Covert Operation

Mel Innes Adventure Harrogate Convention Centre Knitting and Stitching Show Research Staff outing

Covert Operation

As you will (hopefully) know, we are going to be at the Knitting and Stitching Show in Harrogate in November, but during one of our famous brainstorming sessions our planning hit a snag - we knew virtually nothing about the venue. There was only one thing to do - find a way to get inside the Harrogate Convention Centre for a well intended fact finding mission. After scouring the event listings for the venue, we eventually found our opportunity - The Harrogate Bridal Show.

GUEST REVIEW: My Fitness Diary

Our latest guest review comes from the lovely Rachel, of Run with Rachel, who has very kindly agreed to share her thoughts on our fitness diary. Having gone from non runner to marathon runner herself, we think she is the perfect candidate to road test it for us!   Review: My fitness diary   Keeping on top of a fitness regime, especially in the winter months can be pretty challenging. It's cold, the nights are dark and it's easy to hide any winter weight gain under chunky knitwear.  Fortunately the lovely people over at stationery geek have devised this fabulous little...
