I'm just kicking off the chat about skills. It would be good if members can connect through the sharing of skills.

Do you have any skills you can share with other members? Like flower arranging or paper-folding (origami) or anything...

I don't live in Portsmouth, but in Widley. If anyone is interested in quilting and is prepared to drive, I have a small group of friendly ladies in Denmead. We meet on a Wed evening 7-9.30 and are varying ages mums-grans and varying abilities. We charge £3. ( Its a very sociable activity and easy to pick up. You bring your own work; we dont run classes but do help each other (if you dont mind several different opinions). I had hoped to start a group in Portsmouth but have run out of evenings! We have 7 month old twins living with us at the moment so I cant sew during the day either sad I'm open to people coming for a cuppa early afternoons though....

Thanks for the information, carrieh! I hope other gransnetters in your area will join in. I have the same problem with time!

Anyone doing gardening in retirement? I could do with some help but had heard horror stories about garden clearing services so would be grateful for recommendations from local people who might have used a really good service recently.

Is there anyone who can help with organising a tea party?

I would be happy to knit for anyone who wants something made. I no longer do the multi-coloured stuff but will do pretty much anything else. You can buy everything online these days. I'm not in Portsmouth but could do it by post.
