In November 2014, UNACCI (Upper Nithsdale Arts and Crafts community initiative) launched a major new knitting project which is hoped to make a significant impact on the economic climate of Upper Nithsdale. The idea of the initiative is to ultimately resurrect a dying cottage industry. A cottage industry which centres around knitted textiles.
For more information on the initiative, to browse the gallery and to purchase knitwear, please visit the Sanquhar Pattern Designs website.
We are always looking for new people to join our team of knitters and learn how to use our knitting machines. You don’t have to be able to knit , you can be a complete novice! Please contact us to discuss further. Some evening sessions are available.
