Summer is Here!

Linda Newington is Head of Library and Archive Collections for Art and Design at Winchester School of Art and gave a very interesting presentation at our last meeting. Linda explained about her 'In the Loop' project that has seen various exhibitions and workshops about knitting crafts. We were all spellbound by the stories and pictures she shared with us. There was a lot of information about copyright and trademarks that had made it difficult to electronically catalogue and make the collections available to the public. Some very old knitting books have been scanned and made available so it is possible to read them on the website and knit some items as they may have been knitted so many years ago.

Our members had also brought in a few items for show and tell.

 Sally had made a great hat with illuminations!
