WMC: June 2017
This year we would like to share God's love and to bless the community in public places and community spaces with a Christmas message.
To do this we will need to knit many, many little angels.
These will have a tag attached to them with a Christmas message.
The angels will be blessed in Church just before Christmas and will then be left around the town for others to find.
I know that Christmas is a long way off and that the summer is not the best time to do knitting but some of you may like to make a start.
You can get the knitting pattern from me or go to the website www.christmasangel.net
Knitting can be fun to do while chatting with a friend or as part of group.
In September I hope to set up a knitting group. If you need any more information please get in touch with me.
