Went down to Piccadilly and looked in on the Manchester blogger bash. It was quite a gathering - maybe 25 to 30 people in all. I met some bloggers I know, like Chris and Kate, some bloggers I kind of know, like Lisa and Wilson (who come from the part of Manchester known as Nottingham), and some bloggers I didn't previously know, like Tim and Ian and Kate (not the same one) and Clare. Needless to say, so I'll say it, the main topic of discussion was... needlework. The event continues even now.
