Tension Squares

If several members want tuition it may be possible to hire a hall and have a group class, otherwise, individual tuition is available from club members who are also Machine Knitting tutors.

Several years ago, a programme of lessons and workshops to help new machine knitters and “returners” those coming back to the craft after a long time, was developed by April.

Sessions started in November 2011 and continuing monthly until May.

We covered a wide range of techniques,  and all enjoyed the classes immensely. April, our tutor was unstinting with her tips, help and advice.

This course has now finished.

Saturday Morning

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.
