Worshipful Company of Framework Knitters
The Worshipful Company of Framework Knitters is one of the Livery Companies of the City of London. It was incorporated by Oliver Cromwell in 1657 (reissued as a Royal Charter in 1663) and was granted livery status in 1713. Unlike many other companies, the Framework Knitters' Company has retained close connections to its original trade, most members of the company being involved with the craft. The company does not, however, function only as a trade association of knitters, also supporting various charities.
The Framework Knitters' Company ranks sixty-fourth in the order of precedence for Livery Companies. Its motto is Speed, Strength and Truth United.
