Here at the wool shop we have a round table and you’re always welcome to pop in and knit or crochet with us. If you want some help with a pattern or learning a new technique… or perhaps you just want to meet some new people.
We would like to welcome you to the newly renamed International Knitting and Crochet Club of Newport Pagnell – (or the wool shop’s knit&natter), a time and place where we get on with our own projects over a cuppa and some good conversation. These reunions take place regularly, once a week, as follows:
Monday from 10am to 12 am Español y Punto. Knitting with Spanish conversation. Please note these are not Spanish lessons, although we will explain grammar points and new words if and as they come up in our conversation. A medium to advanced level of the language is ideal to join this group, although improvers are welcome and will take a lot of value from joining this sessions. Not suitable for completely beginners though. Small fee of £5 – tea and/or coffee included.
Thursday from 2pm to 4pm Come in and join us in a relaxed afternoon and knit or crochet over a cuppa. Small fee of £1 – tea and/or coffee included.
Friday Euroclub from 3pm to 5pm Like the knit and natter but with a European feeling. Do you consider yourself European? Would you like to hear us count stitches in a number of different languages? The common language of this colourful group of creative peeps is English (except when counting stitches!) Open-minded people from outside the EU are also very welcome. Small fee of £1 – (or €1) tea and/or coffee included.
Learn to knit/crochet
One-to-one sessions: Please let me know what techniques you’d like to learn and we’ll arrange a mutually suitable date and a time to run a session just for you. These one-to-one sessions will last about one hour (or a bit longer if you require) and incur a small fee of £15.00. We also have spinning wheels available if you’d like to have a go at learning how to spin your own art yarns.
Group sessions: If you want to get together with your friends and learn to knit we can arrange a time when you can come to the shop, and over a tea/coffee and biscuits you can all learn to knit/improve your knitting skills/learn to read a pattern, etc… . Just let me know what techniques you’d like to learn and we’ll arrange a mutually suitable date and a time to run a session just for your group. These can last as long as you want (within shop opening hours, or you can book an evening, subject to availability) and if booking for groups of 3 or more people you can enjoy a reduced fee of £10.00 per person per hour. We also have spinning wheels available if any of you would like to have a go at learning how to spin your own art yarns.
