Woman’s Weekly Live! 2014 was a fantastic event – the whole of the Woman’s Weekly team thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We met readers, taught workshops, broke TWO world records and put on some fabulous Fashion Shows. The event, which was held at EventCity in Manchester between 11th-13th September 2014, is hard to round up in just a few sentences. So, we thought we’d do it with pictures and videos instead. Well, you know what they say about pictures speaking a thousand words!

Our 10 favourite pictures…
(In no particular order!)
1. The grand opening
Well, it wouldn’t be a Woman’s Weekly event without a special opening. Our Editor, Diane, cut the Woman’s Weekly bunting to signal the opening of the event – doesn’t she look great in her JD Williams outfit?
2. Annabel who will soon be a pro-crocheter
Annabel Thorp come along to the show on Saturday 13th September and it was a birthday surprise! She joined the ‘Learn To Crochet’ workshop and our lovely Technical Knitting Editor, Tina, was so impressed with how quickly she picked up the skill.
3. Our JD Williams catwalk Fashion Show
4. Little Annabel and our Shop Editor, Lynsey
The gorgeous little Annabel paid Lysney a visit on the Shop stall – looks like she’s got her eye on that pink Doggie Draught Excluder.
5. The proof!
TWO new Guinness World Records in our name – and it’s all thanks to our lovely readers. Read all about it, here!
6. Male knitters joining in
It was lovely to see some male knitters join the workshops over the three days. This man was in the ‘Knitting With Colour’ workshop!
7. Meeting our readers
So many of our readers brought in gorgeous copies of Woman’s Weekly from years gone by – it’s so lovely to see how they’ve been so well looked after. This is Julie Skillner with three issues of Woman’s Weekly – one from 1962, one from 1968 and a more recent-ish copy from 1997.
Laura enjoyed browsing through the copies of our Vintage magazines.
9. 4 generations of Woman’s Weekly readers
You might not be able to believe it, but there are FOUR generations of Woman’s Weekly readers in this picture – along with a smiling Diane! Mary Conway, Catherine Steele, Katy Bothick and gorgeous little Reuben Bothick had a lovely day out. It was a pleasure to meet you all!
10. Your fabulous comments…
The lovely Valerie has been reading Woman’s Weekly for 62 years! She told us her auntie introduced her to it when she was just 8 years old. Her lovely comment simply said: ‘You are my family.’
Thanks to everyone that came along, we look forward to seeing you again next year!
