December 2013 - Christmas is coming......

It’s almost time for the December meeting which will be on Tuesday 3rd December.  It’s our Christmas meeting where we have mince pies (instead of biscuits) with our tea and coffee.  It’s also the meeting where we bring things along that will be delivered to the Friends of Royal Marsden Hospital at Sutton.  You’ve already been very generous and I have a big pile of things to deliver and I will add anything else you bring along to the collection of beautiful knits and assorted other goodies.  Anything new and unused will be used to raise funds for the Hospital.  Last year the sales table alone raised over £20,000.

We are also expecting Hart councillor Stephen Gorys to pay us a visit during the evening.

Please come along.  8 pm as usual

Crafting in Abundance

Valerie from Woodley Machine Knitting Club, gave an interesting talk on many items she has crafted since becoming involved with knitting. Here are a selection of items from the varied and inspiring assortment she had brought along. All of the knitted items had been machine knitted but with other crafts sometimes added to complete the design.

Here are the show and tell items this month

November 5th - no fireworks for us!

If you don't like fireworks, but love knitting come along to our meeting - on Tuesday 5th November.

Val from the Woodley club is coming to show us some of the more unusual items she knits but a few that are not quite so different.  I've already seen some of them, so I know you'll be interested.  It might even give you some ideas for things to knit for our next challenge - buttons, beads and sequins.

We'll also have time for the usual things like notices and tea or coffee.  The meeting will start at 8 pm as usual.
