Normally we add categories for you when the entry is set up, but you have the option to edit them. Very occasionally some categories have restricted usage and we’ll let you know if we feel there’s a problem.

The categories are tiered with the broadest first. Click on the plus sign till you find the specific categories that best suit your group.

  1. Yarn! (or Knit ''n'' Natter as it was) is the Huddersfield version of the American Stitch ''n'' Bitch. The first meeting was on the 18th of May 2005. Hurrah! we are 10 in May 2015. A birthday cake would be in order but we made do with the tempting selection on offer at Caffe Nero, which we all enjoyed on a regular basis. We moved on to The Blue Rooms in December 2015. Now we meet on the ground floor of Hammond's Yard Cafe which is easy access and has a downstairs toilet.

    The group has had several venues in its 10 years and has occasionally taken on challenges like Knitting in Public or knitting hats for African babies, but mostly we’ve enjoyed and been inspired by the varied projects that appear on our fellow knitters and crocheters needles and hooks, whether for family, friends or even ourselves.
