WMC: May 2018
Knit & Chat
The Knit & Chat group continues to meet in the Parlour at Wantage. I have recently delivered the vests, hats etc. that we have been knitting and they were gratefully received. I learned that they will now no longer be accepting the vests but are happy to receive other items. Many of us are starting to knit the Christmas Angels as this year we have set ourselves a target of 1000 angels. Can we do it?
If you don't knit but would enjoy chatting with a friendly group over tea and biscuits, then do come and join us.
Please feel free to bring your own craft project.
Knit & Chat in May — Monday 14 May and Monday 21 May
