Isabelle Holmes: “Come see me finish this on stage at Roulette tomorrow night. Show is at 7pm, and I promise you, watching me and 21 other knitters, including Janusz Jaworski, will NOT be like watching paint dry. It will be way fun. Performance knitting, who knew? Jobina Tinnemans knew. 🙂 ”
Gaynor captured yesterday’s rehearsal in Tregwynt Mansion’s ballroom. Very exciting moment to check everything is working and it all went well. What fab people are here in and around Fishguard! There were some very useful comments to help polishing it off.
Lysa Chen is one of the knitting soloists, this is just great! Thank you, Lysa, it’s all coming together. x

Andy Wheddon : “Monday, early evening, Jobina rehearsing for MATA in the living room – I had gone to the kitchen to make tea and came back to this extraordinary scene. For once my camera had a fully charged battery.”
on Lizzy Stonhold‘s wall: Think this picture sums up our afternoon the best, Jobina explaining her fantastic project for the MATA festival in NYC, our FAS Knitting Jazz group furiously knitting the white ‘score’, beautiful daffodils on display in Seaways Bookshop, and the paper bird, little did we know at this stage, three of us would be knitting sounds of birds!!! – a wonderful afternoon! 🙂
