Harrow Knitters’ Regular Meeting Venues

Simply Daisy’s

– and –
Daisy’s in the Arts (Inside),
Harrow Arts Centre,
171 Uxbridge Road,
Hatch End,
HA5 4EA

The Harrow Arts Centre is right next to Morrison’s in Hatch End.
There’s a large car park, but it’s frequently full. You can chance your arm in Morrison’s car park though.

Daisy’s in the Arts is inside the arts centre and it’s a lovely evening space – there’s alcohol available if you’re so inclined and the hot chocolate is good. Lighting is slightly better than in Oddfellow’s so you can bring non-garter st projects. Remind me to find out if children are allowed.

Simply Daisy’s is tucked away next to the Dance Studio, photo instructions here. A great place for daytime meets and it’s kiddie friendly (as are we).

Bus routes: H12, H14
Trains: Hatch End Station on the Watford DC line.

The Oddfellows Arms Pub,
2 Waxwell Lane,
Pinner,
HA5 3EN

Oddfellow’s is opposite Lidl or the Police station in Pinner. The lovely, lovely landlady seems to have a soft spot for us which we abuse terribly. We must knit up something for her again! Ideas pls!

We meet here twice a month and it can be calm and quiet or very, very busy with us knitters! Features include a special chair to sit on under certain, controlled situations. Come along and find out what we’re on about!

There’s always plenty of parking in the car park ‘round the back of the pub.

Pinner is on the Metropolitan line, and the following bus routes serve Pinner: H11, H12, H13, 183

Costa Coffee in Harrow Town Centre
1-9 St. Ann’s Road,
Town Centre
Harrow,
HA1 1LQ

It’s a Costa, what can I say? It’s NOT the one by the station, it’s opposite the fruiterer’s market stall in the big pedestrianised piazza in front of the two main shopping centres. We tend to sit in the alcove round the back of the barrista station, so we’re not visible from the door. Come right in and take a proper decko if you don’t see us at first glance!

I tend to park in one of the shopping centres, but there are plenty of choices.

Harrow is on the Metropolitan and Piccadilly lines and is served by the following bus routes: 114,140,183,186,258,340,640,N18. Possibly more besides.

Papa Gateaux
4 Cumberland Court,
Princes Drive,
Harrow,
HA1 4UD.

Papa Gateaux stays open late especially for us, so there is a £2 contribution if you come to this meeting. The cakes and hot chocolate are well worth it though! He’s a lovely guy, we should probably knit him something too! There may or may not be a couple of fluent french-speakers in the group, so this meeting’s a little bit like taking a holiday in France for a couple of hours (I think).

Parking’s a little trickier, but you can usually find a place further up the street.

The nearest station is Harrow and Wealdstone on the Bakerloo and London Overground lines, and the following buses serve the station 140,182,186,258,340,640,H9,N18.

Calling All Harrow Knitters

Hello! If you’ve previously read about us Harrow Knitters on girlpurlandtwoknittingneedles‘ blog, I’m updating the info! This post accurate November 2012.

The Harrow Knitters are a very friendly group of crafty ladies of all ages and walks of life. If you just want to give knitting or crochet a go, or you already know 3 kinds of estonian nupp, come along and join in the banter. There’s frequently cake! Maybe bring a garter stitch scarf if you want to catch up on the gossip! There’s always someone with an interesting story to tell or a new technique to show. 

All meetings are knitting and crochet. We try and change the day and time throughout the month so it doesn’t clash with member’s other commitments.

On the first Tuesday of every month, 8pm at Daisy’s Bar & Bistro in Harrow Arts Centre, 171 Uxbridge Road, Hatch End, HA5 4EA. This is inside the arts centre, not Simply Daisy’s which is adjacent to the centre. This is a new venue for us and a change from Grim’s Dyke. Rail: Hatch End, Bus: H14, H12 & 182, Parking: Free parking is available.

On the 2nd Monday of every month at 8pm at the Oddfellows Arms Pub, 2 Waxwell Lane, Pinner, HA5 3EN (opposite Lidl or the Police station). Babies/children cannot attend due to the pub’s license.

On the 3rd Wednesday of every month at 8pm at the Oddfellows Arms Pub, 2 Waxwell Lane, Pinner, HA5 3EN (opposite Lidl or the Police station). Babies/children cannot attend due to the pub’s license.

On the 4th Thursday of every month at 10am at Costa Coffee in Harrow Town Centre next to Natwest Bank and opposite the Fruit & Veg stall (not the Costa Coffee next to the station).

On the last Friday of every month at 8pm at Papa Gateaux, 4 Cumberland Court, Princes Drive, Harrow, HA1 4UD (£2 contribution).

A suggestion has been made that it would be good if one member volunteers to ‘host’ each meet-up so that someone can greet new members etc.
