Welcome to Knit, Stitch & Natter

2019 was another amazing year for us, thank you to all who knitted and nattered with us, and for all your donations and creations.

They have helped us fill our stalls throughout the year and across the seasons, with your spring, summer, autumn and winter themed knitting. Culminating with the Harvest Coffee morning and the Christmas Fayre Knit, Stitch & Natter have raised over £2,000 an amazing total.

Easter

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. 

Christmas

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.
