  • October 2017 - Knit & Stitch is about to restart after its Summer break. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone again and no doubt the ‘Show and Tell’ will reveal what everyone’s been up to. Please do bring your pieces of work to show, even if they are not quite finished. It’s always nice to see what’s been …
  • June 2017 - Phew! What a lovely hot summer’s day today was. Too hot to be out and about maybe, but just right for sitting in the cool of the village hall and being creative. The show and tell session saw a stunning quilt which had been 2 years in the making, but well worth the effort. The …
  • Knit & Stitch May 2017 - A lovely needle felted baby seal was presented to the group through the show and tell session. Made on a local day course, s/he won lots of hearts. Most people had another attempt at making a little macramé owl keyring. Having to be ambidextrous and working with both hands equally was a bit of a …
  • Knit & Stitch April 2017 - We met a week earlier than usual this month due to the Easter holiday period. However, as schools do not appear to co-ordinate their holiday dates we still managed to clash with grand-parenting duties in some cases! An assortment of projects were in hand at this session. A new ‘cosy cover’ was being knitted for …
  • Knit & Stitch Mar 2017 - My how time flies when you’re having fun! I just don’t know where the time went at our February session. It seemed that we no sooner had started than it was tea and biscuits and then home time! Show and tell included some lovely examples of cross stitch, some antique embroidered heirlooms, inspiring quilting, and …
  • Knit & Stitch Nov 2016 - How nice it was to get together with friends in our nice warm cheery village hall. We soon forgot about the gloom and rain outside as we got on with our cheerful chatter. Show and tell included a rather lovely kilt pin brooch which had been completed since our last meeting and some copper foiled …
  • Knit & Stitch Oct 2016 - Our October meeting was well attended with people having returned from their late summer break. It was also good to welcome a new member. Show and tell included some lovely lavender owls which had been completed since our last meeting. Work being undertaken again was varied, showing the range of skills and techniques covered within …
  • Knit & Stitch Sept 2016 - It was good to meet up again after our summer break. Show and tell covered a range of pieces which people had been busy working on over the summer. These included tapestry work, patchwork and sewn bunting, knitting, needlelace, fabric collage and papercraft. Quite an assortment of interesting crafts, demonstrating what a wide range of …
  • Knit & Stitch Aug 2016 - The group will restart after its summer break on September 19th. I’m looking forward to finding out what everyone’s been up to. Bring along whatever it is you are working on, or have recently finished. September traditionally is the time for making up lavender bags using lavender recently harvested from the garden. Ideas and materials …
  • Knit & Stitch June 2016 - The sun was shining, the bunting was fluttering and the 4 corgis welcomed us to the village hall for our monthly meeting. Show and tell included a colourful hand stitched felt key fob, finished off from our last meeting; a beautifully knitted jacket and some lovely handmade cards. Work was in progress on a wonderful …
