Knitting and Sewing Club

14 January 2023

We have recently started up a Knitting and sewing club.

The idea was to encouraging the residents to sew some of the squares that we had in the activity room together and make blankets.  They loved to come to the first floor café and enjoy a hot chocolate and natter whilst sewing. But more recently a couple of the residents who didn’t think they would be able to knit said they would have a go.

The result was that three of our residents were not only able to cast on, but were then knitting their own squares, which made them feel amazing, as they had re discovered a skill that they thought was gone.  Janet, one of these ladies was so happy that she took her knitting away with her to continue in her room and later showed her daughter.
