Art and crafts

- - - - - - - - -


We are a very friendly and sharing group, exchanging advice, patterns and ideas. Members bring along their own work, any form of knitting, crochet, tapestry, cross stitch, bead work etc. If nothing is needed for themselves then there are many ideas for items for one of three charities: small teddies, hats and mittens for the neo-natal unit; hats, scarves, mittens, toys and blankets for orphanages in Eastern Europe; and twiddlemuffs for dementia patients N.H.H. For all of these we usually have a supply of donated wool if needed. We try to have a workshop or demonstration each month so are always very busy. 

Current Activity

We returned to face-to-face meetings in Christ Church, Chineham, twice a month, beginning on 10th September 2021. We have added another charity ( The Safe Basingstoke) for which we can make any baby , toddler items. They are always very grateful for our bags of goodies and mostly we have made baby  blankets and cardigans. These are given out to very needed mums.

We are hoping to be able to start a few workshops soon but obviously times have been difficult lately. 

We have a waiting list of members wanting to join this group. If you are interested in joining this Group, please use the Contact Us form at the top of the page to send us your details. When space allows, we will be happy to get back to you with a starting date.
