Monday 11th April

Liz Holness, Chairman of the Guild of Machine Knitters was our special guest, and she didn't disappoint.

First we had tea, and were treated to a première view of Liz's photos of recent exhibitions, where the Guild were represented: at the NEC, Nottingham and Shepton Mallett

Then Brenda gave us the annual financial audit

And then to the main business.

Liz talked about machine knitted skirts:  she showed us various shapes, yarns suitable for skirts, and an interesting technique for attaching the waistband.  We had a lengthy discussion about steaming, including the Inex steaming kit, which explained a lot, for me at least!
