This page gives details of forthcoming events and previous meetings.

Based in Great Bookham in Surrey, UK we are an old established club and we always welcome new members. We would love you to get in touch if you are a machine knitter in  Surrey, we currently have members from quite a wide area – Wimbledon to Guildford, Twickenham to just south of Dorking. See the Contact Us in the menu above for a contact form.

Dates and Times

We meet on the second Wednesday of the month at 8pm.  The hall is open from around 7:45 for setting up.  We have no formal meeting in August but try to arrange a fun event for those not on holiday.

Updates on Forthcoming Meetings

This section will give information about any changes to the next meeting or more detailed information – view look under the Programme menu.

Future Meetings

October Meeting will be on Zoom at around 10:30am as last month. There will be two halves allowing for a short break in between, so you may get two separate links.

Members should have received an email beforehand with details and a link to the meeting.

Please be a few minutes early so that Margaret can admit you to the meeting one at a time.

Programme During Covid-19 Pandemic

The club is meeting regularly - online - we have monthly Zoom coffee mornings on the second Wednesday of the month at 10:30 where we do a "show and tell" session and keep up to date with our members.

Due to the age profile of the membership there is not much likelihood of us having any face to face meetings in the foreseeable future. But we are considering having more content in our online meetings.

If you have not joined in so far it is very straightforward, Margaret sends out an email with a link and you need to click on it. It may ask you for the password which is in the email. You will need a device with a working camera if you are going to show anything you've made. A laptop computer, tablet computer or iPad are best but even a smartphone is possible.
