As part of Knit Two Together, Stellar Quines and Heart of Hawick are hosting a series of knitting circles/local history sessions. At these sessions women and men of all ages can knit, learn to knit, share their stories and memories of knitting, learn more about the history of the Border’s textiles industries – and knit some more! All materials will be provided.

Helen KennawayHelen Kennaway will be on hand as a lead knitter. Helen can teach you to knit if you want to learn, or maybe you did learn a long time ago and have forgotten how. This is your chance to re kindle the skill. Helen’s grandmother taught her to knit, crochet and embroider. She could knit before she went to school and now hosts knitting and craft workshops all over the Borders and in local schools.

There’s no need to book a place, simply turn up on the night. Feel free to join in one or all, or as many of the events as you wish.
