Meet the Crafter at the Whitworth Art Gallery, 1st September 2012Whether you are a crafting guru or have never picked up a sewing needle our friends at BBC Learning would like to invite you to a special event.

Meet the Crafter is a sewing event that aims to inspire and foster new skills, by introducing you to textile experts from a range of backgrounds. This will be a non-televised event that has been developed to support a forth coming BBC Two programme.  BBC North West’s weather presenter, Eno Eruotor (pictured below), has also created a crafty video challenge.

      Hi Alan,
      we’re not involved in organising, so don’t know who exactly will be there – but I’m sure if you email the organisers, they will be able to tell you :)
