Norfolk Knitters and Stitchers - providing support to charities at home and abroad with lovingly hand knitted and sewn items.
There are now 2048 members and 90 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!

The charity takes shoeboxes out to Romania, Moldova Bulgaria Albania and the Ukraine. They do Shoeboxes for the elderly and families as well as children. They particularly need gloves although of course hats and scarves are appreciated.
We have been asked to knit lots of hats for the sailors that arrive at our ports from warmer countries and have little idea what the North Sea is like!!. They also require balaclava's, mittens and neck warmers. All patterns can be found on the patterns page with permission from The Sailors Society.
