My name is Maggie. I run Knitting for All in the Rother Valley; Petworth and Midhurst. I believe in the power of knitting as a focus for social interaction and promoting wellbeing. The rhythm and the motor skills needed for knitting, help us to relax and the sense of achievement at completing a hand-made article is very worthwhile. This is true for all ages

For children at primary school (KS2), I offer Kids Knit after school clubs and primary schools are welcome to contact me for further information.

For adults I run two Knit Cafes in local coffee shops which are for beginners, improvers and expert knitters. The meetings are informal and friendly and you will have an opportunity to progress with your skills and share ideas. I also offer a ‘Mums Knit’ group for parents and friends at the schools where I have Kids Knit.

Please contact me if you have any ideas for workshops or events in the area and keep looking at the website for special events over the summer months.
