As reported in the December 2018 edition of The Rudd, the Framework Knitters Museum has been awarded development funding of £114,300 towards their redevelopment and expansion project, titled “A Right Good Yarn.”
Now, the museum would like to say a big “Thank you” to all the National Lottery players who’ve made this generous funding opportunity come to fruition, by running a free event on Saturday 23rd November for everyone who plays the Lottery.
“We’re inviting all local Lottery players to come and make their very own scarf on an antique knitting machine – just in time for winter! Simply bring your Lottery ticket along to the Chapel at the museum to enjoy this free offer.” says Jim Grevatte, Museum Manager and Curator.
“You don’t need any experience, just choose your yarn and get knitting! We’ve been saving up yarn donated to us by companies, universities and knitters, so you’ll have a fantastic selection of colours to choose from.”
Lottery knitters can also enjoy free entry to the main museum site next door on the day. The event will run from 11am to 4pm. To find out more about the museum’s National Lottery grant and “A Right Good Yarn,” please visit www.frameworkknittersmuseum.org.uk.
