Club Talks

If you're looking to get into knitting but you're not sure who to talk to or where to go, then joining a knitting club is an ideal solution to this problem. You'll make new friends, become better at knitting, and even gain inspiration from guest speakers! There's really no limit to the benefits to you as a knitter, so it's always worth finding a local club.

Of course, speaking of guest speakers - or hosted a talented local knitter at your club, then look no further than Sue. She has years of experience as both a knitter and a speaker at clubs, and is happy to visit people. She enjoys speaking to groups large and small, and will impart as much of her wisdom as she can.

Sue has a well deserved reputation for entertaining, informative and well researched talks on machine knitting topics - ideal for machine knitting and needlework clubs .
