Stourton Caundle Knit and Stitch group

Knitting, Crochet and Sewing

Our small group enjoys weekly afternoon meetings during the winter months from November until the end of March.
As well as working on our own knitting, crochet and sewing projects we are pleased to make many items for charity.

For the Sailors’ Society we knit cosy hats, neck warmers, socks and fingerless gloves.  Many of the recipients work on ships and send their earnings to their families and depend on the Society for clothing etc… when they dock in UK.

We knit lots and lots of so called “fish and chips” jumpers and hats and blankets for new born babies in Malawi. Their very poor mothers would otherwise take the babies home from hospital wrapped in paper like take-away fish and chips!

Vibrantly coloured jumpers were also knitted for children in Ukraine and Syria.

Bobble hats, scarves and Christmas stockings are made for The Welcome Club Christmas Bazaar sales table. Other saleable gifts go to the shop at Walsingham Cathedral to raise funds for “Let the Children Live” (a charity that provides food, shelter and education to street children in Columbia).

Donate unwanted yarns
If you are having a turnout and would like to donate any unwanted knitting yarns to the group we would be pleased to put them to good use.
