Knitting in the Round will be in Sanquhar, Dumfriesshire on Saturday 1 November 2014 at the A’ the Airts Arts Centre, 11 am – 3pm. We are holding an informal public event to explore Sanquhar knitting – its history, its current popularity, the skills required, the wool needed and the patterns recorded.
There will be short talks, an opportunity to visit the Museum and a chance to try Sanquhar knitting for yourself.
Watch this space for more details. In the meantime, to whet your appetite, here are some lovely gloves from the South West Scotland Future Museum www.futuremuseum.co.uk
