Meeting on the last weekend of each month.
As well as having a chit-chat, meeting up with friends and making new ones, we plan to knit and crochet various items for charities like festival blankets for Oxfam, little hats for The Big Knit in aid of Age UK, Baby blankets for EACH (East Anglian Children’s Hospices) and much, much more!
Knitting needles are provided, but if you prefer to bring your own please feel free to do so!
The Waiting Room Cafe/Kitchen/Bar will be open serving refreshments and lunch in form of Pie & Mash is also available from The Gamekeeper's Daughter. See a full menu and other information here: http://s.coop/1wkel
All abilities welcome – so whether you can knit with your eyes shut, or you’re a novice with the needles, come along, we’ll soon have you up and running!
If you or anyone you know wants to donate DOUBLE KNIT wool that would be great – thanks. It will all be put to good use to help many charities raise vital funds.
Also, if you are a Timebank member, you can bank this event.
