Dear Stitchers and Knitters

There has been some confusion over dates for the end of this term and start of next term. The sheet that I have put on the table several times has these dates and that is what we are sticking to. Consequently there is only a one week break over Easter.

Jan 5 – 29 Mar 2012 (Half term 16 Feb)

April 12 – July 19th 2012 (Half Term June 7th)

6th Sept – 13 Dec 2012 (Half Term Nov 1st) Polling day Nov 15th – no session

We may (depending on whether you want it and whether the hall is free) have another one in July (26th) leaving us just the whole of August off. Let us know what you think.




Time flies

March 7, 2012

I can’t believe it’s nearly Easter – why do January and February fly by so quickly?

We are enjoying our Thursday sessions very much with often as many as 20 ladies attending.

Our next workshop is on April 22nd and  is almost full. We are going to teach how a lace shawlette is designed and knitted but using 4ply rather than the very fine 2ply.

Everyone is welcome so if you haven’t been before, don’t be shy – email us for more information  We meet on Thursdays in term time and charge £4 per session (only pay if you attend). Petham Village Hall is about 4 miles outside Canterbury (CT4 5RD) – modern and light with free parking plus homemade cake & coffee/tea.

Keeeeeeeep knitting (or sewing, or crocheting…) – soon be time for Strictly again.
