I have had the pleasure to be involved with the Create Place in Bethnal Green for just over a year and wanted do a blogging virtual shout out to them. So hereby. The Create Place is a wonderful creative space on Old Ford Road, near the tube and overground and right next to the ace Gallery Cafe. The run a fantastic selection of classes there, from creative writing to beginners sewing, cupcake decorating to quilting. There are knitting drop ins and free daytime classes, there is a little shop selling locally made designer handmade goodies, and there is always a pot of tea on the go.
It is run by the lovely Lisa. She didn't just bring her amazing stash of Kaffe Fassett fabrics but also bags of enthusiasm, knowledge and sheer love for the place. She knits, she blogs, she rollerskates, she rocks.
The Create Place is friendly and local, and every learner and teacher is instantly made to feel very welcome and involved. I love the place dearly and am glad to see it go from strength to strength.
And to top it off there is a selection of handmade designer goodies on sale!
Their website is here: www.thecreateplace.co.uk and their full listing and bookings are here: http://bookwhen.com/nghzv
