The Pump House Gallery in Battersea Park is about to launch a show, simply entitled 'Smoke'. 
It runs from Sunday 5th October- 14th December, with a Smoke Fayre on Saturday 8th november from 12-4pm, where Prick Your Finger invite you to help us spin smokey fluff from smokey angora rabbits and knit smokey forms. Whilst knitting, you could have smokey eye make up done, talk to the men who service the fire engines, and marvel at magicians making things disappear in a puff of smoke. 
It's free, and the gentlemen can smoke outside.

Darning artists Celia Pym and Michael Swaine are coming to the rescue next week at Prick Your Finger. Autumn is here and our knitwear needs fixing.
Celia, is arriving on Tuesday 7th to fix the jumper pictured above, and we shall be darning with her all week. 
Michael Swaine is coming to stay on Saturday 11th. Michael is coming from San Fransisco, especially to fix our holes. You can meet him at the Knitting and Stitching Show at Alexandra Palace, starting next Thursday.  PYF has a darning service all year round, but we do recommend popping in sometime next week if you want a lesson.
