Daytrip, anyone?

I've just heard about a fantastic-sounding exhibition coming up at the Sainsbury gallery, in Norwich. It sounds fascinating and features contemporary textile artists from Estonia, Finland, Lithuania, Japan and the UK.

I'm not sure there'll be a huge amount of knitting/crochet content (though I see that Freddie Robbins is included) but I'm planning to go at least twice, as I'm hoping to organise a couple of daytrips for the Cambridge KTog crew (one on a Saturday and one on a weekday, sometime during March/April) combining the exhibition with a visit to the oh-so-tempting Norfolk Yarn.

We'll be travelling by train from Cambridge (via Ely for connections with trains from the Midlands and the North) and bus once we're in Norwich. (Interesting fact: when you catch the bus to Norfolk Yarns you ask for "Mecca", as the Mecca Bingo Hall is opposite the shop).
Let me know if you'd care to join us!

*update*: the Saturday is now fixed- Sat 5 April 2008

That does look amazing and worth more than one visit! No idea whether I'd be able to make it, though. With DH out of country until the beginning of April but for a week or so, I end up bringing the kids to whatever I do, and I wouldn't be able to enjoy something like this wrangling little people. Sigh...

Susie, I think the exhibition runs through until late May, if that's any help? If not, maybe we could fix something else up for later in the year. I know iKnit London are planning a big gathering (possibly in August) and there's the Knitting & Stitching Show in October.

Sounds like a good day out - count me in. I've never been to the yarn shop you mentioned but it certainly sounds worth checking out.
I'm hoping the bag will be delivered some time this week - I called them on Friday, and they were expecting them mid-week, so I may have it with me for the k2tog next weekend.
Look forward to seeing you there.

Oh, I am so jealous you get to see that exhibit! Me too, me too!

Thank you for the link, though. I am thinking of ordering the book. :)

I thought I'd commented, but it's gone? Odd. Anyway, count me in.

I know why I'm confused, I commented on the similar post on the Cambridge ktog blog. I'm not going mad after all. :-)
