Logo of the Mapperley Knit & Natter Club

We are a group of enthusiastic machine knitters, who get together once a month to share ideas, and to learn more about our craft.


Knitting machines aren't easily carried around, so we have two club machines that we use for demonstrations given by club members, and to help new knitters (and those returning after a break) to get to grips with their machines.


Although we're a machine-knitting club, most of our members also hand-knit or crochet (or both) and often bring something to work on during meetings.

When we meet

We meet on the first Monday in the month, unless that is a bank holiday in England. In that case, the meeting moves to the second Monday in the month.


Normal meeting times are 6.45pm to 9pm (doors open at 6.30pm).

Where we meet

Killisick Community Centre

Killisick Road




There is a small car park and on-street parking nearby.


The venue is on one floor, with wide doors. There is an accessible toilet. The car park is 100m away (a kerb and then a short path across the front of the building). There is one accessible parking space immediately in front of the venue. If you need to use it and are not a regular visitor, please let us know in advance. This way, we can ask people who have brought others less able to walk to move their cars promptly.

Future meetings

Meeting details for at least the next 3 months are listed, and details are added as they become available.
