Regular meetings cancelled until further notice

We have decided to cancel all further meetings of the club until further notice. This is in line with recent guidelines.

We are also aware that many of our members fall into the 'vulnerable' groups regarding the Corona virus - we are thinking of you.

Nottingham Show cancelled

We've just been notified that the Nottingham Show (the club was going to have a stand) has been cancelled.

We are disappointed but understand the reason why. For more information, see Machine Knitting Monthly's post about the cancellation.

Coming up shortly...

We have a full programme over the next three months:

  • March - Sue Booth is demonstrating 'all things tuck', both on the single bed and the ribber. Sue's talks are always inspirational, and I always learn something useful.
  • April - our AGM, where we review our finances (including deciding how we're going to distribute the funds we've raised for charity) vote for the committee members, and decide on some of the things we'd like to do over the coming months. It's a great 'knit and natter' evening, too.
  • May - Amy Twigger-Holroyd is coming to give us a talk. Amy is a lecturer at Nottingham Trent University, and has published two books: Folk fashion - understanding homemade clothes and Fashion knitwear design. She is a very experienced designer, maker and teaching of knitting, and has done a lot of work around reworking textiles.
All are welcome, but obviously only club members can vote on anything at the AGM.
