We realise that there are incredibly talented fibre artists in our area and we’d love to work with them.   We will have hand dyed fibre by Yarns from the Plain, felt making supplies from Patricia Greaves, felt maker and Lazykate blended fibres and spinning supplies so if you know of spinners, weavers or felt makers that would benefit from having fibres they can squeeze, let them know we’re here.

Our courses are listed on the Courses page and include crochet, embroidery, cross stitch, weaving and spinning.  We have more to be confirmed over the next few weeks so keep an eye on our facebook page and remember we have the newsletter if you’d like to sign up to that.

From 14th – 19th September Knit Wise is hosting a Pop Up Fibre event where local Independent Dyers including Yarns from the Plain, Boulsworth Sheep,  producers of rare breed sheep and , who provide fully traceable yarns and fibres will have a selection of their produce on offer.

We will confirm more participants nearer the time but we would love you to share in this event which we hope will become an annual celebration.

Also, at the end of September, the 24th to be exact we are taking part in Macmillan Coffee Morning.  This is a charity that is very close to our hearts and we’d like to support it by eating lots of cake and fresh coffee!  We’re having quizzes, there’ll be prizes and our Knit N Natter ladies have promised to slave away at their ovens for this excellent cause.  So if you would love to join in, please have a word and we’d love to have you.
