
