Our second Maknichabi (Mad Knitter’s Charity Bingo) took place last Friday. First things first – we raised £310 for MSF. A big old virtual pat on all our shoulders. Thank you Mad Bingo Knitters! Some was raised on the night, some was raised by Out of Sighters via the raffle. We had a great group of people. There was drinking, cupcakes, nibbles, and bingo. Loads of hardcore bingo-ers, and kudos to Tricia who was a true bingo head with THREE booklets!
Lovely Tash did the honours for the calling (that’s MSF Pete and Syn in the foreground).
My dear friend Clare (a *gasp* muggle! shock! horror!) was game to join the night and had a blast.
Hailey won the Out of Sight Raffle – enjoy your Cookie Book and yarn.
Nathalie & Michelle from Stash came to join the fun – and even went away with prizes! (next time I’ll have more cashew nuts for you Michelle!) 😉 Lucy Wollmeise Addict shows how to work the bingo books…
We had some fun after the bingo hanging out and chit chatting – I think we also drank some more. I discovered the next day that alcohol and prescription antihistamines do not mix well. Urgh. But totally worth it. What a great night, so much fun with awesome people. A huge thank you to everyone who made the night possible. In particular:
Prize donations from:
Yarn Forward Magazine
Natalie Fergie of The Yarn Yard
Nathalie & Michelle of Stash Yarns
Arianna Halshaw of Bittersweet Bakers
Buffy & Don Taylor of Shelridge Farm
Julie Campbell & Mike of Winebeerexpress.com (keep an eye out for Taste & Tweet – loads of fun and yummy wine!)
And indispensable assistants:
Zsuzsanna Banfi & Tash Barnevald for keeping it together for me
Everyone who helped to clear up – er, I have to admit that part of the evening is a bit of a blur. So thank you if I forgot/was unable to thank you then!
Clare Weaver & David Cotton (ha! textiles clearly are supposed to be in my life!) for getting me home.
