Norfolk Knitters and Stitchers - providing support to charities at home and abroad with lovingly hand knitted and sewn items.
There are now 1900 members and 84 groups around the county knitting and stitching for charity. We support many charities from orphanages and families abroad to small projects at home. Age is no barrier – members range from the young to some well over 100. We have groups in diverse situations reflecting the whole community. Get in touch if you are interested – there's room for everyone!
Age UK are in need of large blankets for their elderly and vulnerable clients to keep them warm in the cold weather.
Can you help? Lots of patterns for squares on our pattern page.

With the New Year come new challenges. We are always being asked for knitted items to raise money so anything especially small knitted toys which are easy to sell are very welcome. We have been asked for small wild life animals by a local branch of the wildlife trust, eg. hedgehogs, owls, birds, foxes or badgers etc
We have been asked by Breastfeeding Friends for lots of knitted breasts, this is what they said " Health visitors work in the community with expectant and new mums. One of our most useful teaching aids for feeding is a knitted breast! We need lots for all our staff."
