Our first meeting of 2018 was a packed one: we had the annual competition/exhibition, with lots of entries, and a discussion about the club’s future in the light of the possible demise of the Guild. We also discussed problems with access to patterns, but the consensus was that it was more of a design issue: we are often stuck for ideas about what we want to knit, rather than not being able to find patterns. But the discussion was lively and interesting.
We had two winners of the competition, both worthy, so two awards were presented!
Long time member, Fran, who has sadly decided to retire from machine knitting [we will still see her, though, thankfully], kindly donated all her equipment and resources to us. Members were able to snap up bargains. For those who missed it, there is still plenty left for February!
