Craft lovers have the chance to meet fellow enthusiasts, learn new skills and raise money for charity with a new venture starting at St Peter’s Church in Wimblington.

Beginning on Monday, April 11, the craft group will run from 1pm-3pm – initially fortnightly.

One of the people behind the idea, Peter James, said: “We’re hoping to do knitting for charity as the basis for the afternoon.

“This will enable people who cannot get out to perhaps be involved, making small items like baby clothes, hats, gloves or blanket squares, as well as helping people who want to learn to knit. It is believed the group could also embrace other crafts, the idea being it will bring people together to share their skills – this could be machine knitting, dress making, card making, quilting, etc, etc, providing a forum for discussion.

“We are lucky enough to have some very experienced people with these skills to help others.”

Refreshments will be provided and the group would also be open to people who would just like to come along for company, to enjoy a cup of tea and perhaps talk about learning a skill.

The first meeting will decide how the group is run. At the moment it is scheduled to be fortnightly. The cost is £2 per session, refreshments included. For more details call Peter James on 01354 741872 or email pefjay@yahoo.co.uk
