Knitting Groups

'In stitches @ St. George's' grew out of a project which was organised to produce a knitted arch of flowers (right) toarch of knitted  flowers enter the 'Yarn Bombing' competition as part of the 2015 Taunton Arts Festival.  Such was the success of the venture that the group won the competition, receiving a knitted cup as a prize.

In stitches @ St George's will next meet on Friday 11th August between 10am and 12noon in the Ruishton Church Meeting Room. Newcomers are always welcome and anyone who enjoys knitting or crochet should just come along.

Our “yarn bombing” tableaux for Taunton Live 2017 celebrates the Queen's 65 year reign, her Sapphire Jubilee. We are pleased to have found an indoor location this year and our Queen (not the real one!) will be enjoying tea and cake in Jenny's Tea Rooms, Bath Place from July 24th – 29th. Early in August she will be relocated to enjoy her tea and cakes in Ruishton Church, so please pop in and say “hello”.

The Creech Knitting Group meets every other week for a cup of tea, a chat and, of course, lots of knitting.  Knitted strips are made into blankets and many jumpers, hats and scarves are also produced.  Other people make knitted items at home which are then passed on to the group.  The items are forwarded to 'Christian Response for Eastern Europe' who ship them to Moldova, Europe's poorest cThe knitters show what they have madeountry, providing warm clothing for many who live in poverty.  Some of the smaller items produced by the group are also included in the shoeboxes that are filled each year by church members for the 'Operation Christmas Child' charity who bring a bit of Christmas cheer to children in Africa and Eastern Europe.
