Big Knitting Group


The group was started as a result of a request for knitting sessions. Why is it called Big? Because the group formed at the time of the 'Knit A Sock For The Sockman' project. The Sockman is a big lad which called for big socks. It is also Big because it welcomes people from across Charnwood and indeed the world.

We have mixture of members some very experienced volunteers and members who are beginners . We also have participants from several social care groups. We now meet at Charnwood Artshouse 29 Granby Street Loughborough LE113DU.on a Thursday 12.30-2.30pm. All are welcome and sessions are free but we ask for 50p or whatever you wish to contribute towards refreshments and running costs. We are currently have an exhibition 'Our Knitted Story' which is being held at Charnwood Museum until July 5th 2015. This session isnt suitable for participants that need a high level of support. But, support workers are welcome to attend.

Hello Jemma.
You dont know me but I hope you will bear with me while reading this.
I will be 80yrs old in May so I dont do a lot of knitting now although I still buy the knitting magazines mostly to keep up with todays knitting trends and to read any interesting websites on the net.
Yes I do have a computer and I also have two WW2 websites that have been well read by over 13,000 people from worldwide. I tell you this just to let you know how I got your e-mail address.
Now to tell you exactly why I have contacted you. As I stated earlier I still like to buy any knitting magazines and very often they have free gifts with them that are of NO use to me. I wondered if they would be of any use to you and the knitting project that you run.
There are all sorts of things in the bag that I have been putting the stuff in which includes knitting needles of all sizes. Plus many things that will be useful to fully fledged knitters such as bag handles. There will also be oddments of yarn and some of the knittiing books. I will copy this and send it to you by e-mail just in case you dont call in this site.
Please let me know if they will be of any use to you.
My address and phone number will be on the e-mail that I am sending to you.
Best Wishes.
