Joan Elliot Knitting Award

In memory of our long-standing member, Joan Elliot, who died in 2013, we have put in place an annual Knitting Award. Joan was a great knitter and among her possessions that were passed on to the Guild by her family was this beautiful, original painting of a young lady knitting (see left). This has been chosen as the award, to be given annually, in a new competition in Joan\'s name, dedicated to promoting excellence in knitting.

Two categories of knitting were recognised in the first year, 2014: garments and accessories.These categories might change over time. In addition to winners in each category, an overall winner will be chosen
