Brampton Knit Stitch and Knatter Group

Brampton Knit Stitch and Knatter group is going from strength to strength, with new members appearing each week.  We knit for charities in Africa and more locally, with wool donated by the public.  We send teddies for the shoe box appeal at Christmas and help projects in zambia and Swaziland.  The ladies knit at a rate of knots and each week we make blankets and baby clothes.  The group is a life line to many of the members, it gets them out of the house, meeting new people, sharing skills and having a coffee. We now have the local primary schoold dropping in for half an hour every week.  Between 5 and 6 children come with their teacher and learn to knit with us.  The children really enjoy themselves learning a new skill and the excitement is spreading around the school, they all want to knit. The class is aiming to knit squares for a blanket, which will go to Africa.

The Knit and Natter Group: Doncaster Community Arts

This knitting and crochet group started from the inspiration of 2 participants taking part in a visual arts project who were keen to carry on with a group activity and share and learn new skills. The group meet weekly, sharing their skills, bringing their handiwork and creating group projects together. The group have created textiles from plastic bags, video and cassette tapes, string, anything we could get our hands on! We have made a giant scarf to decorate a sculpture as part of The Big Draw exhibition, showcasing all our different stitches and skills. The group are currently making a notice board that will go on display in darts’ building at The Point and are besotted with making flowers as the final decorations!
