Hello, and welcome to the CloseKnitManchester blog!

This blog is to coincide with a series of year long knitting workshops being held across Manchester at Whitworth Art Gallery, the Manchester Art Gallery, the Manchester Museum and Gallery of Costume .

Each session will have a different focus and a different location, but all will fall on the last Saturday of the month. They will be a great chance to meet new people, show off your own projects or perhaps learn something new. It doesn’t matter if you are a complete novice or a semi-pro, everyone is welcome.

The first session is on the 28th January at the Costume Gallery and it would be great if you could join us! The ‘Stitch in Time’ workshop will be a chance to hear all about the programme and get started on some knitting. We’ll do some ‘get to know you knitting’ and share some of the hidden gems of the Gallery of Costume’s knitted collections.

Download the leaflet for more information.

Hope to see you there,
Closeknitmanchester Team

    Hi Closeknit, do I need to bring anything with me such as knitting equipment wool etc? Do we meet at the venue on each date? Also, I am a complete novice so wil missing the 1st session be a problem?



    • Hi Lina,
      We do provide some wool and needles but of course your welcome to bring your own or your current project. It’s no problem that you missed the first session, each will have a different focus and different project. At the first session we had a range of people come all with different abilities -those who were good at knitting were on hand to help those who were learning so don’t worry at all about this, especially since I am only a learner too!
      See you next time xx
