Knitting Groups

“In stitches @ St Georges” is an informal group who meet together with a common enjoyment of knitting or crotchet. The group is based in the village of Ruishton just a few miles from Taunton in Somerset.

The group meets on the 2nd Friday of every month and new members are always welcome.

Meetings are very informal. Each year the group chooses a project to work on together. This project provides plenty of knitting or crotchet to keep everyone as busy as they wish. Members can however if they wish bring their own work to a meeting or can take the opportunity to ask advise or learn a new skill.

During 2018, In stitches @ St George's will meet on the following dates between 10am and 12noon in the Ruishton Church Meeting Room.

August 10th - September 14th - October 12th - November 9th - December 14th

Newcomers are always welcome and anyone who enjoys knitting or crotchet should just come along.

Project update

“In stitches @ St “In stitches @ St George's” present  “A Celebration of Women”. It will be on display in Ruishton Church throughout July. Focusing on the achievements of women in Britain the group has used knitted figures to highlight and identify women who were “the first”. The figures sit in a village setting and include some of Britain's remarkable but not necessarily well known women. Many will remember that Margaret Thatcher was the first women to become Prime Minister of Great Britain but how many are aware that the first women to become a British Cabinet Minister was born and grew up in Chard!

How to find Ruishton Church Meeting Room (TA3 5LL)

Looking at Ruishton Church from Church Lane, the white gates of “The Old Vicarage” are on your left. Go through those gates and follow the left fork of the driveway for about 40m. The modern brick building of the Church Meeting Room will appear ahead.
