People from across the globe joined in and participated in growing the Knitting Nancy structure. Over 30m was added to the structure over the 4 day event by everyone. People were using the structure to sit, relax and wait for friends at the reception of the show. We heared so many lovely complements on the Giant Knitting Nancy, and really happy that it is making connections with so many people. So many stories and memories were shared by visitors of French knitting.

Over the weekend we entertained so many families and children who really enjoyed bouncing, playing, climbing and exploring the knitted structure. New skills were learned and re-learned by all and it was fantastic to see people across generations sharing and showing each other how to knit.

We are planning for the Giant Knitting Nancy to keep growing, so keep following this site for more updates. You can also follow us on Facebook or on Twitter.
