Abakhan Knitting GroupsOur Knitting themed Workshops & Courses have been running here at Abakhan for a few years now and have been steadily growing in popularity. Whether you are a beginner or would just like to learn a new technique, we like to think we have something for everyone! Take a look! Abakhan Workshops & Courses One thing that we have wanted to get going for a long time is a weekly 'Stitch n Bitch' style meet up - where like-minded knitters can get together to learn new techniques and improve their skills and most importantly chat & have fun. So we’ve decided to host a series of free 'Knit & Natter' groups at our two of our stores.
We will have our talented knitting tutors Mary Walton (Liverpool store) & Maivena Bingham (Mostyn Store) at the ready to guide you through and help you with any techniques. All you need to do is bring along a pair of needles or a hook if you can and we’ll provide the knitting yarn.
