February - our first meeting of 2012

The next meeting is on Tuesday 7th February. We have a guest speaker and I am sure
everyone will find her of interest. Her name is Kim and she designs and knits costumes for stage and film at TV. Some of you may even have seen the shows that she knits for; Joseph and his Technicolor Dreamcoat, and Shrek and many others.

I am looking forward to hearing all about her knitting which is both by hand and machine.

Don’t be late, 8 pm is the time we will be starting. You won’t want to miss this one!

Visitors are welcome.

Well Done everyone and thanks as well

Just one photograph this time of the array of items brought in to give to the Friends of the Royal Marsden Hospital. We had to put an extra table out to fit everything on!

We took the things up to the hospital a few days after the meeting and within a short while a lovely letter of thanks arrived. All these items and more will be sold on their popular sales tables which raise valuable funds to support the good work carried out at the hospital.

Other knitted items were brought in for the show and tell part of the evening, but unfortunately the photos were not good. I'm still practicing with the new camera, but it may not be a new camera that is needed; it might be a new camera person/operator!

Apologies for being so late posting about a meeting in December. Lots of things got in the way and it is almost time for the next meeting. But more of that in a day or so.
