Proposed New Group ~ Craft and Contact (Knit and Natter!)

Proposed New Group ~ Craft and Contact (Knit and Natter!) At the Admirals Landing every Thursday from 11.30 until 1 pm. This   could   be   a   good   opportunity   for   new   members   to   meet   people   and   maybe   ask   questions   they   don't   have   chance   to do at the coffee mornings, which can be busy and noisy. We   will   be   taking   on   projects   from   various   charities, such   as   prem   baby   clothes,   crochet   blankets   for   refugees   etc,   so donations of wool or any other crafting materials would be welcome. You don't have to make anything, just come for a coffee and chat! For more details please contact me on 444426. Dawn Group Co-Ordinator
