Yateley MKC

Although our numbers are low, we’ve recruited several enthusiastic new members over the last year. As funds are diminishing we run the meetings among ourselves with only one speaker a year. We’ve been doing ‘Back to Basics’, as we believe that we all need this from time to time however long we’ve been knitting and it’s proving very popular. We’ve a monthly competition with everyone voting for their favourite (with tiddlywinks!) and points are awarded towards a yearly winner. We also have a charity night and a Christmas meal.

If anyone is interested in joining us on the second Wednesday of the month (except August) from 8.00 pm to 10.00 pm in Room D1.6 at Yateley School, please contact me on 01252-660250 or e-mail sandracornwall@ntlworld.com. I’d also like to mention that Jenny Barker and I have started knitting classes as these seem to be very thin on the ground. We have our own building and can offer group or individual tuition. Great magazine so keep up the good work. Best wishes from Sandra Cornwall

Knitting Buddy

If you’d like to become one of our Knitting Buddies, get in touch with Anne at the usual address and here are a few details. Our volunteers give help and advice to beginners or those returning to machine knitting after a long break. If travelling distances are not too great, they may even sit with you whilst you develop some basic knitting skills. Knitting Buddies are not trained professionals, so please don’t take advantage of their generosity by overloading them with your queries and remember also not to ask for or expect the impossible! It’s a free service for our readers and we ask you to keep your calls short. If you need comprehensive advice, simply make arrangements to call back at a time that’s convenient.

Machine Knitting Club in Vienna

We have been growing continuously and now we are thirteen. We meet once a month chatting about knitting exchanging patterns, showing our knits etc. We all come from very different backgrounds. Our youngest member is 24 and our oldest in the eighties. I always go to the meetings with MKM magazines, explaining and translating patterns into German.

If any knitter happens to come to Vienna we would be glad to meet her (or him?).

Kind Regards from Vienna

I am living in Budapest but am American. I am looking for supplies and wool yarns in Vienna for my Brother standard gauge machine. I would love to come shopping in Vienna even this Friday if I knew where to go!
Thanks! Julia
