Breightmet Community Projects

I'm currently working on two creative community projects with Bolton at Home and they are well on their way.  The first one (which has been going since October of last year) is with the Breightmet Knit and Natter group at the UCAN centre on New Lane.  We meet ever other Wed. from 1:30-3:30 the first and third Wed of the month.  We are knitting squares to be sewn together into a blanket which will be raffled off for the charity Help for Heroes.  Squares are starting to roll in and they are a colourful bunch!  If you would like to contribute we are looking for squares about 4x4 inch in size.

The second project will be starting next week. A new crafty group will be meeting at the Leverhulme Children's Centre ever Friday from 1-3pm in the cafe.  There will be a cheap lunch from noon.  Our first meeting will be on November 4th!  Next week I will be sneaking round the area doing some yarn bombing... knit graffiti to advertise the group.  There will be free yarn to get everyone started, cool badges and free magazines. Not a knitter?  No problem.  You can bring along any sort of craft.  We will be working on a knitted flower garden which will be on display.  Here is a little taster.........
