The Craft Group has been running for over a year now and has grown from 3 regulars up to 7 now with many people just dropping in and out as suits. We meet on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday’s of the month, from 1pm till 3pm in the Church Coffee Lounge.
During the year we have supported Many charities, as you will see from the photographs.
We started with supporting the Moses Project who supply Moses baskets filled with everything a mum will need in the first couple of months. We supplied lots of knitted garments and blankets as well as Moses baskets and toiletries for mum and baby. We also raised £255.00 at a Soup and Mince pie afternoon.

Since then we have been involved with knitting for a Spring Fayre in Trumpington, poppies for a display in Church, Trauma teddies for the emergency services in the Suffolk area and more recently Twiddle Muffs for dementia patients in Addenbrooke’s.
We also knit prayer shawls which we give to anyone we think will benefit from having one, either because of illness, bereavement, had a baby or getting married.
We have taught knitting and stitch carding to those who have come to our group and offer Cross Stitch, Crochet and Tatting.
Everyone is welcome, all abilities, male or female and we always enjoy seeing other people’s craft. We also offer colouring for those who just want to sit and relax.
Although the session runs for 2 hours, people can come and go as they like and it is entirely free. We are able to offer materials due to the generosity of members of the congregation.
We are a lively group who perhaps spend more time nattering than crafting so we don’t bring along too difficult a craft as we end up having to take it out due to lack of concentration.
We are now beginning to look towards Christmas and hope to do #Christmas angels – this is quite a big project and we will need many knitters and decorators.
