Knot just Knitting

On a Tuesday and Saturday afternoon 1:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. and Friday morning from 10:00 a.m until 1:00 p.m., we will hold our ‘Knot just Knitting’ groups. So come along and bring your knitting or crocheting and join like-minded people for good conversation and maybe a little bit of inspiration. There will be a small charge to cover the cost of drinks and biscuits (no need to pre-book).

Knit Club

On the last Tuesday & last Saturday of the month 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and second Wednesday 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Knit Club groups are suitable for complete novices who want to learn from scratch, or rusty knitters who just need a reminder to get them going again or more experienced knitters who need help with a specific pattern or want to learn a new technique. If you have a project in mind that you want our help with bring it along or we can get you started on a new project specifically designed to progress your skills.

Hard Sock Cafe

Third Saturday of the month 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and last Wednesday 1:30 p.m to 3:30 p.m.

Don't be misled by the name of this group, we just liked it. It is not a group for 'hard sock', it's a group where you can come and learn to knit socks or get help with a specific technique or any other sock-related query. If you would like to learn to knit socks, you will need to buy one of our simple sock kits and then we can get you going from there.

The cost is £5 per session for all clubs with a tutor (knit, crochet & Hard Sock Cafe) and is payable at the time of booking. Booking is essential so pop into the shop or call 01472 508707.
