Internationally renowned knitwear designer, Debbie Bliss, will be joining us at Purl City Yarns on Friday, 30th September from 12:00-16:00 for lunch and a knit along.  Lunch will consist of tea, coffee, wine, sandwiches, and cake and as always, bring your knitting along for the after lunch knit along.  In order to attend, you must book in advance, £5 per person, which will be donated to the Francis House Appeal.

Debbie Bliss is one of the most well-known knitwear designers with her own brand of yarn and author of over 30 books.  Her designs are timeless and often inspired by classic British stitch patterns, particularly fisherman’s ganseys, aran and fair isle designs.  Debbie Bliss designs are well thought out to compliment the drape or stitch definition of one of her gorgeous yarns.  She loves to play around with colour combinations and is always thoughtful of how colours will look against the skin as well as how it will fit together as a piece of knitwear.  To find out more about Debbie Bliss’ designs, yarns, books, or inspirations, please join us on 30th September for some lunch and knitting.

The cost of the event is £5 per person and 100% of that will be donated to the Francis House Appeal, a Manchester based charity.  Francis House provides care for children with life threatening conditions and support to their friends and family.  Families can go to Francis House for rest along with treatment as well as end of life care and support.

To buy tickets for the event please visit the shop or call us on 0161 425 3864.
