Needles & Pins


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 1 of 3 charities (small teddies, hats & mittens for the neo-natal unit, hats, scarves, mittens, toys and blankets for orphanages in E. 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. We welcome new members, including those who wish to learn knitting or crochet.
