Knitting Groups

“In stitches @ St Georges” is an informal group who meet together with a common enjoyment of knitting or crotchet.The group meets on the 2nd Friday of every month and new members are always welcome.

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.
In Stitches @ St George's will have it's first meeting for 2019 on Friday January 11th from 10 – 12am in the Ruishton Church Meeting Room.

2018 has been very busy, beginning with our entry for the yarn bombing competition in the summer, this gained us a “highly commended”. In the autumn we produced hundreds of poppies and used them to cover a 6ft cross, this symbol of remembrance stood in both Ruishton School and Ruishton Church. Then as Christmas approached we once again put together our life size Nativity Scene for the restaurant of Monkton Elm Garden Centre, where it will remain until the new year. Ideas for 2019 are already being discussed.

Anyone who enjoys knitting or crotchet will be very welcome.

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.

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.
