Not just another knitter

Loani Prior's wacky tea cosies from her brand new book, Wild Tea Cosies, will inspire knitters and non-knitters everywhere to grab their needles and reach deep into their creative imagination, to knit their wildest fantasies and crochet their most elaborate dreams.

Meet and hear from local knitter extraordinaire, Loani Prior, at the launch of her book which is full of patterns, tips and techniques to help inspire the reader to create their own magnificent designs.

A selection of Wild Tea Cosies will also be on exhibition.

With the teapot as her canvas, and the wool as her paint, Loani takes the "granny" out of tea cosies. This is art!
