Temporary Home Page
Welcome to Bookham Knitting Club
This temporary page gives essential details about the club. A new look website is coming soon.
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 – South London, Wimbledon to Guildford, Twickenham to just south of Dorking.
Dates and Times
We are back at the Hall after meeting on Zoom for about 18 months during the worst of the Pandemic.
We normally meet on the second Wednesday of the month at 8 pm. 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. Normally the December meeting is a Christmas party with a buffet meal but in 2021 this may not be possible.
Meetings are held monthly at the
Old Barn Hall,
Surrey, KT23 3PQ UK
Meetings are in the Harrison Room which has its own entrance towards the rear of the building on the right hand side as you face the building. Separate parking is also at the back of the car park on the right. Committee members have the code to enter via that door and will try to be at the hall well before the meetings start.
Updates on Forthcoming Meetings
This section will give information about any changes to the next meeting or more detailed information. We are creating the new programme as we go along after the long months where we hae been meeting on Zoom.
November 2021 Meeting
Frances will demonstrate some ribber techniques including circular knitting. Lyn will bring her circular knitting machine do show how it works and what it can do.
December 2021 Meeting
It was decided that no Party would be held in December, and a normal meeting would replace it. The topic will be Chunky Knitting Machines and two machines will be available. Demonstrations of hand tooling on these machines will be done as many chunky’s have limited patterning available.
We will have some special seasonal nibbles with our tea/coffee and more time to chat. The committee will bring these along so everyone else can just relax at this busy time of year.
January 2022 Meeting – CANCELLED
The topic for January will be soft furnishings, everything from cushion covers and seat covers to lace curtains. These are often made in firm hardwearing fabric and that will be part of the discussion/demonstration. If you have made any soft furnishings please bring them along if they are easily portable.
