04/10/2014 - Grand Exhibition - October 4th
Our Grand Exhibition was a fantastic success with over 700 attending. There were stalls from over 20 different charities showcasing the knitting and stitching our members do throughout the year. Some of the comments received:- "Absolutely awesome - I have been blown away by the quality and diversity of items made by Norfolk (and Suffolk) knitters". "Brilliant inspiring event" "I feel inspired to go home and make something after many years of forgetting how enjoyable it can be to create"
What's Needed?

International Aid Trust

International Aid Trust are very grateful for all the items we give them but are desperate for larger things for the older children and adults. Could you knit a jumper or make a dress or shorts for an older child?

Shoebox

It's that time of year again and our friends at the Samaritan's Purse Operation Christmas Child need knitted items to go in the children's shoeboxes. They need hats, gloves, scarves as well as hand puppets and bags for the children to play with. Can you help?

Knitted Breasts

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."
