June meeting coming soon

Our June meeting is coming up fast!  Tuesday 3rd June 8 pm at the St Johns Ambulance Hall as usual.

We have a special treat for you.  A speaker!  Linda Newington is Head of Library and Archive Collections for Art and Design at Winchester School of Art, a specialist art and design library, of the University of Southampton Library.  She will be telling us about the collection of knitting books and knitted pieces that are looked after by the University.  I don’t think she will be allowed to bring any of the pieces with her, but she will be bringing digital photographs and talking about the collection. And I am sure she will explain how you can view some of the collection on line.

I’m sure you will find it a fascinating evening.

For those that can’t make it on Tuesday, may I remind you that at the following meeting in July it will be our Challenge evening, when we ask you to bring along something you’ve knitted that includes buttons, beads or sequins.  Don’t show or tell anyone else what you are bringing as we will all be voting for our favourites on the night.  All entries should be anonymous and there will be prizes for the favourite entries.  More about this on Tuesday and e-mails next month.
