Coventry Knit-Wits

We're a group of about 20 of all ages and abilities. In fact it's a really broad age range, goingfrom members in their 20s to those whoare70-ish.

How did the group get started?

We started four yea rs ago, thanks to the efforts of founder member Kellie James, and we've never really looked back.

Club contact details (if different)

What sort of things do you knit?

We knit all sorts ofthings, really. There are the usual things to wear and then there's the not so usual. One of our members recently knitted a Victorian sleeping cap. And Jane Harrisson, who's the organiser now, has knitted a plastic bag-out of plastic bags!

Coventry Kn/t-lV/ts have completed some unusual projects.

Do you knit for any charities?

We have had group projects for charity. We knitted forthe local Special Care Baby Unit, and we've knitted forthe children In Romanian orphanages too.

What are meetings like?

We chat about anything and everything from the minute we start knitting to the minute wefinish. We meet in a hotel bar so it's usually soft drinks all round. On the first Wednesday of each month we have a workshop, so we're all learning all the time.

What are your plans for the future?

We had a great time at Woolfest at the end of June, up in Cockermouth in

Cumbria, so we'll definitely be doing that again. And at the beginning of July we wereattheGodiva Festival herein Coventry, hopingto attract some new members, so we may be back doing that again in 2010. It's great to get out with your knitting!

What advice would you give anyone wanting to start a club or join one??

If you're startinga club, find a quiet venue, pick a week night and advertise. If you want to join one, the internet is a great sou rce of information.

Coventry Knit-Wits meet In the bar at the Britannia Hotel, Fairfax Street, Coventry every Wednesday, 7-9pm, It's free, although voluntary workshops (first Wednesday of the month) may charge a small fee for materials.
