We are looking to hold a monthly social knitting/crochet event to support charitable causes. The aim is to meet new friends and to knit/crochet for a charity that each individual would like to support.
By offering a variety of charities you can choose to make something you enjoy - be it blanket squares/hats/scarves for the Homeless; hats/matinee jackets for premature babies; worry monsters for children undergoing psychiatric help; twiddle muffs for dementia sufferers - the choice is yours. The aim is to have fun whilst doing something worthwhile for others.
We are in the process of getting donations of wool - all of us who knit or crochet have a stash somewhere! - and I will have some to purchase but if you could start by bringing needles and some of your own (and any spare) yarn to start with that would be great. We will be providing the patterns downloaded from the various charity sites but please feel free to bring any patterns you particularly enjoy making.
If you are unable to attend the event but would like to contribute some yarn then please take your donation to
St Peter's Church, 19-21 Cambridge Street,
All donations would be very gratefully received.
Entrance is £2.50 for tea/coffee/biscuits which will go towards the cost of hiring the facilities.
We really hope you will join us in this new adventure. Anyone wishing to learn to knit would be very welcome as there will be someone on hand to help and knitting blanket squares or a scarf is a great way to learn.
OUR FIRST KNITTING GROUP IS MONDAY 25TH FEBRUARY 10am-12pm - HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!
