Knit and Natter

Our Knit and Natter group meets weekly in the Kings Arms ( at 10am on a Monday (excluding Bank Holidays).

We split our time between working on our own projects, and working on joint projects such as making angels at Christmas, and poppies for remembrance etc. We also help each other out when we get stuck on projects and techniques.

We enjoy a hot drink and a good gossip, the group is for folk at any stage of their crafting journey from absolute beginners (one of our group only started crochet during lockdown) to experts who are willing to share their knowledge with others.

We also help out by making crafts to sell at the churches’ fundraising events.
