The Knitting Group meets on the second Wednesday of the month from 2.30pm to 4.30pm. This group is currently meeting despite having no leader. Meetings take place at various member's homes. Contact Barbara Robinson telephone number 01279 832208 or Anne Gibson 01279 834144 for more information.
Members of the Knitting Group bring their own items to work on at meetings. We help each other with new techniques and skills, and try to work out what a pattern should be saying when it just won’t work! Some members are involved in knitting for various charities – eg warm clothing for merchant seamen via the Sailors’ Society, blankets for the Bishop’s Stortford Homeless Shelter, sensory bands for dementia patients... If the members want it, we could do a joint knitting project, or even link up with another U3A group to do a joint craft project.
There is no membership fee for the group, but you should be a member of Thorley U3A before you can join it. We offer refreshments at each meeting for which there is a charge of £0.30.
We maintain a list of other knitting and crocheting groups in the area, and of places which provide relevant training courses and classes.
