The Club and Venue
About Bookham Knitting Club
The club has been in existence continuously for at least thirty years. It started to meet in Esher, Surrey and then moved to Fetcham, was for many years in Effingham, and is currently in Great Bookham, Surrey.
Its aim is to further the craft of Machine Knitting in any way possible. Our meetings cover a wide range of allied craft subjects, and many members are also excellent hand-knitters and interested in dressmaking and sewing etc.
Dates and Times
Meetings are on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 8pm and normally last to around 10:30pm with a refreshment break.
Except for August when we have a fun meeting – lunch or a trip – we are at the hall in Bookham.
In December we normally have a Christmas Party instead of the usual meeting.
You can attend you first meeting completely free but after that, there is a charge of £4 per meeting. This covers our costs as well as the coffee or tea and cake.
From January 2013 meetings we are meeting at the Old Barn Hall, Church Road, Bookham, Surrey, KT23 3PQ England.
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. 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.
