Needles and Pins
We are a very friendly group, so there is lots of chatter and laughter while knitting, drinking tea and coffee and eating biscuits.
Bring along your own project to do and if you need help, there is always someone willing to assist or teach new things for knitting, crochet, cross stitch, embroidery etc.
The emphasis is on having fun, socialising whilst enjoying our hobbies.
We try to have a few workshops each year, e.g. Dorset buttons, Christmas decorations and we have special events.
Some of us make things for charities, such as blankets/hats and mittens for neo-natal wards or twiddlemuffs for dementia patients. We also do knitted toys for the shoeboxes sent to deprived children. If you want to get involved, then you can use the time to produce items.
