    Local News

    I've a little bit of exciting news!
    I don't know whether any of you have heard about the Knitting & Crochet Guild here in the UK?  

    Knitting & Crochet Guild - Knitting & Crochet Guild (

    They are a UK-based charity dedicated to hand knitting, domestic machine knitting and crochet, run by volunteers and supported by subscriptions and donations.

    Community is at the heart of their ethos and they aim to bring together enthusiastic yarn creatives from across the Globe. They are passionate about taking our crafts into the future while respecting the traditions and skills of the past. They look to encourage, inspire and be inspired by amazing makers at local level through the branches and the wider Guild community. They are here to facilitate learning new skills and about the history of knitting and crochet.

    The collection is on line for members but more interestingly for me, the collection is held in a mill in my local village Slaithwaite !! and whilst I don't volunteer for the collection team (yet!) I have (along with 3 friends) volunteered to run the monthly Huddersfield Branch meetings. 

    All 4 of us (Duna, Roz, Gill and myself) have a passion for knitting and crocheting and are excited about having the Huddersfield meetings in Slaithwaite too.  Find out where and when by clicking here.
