Knitting History Forum

Knitting History Forum

Discussion group of the Knitting History Forum (KHF), an international society which advances and promotes the history of knitting and crochet through research, exchange of ideas and information and by historical reconstruction. Our lively international following includes textile specialists, historians, knitwear designers, lecturers, conservators, students, re-enactors and lovers of knitting and crochet from many walks of life.

The high point of our calendar is the annual Knitting History Conference, but KHF is accessible online all year round. This email discussion group welcomes everyone with an interest in knitting or crochet history - you don't need to join KHF to join the conversation. Signing up to is free - you can choose to receive emails directly in your inbox, or login into to read them here. We look forward to seeing you, in-person or online!

For more information about KHF, information about our Knitting History conferences and details of how to join KHF, see the Knitting History website. For events and updates see Knitting History News, sign up to the KHF Mailchimp mailing list (email notices directly from KHF)  or follow us on social media:
