Leading up to Easter our knitters are busy knitting chicks and bunnies. Please join in if you would like, patterns can be downloaded from our list below or if you have your own idea please feel free to create. We do have enough  knitted baskets this year but anything else you would like to make would always be very gratefully received. 


We were once again overwhelmed by donations of knitted items in the build-up to Christmas! Stockings, candy canes, robins, tea cosies, Christmas puddings, snowflakes and elves, all proved very popular when on sale at the many events over the festive period. As always both Christmas trees at the Tunstall and St Justus tree festivals were decorated with wonderful white and purple handknitted decorations. Please do keep them coming as they do occasionally need to be replaced.

Thank you to all our knitters for making this possible. 

A special thanks to Pat Wade and Sue Turner who work tirelessly to make this all happen. Our knitting group has evolved so much and it’s all thanks to them.
