IMPORTANT: Due to COVID we have changed from Wednesday to Tuesday daytimes, and wintertime evening meetings will be held over Zoom.

April 26th 2022

Lida Higson, a contributor to Machine Knitting Monthly magazine, has offered to demonstrate two topics of our choice. You should have received the list by post, please contact Susan with your vote. There will be a £5 charge for this meeting plus the usual fee.

The Thursday evening meetings have started again after the winter break. We need an attendance of at least six members for this meeting to be viable. Please support the club if you can, otherwise there will be no evening meetings after the AGM in September.

September 5th 2021

Susan Marlow has been voted in as secretary, and will take up the new position on September 21st, which will also be the first Tuesday meeting so we can meet in a room with better ventilation. Evenings meetings in wintertime will be held over Zoom up to and including March 3rd. Susan is updating the Data Protection sheets, if you would like to receive a birthday card please send her your birthdate.

Charity Knitting

It's easy to lose interest if you've been knitting a long time, and sometimes it's nice to knit a small item to try out a new technique. There are many charities requesting knits, these are just a few ideas. Jane is happy to accept donated items for any of these charities listed below:

Knit for Peace - warm clothes for adults, babies and children at home and abroad wanted, also blankets, hats, gloves, scarves etc

Romanian Orphanages - Jumpers, hats, mitts, scarfs, socks, comfort blankets and soft toys for ages 0 to 8

Newlife foundation for disabled children - anything the charity can sell on eg knitted goods, handmade cards etc

Where we meet:

West End Centre
Andrewes Street (off Hinckley Road)
