March meeting

This Month Clair Crowston is our Speaker. She is coming down from her home in Scunthorpe for the Machine Knitting Live show in Bournemouth on March 7th and stopping off for a few days with us first. It's not very often we get the chance to hear and see Clair demonstrating as she lives so far away. Clair will be showing us some of the techniques she uses on the garments she designs. There is a link to her website, so if you have time do take a look. I am sure she will have a selection of her patterns available for us to buy.

We have invited members of other knitting clubs to join us for the evening, so we expect a good turnout. Visitors are always welcome at our Club.

Looking forward to seeing lots of you on Tuesday 3rd March. 8 pm prompt please.

visit to Woodley Club

Last week some of the members of Fleet Knitting Club visited Woodley Machine Knitting Club to tell them a bit about our club and to show them some of the things we had knitted.

They listened very closely to the things we told them and afterwards had a chance to inspect the garments and other things we'd taken along. We also took along some folders that we had of the printouts of pages of the blogspot.

We were made very welcome and had a lovely evening. Woodley are coming to visit us in April.

Febrary meeting cancelled

Due to the adverse weather conditions it has been decided to cancel the February meeting.

Although the main roads have been gritted and a thaw has begun, many back roads and pavements are still very icy. It is also set to freeze again tonight.

See you on 3rd March when Clair Crowston is coming to speak to us. Clair is stopping off on her way to Machine Knitting Live in Bournemouth (7th March). She comes from Scunthorpe and normally only travels about 70 miles to speak at a club, so this is a rare opportunity to hear her. Her website address is
