Conference programme:

The conference programme for In the loop 3 is now finalised although there may be unforseen changes before 5 September 2012, keep your eye on the website!

Direct link to the complete programme:

The programme has been reshaped to accommodate all speakers plus refreshment breaks and lunches in a logical and interesting sequence. It has been quite complex and difficult as there are thirty presentations in total so it is a very packed programme. This of course reflects the considerable interest in all aspects knitting.

The conference will now start at 10.00 instead of lunch-time and we will try to finish at 16.30 on the last day.


On the first day registration will take place from 09.00 – 10.00 at the Winchester Discovery Centre. All delegates will receive a Loop 3 conference bag at registration.
