Calling all knitters!


Celebrate Worldwide Knit in Public Day by coming along to the Air Force Museum and joining fellow knitters for a big ‘knit-in’ among the aircraft in the sunny and spacious Conference and Events Hall.

Bring along your latest project to work on or share, have a look at some wartime patterns and garments from our collection, meet some new people and enjoy a good ‘yarn’. You’ll also have the opportunity to hear from one of our curators, who will be leading a discussion on wartime comforts and the importance of knitting on the Home Front during World War Two.


Date: Saturday 13 June 2020
