We are an informal friendly group who “knit and natter” in each other’s homes, on the third Tuesday of the month at 2pm. There are currently 10 members with room for another. Although we are all female, men would be welcome.
Patterns and ideas are exchanged and help given.
Members knit for themselves and make articles such as poppies and Christmas gifts sold for various charities and given to local hospitals.

Knitting Group ‘A’ has continued to meet monthly in members’ homes. This year we have 10 members. As usual in addition to personal knitting for family and friends we maintained our support for various charities. Lots of tiny hats, bootees and cardigans were sent to St Mary’s Hospital and Wellspring received hats, gloves and jumpers. Twiddle Mitts and fidget bears were used by Stepping Hill and our Easter and Christmas sales of small items raised money for Saint Anne’s Hospice. Sheila Porter
